To mark the 30th anniversary of Megadeth’s seminal album Rust In Peace, Hachette Books has set a September 8 release date for “Rust In Peace: The Inside Story Of The Megadeth Masterpiece”, a new book by Dave Mustaine (the lead vocalist, guitarist, and primary songwriter of MEGADETH, the original lead guitarist of METALLICA, and the author of The New York Times bestseller “Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir).

Based on publisher synopsis the book covers details making of MEGADETH‘s iconic record ‘Rust In Peace’, which was released in 1990, the process of hiring the band and supporting cast, of trying to handle the ensuing success, and ultimately the pressure of fame and fortune-which caused the band to finally break-up.  According to publisher book also includes stories of “alcohol, drugs, sex, money, power, property, prestige, the lies the band was told by the industry-and the lies they told each other”

GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Slash featured the book’s foreword: “Rust in Peace put the band on the map… It made Megadeth a household name… I certainly understand why every important Rust in Peace anniversary is celebrated as a pivotal moment for both Megadeth and for heavy metal.”
