Megadeth's Dave Mustaine Hit In The Head

(Classic Rock) Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine was forced to cut a festival set short in Croatia after being struck on the head with a stone thrown by angry rock fans.

The band were playing at Metalfest 2012 but had to endure catcalls and chants of "We want WASP" after it was rumoured Blackie Lawless had refused to perform following an argument with Mustaine.

Those rumours were not confirmed but fans took matters into their own hands by bombarding Megadeth with whatever they could find. Matters came to a head about 40 minutes into the thrash giants' set. Bassist David Ellefson and guitarist Chris Broderick left the stage while Mustaine made a difficult-to-hear statement to the crowd and followed them off. Drummer Shawn Drover appeared not to have been told what was going on he seemed to begin the next song on the band's set before grinding to a halt and disappearing.
