The Megadeth founder, vocalist and guitarist Dave Mustaine talked in an interview with Heavy (Transcribed by Blabbermouth) about becoming a grandfather and health. The musician said that it’s difficult to sing in a certain pitch nowadays and recalled when he ended up with a broken bone on his back after playing polo.
“It’s a wonder, based on everything that’s happened, the guy upstairs is even letting me continue to do what I love. I don’t wanna be a victim — I can’t stand people who play the victim — so I’m not gonna give you a litany of all my injuries. But suffice to say, I feel great right now, and I don’t really think there’s anything that I cannot do.”
“I won’t jump out of an airplane anymore because of the plate in my neck. And because… you may have seen something about this, but I’m gonna be an Opa [grandfather]; my son [Justis] is gonna be a dad. I remember when I found out we were gonna have Justis, I stopped skydiving. That’s one thing I don’t do anymore.”
“I think given what’s happened to me with the stenosis and the broken neck bone, and I’ve got another broken bone in my back from riding horses, playing polo… ‘Cause I don’t know how to play polo, and for some stupid reason my wife convinced me to get out there and do it. And I ended up with a broken bone in my back. Go figure. Love makes you do some strange things, man,” Dave Mustaine said.
