Dave Mustaine, vocalist and guitarist of the hard rock, metal band Megadeth, confirmed he has been diagnosed with throat cancer. Mustaine made the announcement in a Facebook post saying: "I'm working closely with my doctors, and we've mapped out a treatment plan which they feel has a 90% success rate." The iconic rocker said that his treatment has already begun but the band will have to cancel most of their 2019 tour dates. According to CNN, the 2019 Megacruise, which has been described as "five days and nights of heavy metal decadence and debauchery," will still set sail this October. Mustaine was a member of Metallica from 1981 to 1983. He left to form Megadeth, which has gone on to earn 12 Grammy nominations and a Grammy Award in 2017.
