Megadeth: From Los Angeles, California. Guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson formed in 1983 after being fired from Metallica. 20 plus albums as Megadeth cements Mustaine’s legacy as a legend in rock and roll. Some of my personal favorites are “Peace Sells,” “Hanger 18,” “Sweating Bullets,” “Angry Again” and “99 Ways to Die.”  This pic was given to me by Dave Mustaine when I had the chance to interview him in 1996. They had stopped by the State Theater (now the Fillmore) and had the hit song, “A Tout Le Monde.” The latest news is that Megadeth will embark on their first tour since Mustaine’s illness this January and February 2020.
