Clash Tuesday, 18 June 2019
Megadeth's Dave Mustaine Diagnosed With Throat Cancer"Treatment has already begun..."

*Megadeath* co-founder *Dave Mustaine* has been diagnosed with throat cancer.

The vocalist co-founded the thrash icons in 1985, shortly after departing Metallica in somewhat acrimonious circumstances.

Guiding the group to global success, Megadeth have 12 Grammy awards to their name.

Speaking to *fans online*, Dave Mustaine has confirmed his diagnosis of throat cancer, writing:

"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."

Megadeth are cancelling all upcoming shows, while his band mates - bassist David Ellefson, guitarist Kiko Loureiro, and drummer Dirk Verbeuren - continue to work on new material.

He finishes: "I’m so thankful for my whole team – family, doctors, band members, trainers, and more."

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
