Megadeth has some good news out of their camp: Frontman Dave Mustaine has completed his treatments for throat cancer.
Bassist David Ellefson mentioned the news in a recent interview with Pomelo Rocker where he said in relation to the release of the band’s new album, “With Dave‘s throat cancer treatments that he has now completed, and he’s just going through the recovery now, we’re hopeful and optimistic about a full recovery for him with that. Once he’s through that process, we’re gonna just let that take as much time as it needs, and then we’ll resume with the album. I’d like to hope maybe 2020 we’ll be able to get a new album out.”
Mustaine originally announced his cancer diagnosis back in June. In September, he took to Facebook and shared, “I wanted to take a moment to give you all an update on the current status of my health. I’m almost through the last round of treatment and my doctors are feeling very positive regarding my progress. I want to thank all of you for the support and well wishes these last few months. I can’t express enough gratitude as it has made this hard road easier knowing you are in my corner fighting with me!”
