Being the center figure of Megadeth and a original Metallica lead guitarist and songwriter, he is also one of many innovators of trash metal and speed metal music.Almost 30 Years Ago when Dave Mustaine departed his initial band Panic, Metallica's drummer Lars published an advertisement looking for a lead guitarist. Thus he became a member of Metallica as the team's lead guitarist.Right after expelled by Metallica in 1983, Mustaine was very offended, and vowed to build their particular band. So he organized Fallen Angels that year, and within the summertime he attained bass performer Dave Ellefson, and ultimately they formed Megadeth, starting up another thrash story.
