Dave Mustaine of Megadeth Reveals He Had Throat Cancer

by Paul Cashmere on June 18, 2019

in News

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has sent a message to fans to let them know that he has been diagnosed with throat cancer.

Mustaine says he is already undergoing treatment and his plan has an expected 90% success rate.

In a statement he said:

‘I’ve been diagnosed with throat cancer. It’s clearly something to be respected and faced head on – but I’ve faced obstacles before. I’m working closely with my doctors, and we’ve mapped out a treatment plan which they feel has a 90% success rate. Treatment has already begun.
Unfortunately, this requires that we cancel most shows this year. The 2019 Megacruise will happen, and the band will be a part of it in some form. All up to date information will be at megadeth.com as we get it. Megadeth will be back on the road ASAP.

Meanwhile, Kiko, David, Dirk and I are in the studio, working on the follow up to Dystopia – which I can’t wait for everyone to hear.

I’m so thankful for my whole team – family, doctors, band members, trainers, and more.
I’ll keep everyone posted.

See you soon,… ‘

Dave Mustaine was the original guitarist for Metallica but he left the band before their first album ‘Kill ‘Em All’ in 1983. In 1983 her formed Megadeth and in 2017 picked up the Best Metal Performance Grammy Award for ‘Dystopia’.
