I know little of Metallica and less of Megadeth but I found this to be an enjoyable read when I picked it up for free in a travel hostel. He is very good when it comes to the nature of drug addiction - how it stops the body from producing its own serotonin so you have to get your fix to stop you feeling 'unwell', until then you're in a kind of limbo. The same with all kind of addiction really, even sugar cravings which is not to be confused with hunger pangs, but often is.

Mustaine goes easy on the sex side of revelations, but perhaps his readers are getting enough of it all ways to not need vicarious kicks. Plus, of course the man turned to Christ of late and has that in mind, he doesn't want to glorify the excesses. His ongoing feud with Metallica, who kicked him out early doors, is strange to read; it's almost as if Pete Best got his own back on The Beatles by forming The Who or something, yet forever griping for not being as big as the Fabs. You'd think he could just let it go... While he fesses up to being a bad drunk and bad company, he makes that point in a rational, matter of fact kind of way, while the digs he makes at Lars and co in Metallica have more emotional resonance. Mustaine is not quite being honest when he tells Lars near the end of the book that there's nothing much bad about him in the memoirs, and you get the sense he isn't telling the whole story about being booted off the Aerosmith tour for a flippant comment he made about them in a radio interview.

Look elsewhere for a sense of fun and excess in metal, and it does seem like a lonely life all told until he finds redemption, but I got through the book in two days flat. It's very moreish, and the way the chapters open with large font, like the sell in a magazine, lures you in each time.
