Megadeth vocalist and guitarist Dave Mustaine has revealed on Facebook that he has been diagnosed with throat cancer and has already begun treatment.
Mustaine says: “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 on megadeth.com as we get it. Megadeth will be back on the road ASAP.
ROCK96 wishes Dave a speedy recovery.
