The lead singer/ guitarist in US thrash metal group Megadeth, Dave Mustaine, has been diagnosed with throat cancer.
In a statement released this week, Mustaine, 57, said his diagnosis is “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 per cent success rate. Treatment has already begun.”
Megadeth has cancelled its coming tour of several countries to celebrate the band’s 35th anniversary.
