A follow up to a story from last week. Apparently, the story about Dave Mustaine's kidney stone 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 issued 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 does his best to bring you the best information he have available without any other agenda. You can read RND's follow up article here
