Born September 13, 1961 in La Mesa, California, Dave Mustaine is the founder of the heavy metal band Megadeth. He is the former lead guitarist of rival band Metallica. Shortly after being booted from Metallica in 1983 for drug related problems as well as personality conflicts among the Metallica band members, he created his band. Dave is known for his exceptional musical gifts. His skills in rhythm as well as lead guitar and vocals are astounding. Although Megadeth has never been quite as popular a heavy metal act as Metallica (15,000,000 albums vs. Metallica's 90,000,000), Mustaine still prides himself on his music. In Metallica's "Some Kind of Monster" movie documentary, he pays a visit to Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, and expresses his regrets about leaving the band, telling Ulrich, "If I could go back to that day and change it, I would." He recently renewed his faith in Christianity and is a devoted spiritualist.
Megadeth and Dave Mustaine might not be quite as popular as Metallica, but they have every bit of talent.
