Autobiografia de Dave Mustaine será lançada no Reino Unido e Austrália.


The paperback edition of MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine‘s autobiography, “Mustaine: A Life In Metal” (which was published in the U.S. under the title “Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir”), will be released via HarperCollins Entertainment on June 9 in the U.K. and on August 1 in Australia.
“Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir” landed at position No. 15 on the New York Times “Hardcover Nonfiction” best sellers list. The book was released in the U.S. on August 3, 2010 via HarperCollins‘s It Booksimprint (focusing on pop culture, sports, style and content derived from the Internet). The U.K. edition, “Mustaine: A Life In Metal”, hit bookstores in the U.K. on September 30, 2010.

“Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir” was co-written by New York Timesjournalist Joe Layden who also authored “The Last Great Fight” about what is considered by many to be the biggest upset in the history of boxing: James “Buster” Douglas‘ tenth-round knockout win over Mike Tyson in 1990.

In a recent interview with Exclaim!, Mustaine stated about the process of writing his autobiography, “It was really cathartic. When you’re putting your life down into a book, you wonder what you’re gonna leave behind you. I want to leave a legacy of achievement but one that says you can overcome anything. I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth. I had to work my ass off to get what I have and I love what I have. I’m very grateful for it and I don’t take it lightly.”

He added, “Telling the truth is hard for anybody. The only uncomfortable thing about this was putting the stuff in there that made me look bad, but I had to in order for it to be the truth. I could have written a book that was all about, ‘Oh, I love me. I’m so beautiful and wonderful,’ but that wouldn’t be true. I don’t think I’m that great and the beauty of the book is that I am fallible. ”

Regarding the legal aspects of telling his life story in book form, Mustaine said, “There were a lot of other things legally we had to look at because there were a lot of people in my life that, if I tell the story, they’re going to jail. It’s not about getting pissed off. They’re going to jail. Nowadays when you tell a story… say there was a dude I had an encounter with [but] we don’t know each other anymore. I [relate] the story and all of a sudden someone goes sniffing into that person’s life. It’s an invasion of privacy so there’s that and there’s the fact that there are ambulance chasers everywhere. We had to word it in a way that the information got out but still told the same story. Legally, the same thing being said one way is totally malicious another way. That’s something I had to learn.

“It’s very bizarre — for lack of a better word — trying to figure out how to tell a story two different ways and keep it the same story. When you see somebody who’s an attorney working somebody in the witness chair, they need to ask the right questions to get the right information out. That’s basically what happened. We had to word it in a way that the information got out but still told the same story. Legally, the same thing being said one way is totally malicious another way. That’s something I had to learn.”
