(hennemusic) Megadeth kick off the North American portion of their "Countdown To Extinction 20th Anniversary Tour" on November 9 in Providence, RI. Before the North American dates begin, the group are headed into the studio to begin work on a new album.
Dave Mustaine has issued the following update: Last Thursday I went to see an ENT (ear, nose, and throat Doctor), to find out the status of the damage to my vocal chords that they discovered prior to my surgery, and my neck from after the surgery. I was told during the first MRIs that I had a cyst or something on my vocal chords, and I didn't give it anymore thought, because the fusion was way more important.
I still find it laughable that someone I know said I was a p****y while lying in an ER awaiting spinal surgery for contemplating cancelling the BIG 4 show in NYC. I guess the old saying, "You spot it - you got it!" applies here. Except I don't want to offend our female fans by comparing this excrement to a body part of theirs.
I walked away from the surgery, which was done after the concert (who's the p****y now?) and was a complete success, thinking I had nodes or polyps or something, and I wanted to wait until a year after the surgery to go get checked, because I just didn't want to go under the knife again that soon, if of course I had too. Thank God I don't.
Fortunately, if you can say that, my problem with my vocal chords is treatable. Read the rest here.
