Megadeth's Dave Mustaine Collapses in Russia

[Update] A quick follow up to this story from last week. Apparently, the story about Dave Mustaine's kidney trouble was based on inaccurate information, which sometimes happens with trying to report on news stories with little or conflicting information, but we now know that he did not collapse and wasn't hospitalized. Our news partner at Rock News Desk has issues a follow-up article clearing up the errors. We, as we are sure that the editors at RND, are just happy to learn that Dave is doing ok and his condition wasn't as serious as first assumed and knowing RND editor Martin Kielty and having worked with him, we know that this wasn't intentional or done for any ill intention. Yes, some publications operate that way, but Martin, like antiMusic do our best to bring you the best information we have available without any other agenda. You can read RND's follow up article here.

(Rock News Desk) Dave Mustaine has apologized to fans in Russia after Megadeth only managed to play a six-song set in St Petersburg on Wednesday but he's revealed doctors told him he shouldn't have played at all.

The thrash icon collapsed before the European Carnage tour show with Slayer, and was found to be suffering the effects of a kidney stone. Medical experts wanted to send him to hospital immediately, but Mustaine insisted on playing at least a short show.

"Two hours before the show I started to feel like I had a hernia, or I'd been hit in the groin. I told my tour manager I needed a doctor and it might be in my best interest to cancel the show and I rarely cancel shows," He explains. "After 45 minutes of prayer and sweating like a dog, I was told to pee for the doctors. They explained there was blood, and gave me an IV, an analgesic and an anti-inflammatory injection. The next hour is blurry. But I woke up and David Ellefson was holding my hand and praying over me. more on this story
