Excerpts from the Book of Dave Mustaine
Thrash founder Dave Mustaine (Metallica/Megadeth) is out plugging his new book, "Dave Mustang: Junkies, Jesus and Tight-Pant-Karate"..........
;./'.';l.,l'/.....Ok, that's not true. The real title is appropriately named, "Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir".
In order to promote the book, AOL Noisecreep has released this little gem. Back in the early 80's, when
Mustaine was still a member of Metallica, he and drummer Lars Ulrich had some sort of gang fight with metal
band Armored Saint (a band featuring former Anthrax vocalist John Bush). According to Dave, the fight ends with Mustaine going ninja on an
Armored Saint, resulting in a broken ankle......And now, I will read from the book of Mustaine:
"There was, for example, the time we were all at a party, and in walked the guys from a band known as ARMORED SAINT......
As sometimes happens in these situations, harmless verbal jousting gave way to nasty, personal insults, paving the way
for a physical confrontation. They targeted Lars Ulrich, probably because he was the smallest. I
don't remember exactly how it began; I do remember jumping off my chair and telling them to leave my friend alone. They laughed at me, much
as they had been laughing at Lars, which was not a good idea. Lars may not have been a fighter, but I was. I had training and expertise. More
important, I didn't give a shit.
.....As the guys from Armored Saint dog-piled on top of Lars, I ran across the room and applied a side kick to the first person in my path. His
name was Phil Sandoval, and he was the band's lead guitarist. The first thing I heard was a loud crack! Like the sound of a branch snapping
in half. And then the sound of someone wailing as Phil fell to the floor and grabbed his lower leg........I'd broken his ankle."
