But must be lived forwards...
I'm losing my senses”

“So Far,So Good........................So What?”

“I went there anyway-knowingly, willingly-because I wanted a number one hit. I wanted what Metallica had, even if it meant selling a piece of my soul to the devil.”
Dave Mustaine, Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir
“Finally, I found what seemed at the time to be a lid of some sort. Presuming it was a toilet seat (but not really caring one way or the other) I lifted it up, then dropped my shorts and began to piss. Ahhh...success. Then I stumbled back to bed and passed out. It wasn't until the next morning that I realized what had actually happened. I woke to the sight of Junior standing over my bed with a look of disgust on his face. "Hey, man. Did you pee in my suitcase?”
Dave Mustaine, Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir
“I let that swim around in my aching head for a few minutes - "the arsenal of megadeath...the arsenal of megadeath" - and then, for some reason I can't quite explain, I began to write. Using a borrowed pencil and a cupcake wrapper, I wrote the first lyrics of my post-Metallica life. This song was called "Megadeth" (I dropped the second "a"), and though it would never find its way onto an album, it did serve as the basis for the song "Set the World Afire." It hadn't occured to me then that Megadeth-as used by Senator Cranston, megadeath referred to the loss of one million lives as a result of nuclear holocaust-might be a perfectly awesome name for a thrash metal band.”
Dave Mustaine, Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir
“You don't shit where you eat, and you don't try to fuck your bandmate's fiancée. Especially when your bandmate is your boss.”

“Some years later, long after he and Megadeth parted company, Jay Jones was stabbed to death with a butter knife during-rumor has it-a fight over a bolonga sandwich. That's not funny, of course. But, if you knew Jay, neither is it particularly suprising.”
Dave Mustaine, Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir
“One-way ticket nowhere there's no windows on his train.
Can't see where I'm headed but I'm going there again.”
Dave Mustaine
“Let’s put it this way: I did not get in trouble every time I drank, but every time I got in trouble, I’d been drinking.”
Dave Mustaine, Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir
“I need a hundred dollars and some suction”
Dave Mustaine, Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir
