Megadeth's Dave Mustaine Forced To Adjust His Headbanging

(Classic Rock) Last year at the age of 49 Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine found himself struggling with a back problem that left him in agony and has limited his ability to keep headbanging on stage.

"Something had broken in the back of my neck," he recalls. "I had a bone fragment in my spinal column the size of an eraser. The pain had me on my knees, sobbing. My hand went numb. My ring and pinky finger were not communicating with my brain. But the surgery was a complete success.

"The act of headbanging, when it started, was to play guitar, stand in a wide posture and move your head up and down. Now I move my torso a little bit more and get the desired effect. I make the necessary adjustments I need to keep myself healthy. It's been a blessing in disguise."
