Megadeth's Dave Mustaine to Release 'Rust in Peace' Book This September

Rust in Peace: The Inside Story of the Megadeth Masterpiece, the upcoming book by Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine, is set to be released on Sept. 8.

The 208-page book will give a first-hand look at the making of Megadeth’s 1990 LP Rust in Peace as well as the success of the record and the pressures that came with it, which ultimately led to the band's breakup. The book was co-written by Joel Selvin and features a foreword by Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash.

The book description reads, "Rust in Peace is a true story of groundbreaking anti-pop that was moving toward the mainstream (or the mainstream that was moving toward the band), at a time of great cultural change, power, ego, drugs, and other vices that went hand-in-hand with Rock N' Roll. It is about perseverance, of scraping off the rust off that builds over time on everything: ourselves, our relationships, pop culture, art, and music."

The book is available for preorder on the band's website.
