Good news from Megadeth camp.
Legendary axeman Dave Mustaine has shared a piece of good news saying all of his Cancer test results have shown amazing progress.
Dave Mustaine revealed this in a new interview with Rolling Stone about his battle with throat cancer with which he was diagnosed back in May.
Dave also talked about the support he received from his peers and friends in music industry.
“A lot came from people that I knew but I didn’t know cared. Most notably, I got a text message back from my old brother, James Hetfield, and I was so, so happy to hear from him. Contrary to what anybody says and contrary to any of the act that we put on, I love James and I know that James loves me and cares about me. You can see that when the moment of truth is here and I’m telling the world that I’ve got a life-threatening disease. Who comes to stand next to me? James.
“And I got a text message from Ozzy, and one from Paul Stanley.”
“It was great to get one from Ozzy; I didn’t expect it from Paul Stanley. That was super b*tchin’ because in the beginning, when KISS first came out, I was just a kid and I loved them.
“I’m really grateful for everybody. Even the people who have a hard time with my behavior and my big mouth, I’m just so grateful for them showing care for me. Like they say, at the end of the day, all we’ve got is each other here in this crazy metal community.”
Mustaine also had a discussion with Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson.
“[Bruce] said when he had his disease, after his treatment was done, he was told that he needed between three to six months of rest.”
“He said to me that he didn’t listen and had a little bit of trouble, so then he realized he needed to listen. So he did and his voice came back stronger than ever. I care so much about Bruce; he was another really supportive brother to me during this whole thing. He explained to me how he did it, and it really helped. I’m just looking forward to if there’s ever a circumstance where this happens to another one of my peers, I can return the favor and help them. It’s a tricky disease, but they’ve got doctors all over the place that are figuring this sh*t out.”
