Post Hello Me, Meet The Real Me - Dave Mustaine autobiography
So I've just finished it yesterday after a long pause half-way through it.

I'm a reader who needs to have his attention stimulated by humour, so I personally found Ozzy Osbourne's autobiography to be much easier to read. However, after a pretty grim start, this book does have pretty funny stories... and reading the book is very interesting since Dave Mustaine goes into details of his perception of his conflicts with Metallica, his bandmates and so on. He also depicts the madness of the trash metal and sex drugs n rock n roll lifestyle.

Finally, what I found most interesting at the end of the book is when he discusses Metallica being inducted to the rock n roll hall of fame. Maybe since he wrote the book, things have changed but what I understood was: that Dave Mustaine is no longer angry against Metallica and its band members, although he feels Metallica never really gave him all the credit he deserves. However he said he was not anymore trying to even up the score and is now at peace with the whole thing and friendly with Metallica. The most notable thing he felt he deserved was to be on the stage with Metallica as they were inducted in the hall of fame, and that if he couldn't get on the stage he deserved a first row seat, but when he was invited he only received a seat in the last row (I think), and so he politely turned down the offer, saying he was too busy to attend to the ceremony.

Anyone else read it? I think Ryan did. Opinions?

I wanna read it.

I don't have much time to spend on a book, though.

Read it in 3 days (avid reader, don´t blame me)

Cool book, some great stories but it lacks on band (Megadeth) stuff. Sometimes it seemed to me that the book was more about Tallica than it was about Deth.

But a book worth reading if you´d like to know something else about Dave Mustaine, because it sure is an AUTObiography. 65% of the book is just Dave...

my 2 cents.
