During the interview on Forbes, Dave Mustaine talks about Bruce Dickinson’s cancer battle:

“After I was diagnosed with it, I thought, ‘I want to call Bruce,’ it’s not like I have a whole Rolodex of rock friends that sing heavy metal music that have throat cancer [laughs], so my choices were limited. I was pretty proud of Bruce after speaking with him,” he continued. “Although we’re not super close, I consider him to be someone I look up to. He basically told me the same thing I just told you: surround yourself with good, upbeat, positive people, places, and things and try not to cause any unnecessary stress on yourself.

When you’re a frontman in one of the biggest bands in the galaxy, you don’t really have to tolerate the frontman of the other bands very much, but he’s always been super kind to me and very, I don’t want to say ‘gentlemanly,’ because I don’t want anyone to think that he’s not a bad motherfucker!”

He sadly revealed his throat cancer diagnosis in June 2019 on social media accounts. But after five months of his diagnosis, Dave Mustaine was told he was cancer-free last October. Check out the ‘Rust in Peace’ album below. You can also order here.
