Dave Mustaine is the cover star of the brand new issue of Metal Hammer magazine.
In an exclusive interview, the Megadeth vocalist and guitarist talks about his throat cancer diagnosis back in June 2019 and his subsequent recovery.
Mustaine says: "They hit the cancer really hard, nine doses of chemo and 51 radiation treatments, which just beats the hell out of you. My mouth is still messed up but overall, I feel really good.”
Earlier this year, Mustaine reported he was cancer free, and in the interview, he describes the moment he was told the news.
