Dave Mustaine did not leave Metallica, he was kicked out because of his drinking and substance abuse. He was known to have an aggressive behaviour and frequently showed up to practice drunk and incoherent. Mustaine also had anger management issues that led him to assaulting James Hetfield. Also he drove the original bass player Roy McGovney who was a high school friend of James out of the band after a fight they had.

Mr. Mustaine was shooting heroine, cocaine, and using any chemical available. He did not like himself at all. The boys fired him but I still love Megedeth.

he did like himself, but he took drugs to ease pain probably

wrong: Hetfield and Mustaine both wanted McGovney out of the band because they believed he wasn't contributing enough he was just following. Also because they seen Burton play at a show called whiskey a go go in a band called Trauma, and were blown away by the way he used a wah wah pedal.

He did NOT "frequently" show up to rehearsals drunk and/or incoherant as stated above. This was not the cause for his untimely exit from Metallica.

The actual incident that sealed his fate was sparked when McGovney and Hetfield unleashed their "aggressive behavior" on Mustaines dog for jumping on hood of McGovneys car, by kicking him repeatedly. I would not consider defending an innocent animal from two idiots "aggressive", in fact any other reaction would be cowardly. So this whole rumor of Dave having an"aggression problem", is also inaccurate. Even at his worst, Dave is an intelligent, rational human being, many try and make him out to be otherwise becasue they are

jealous, or threatened by him because of his level of musical ability.

Dave and Metallica are on better terms now. During the events of the Some Kind of Monster, Dave and Lars got to vent their anger. Megadeth will also be playing with Metallica at Sonisphere 2010.

Dave Mustaine never recorded any songs with metallica besides the during the demo "No Life 'Til Leather" Some of his guitar riffs were used in future Metallica songs such as The Four Horsemen, and Ride The Lightning, But he never actually recorded music with Metallica.

Dave Mustaine no longer hates Metallica. In recent interviews he has said that he complete respect for the band and was pleased to be invited to Metallica's Hall of Hame endowement by Lars. Despite this he has made it clear that he has more respect and is closer with Hetfield. If it wasnt for him being kicked out of Metallica, MegadetH wouldn't exist!!! also mustaine even wrote a song in response to cliff burnton's death on they're album so far so good so what?

No. Although they aren't close, they haven't been feuding. Dave Mustaine has had talks with Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield, settling their differences and resolving their issues. During the recent Big Four tour, Dave Mustaine played on-stage with Metallica, indicating that there has been a bit of an understanding between the two.

Dave Mustaine is the lead singer for the thrash metal band, Megadeth. In person, Dave Mustaine is a very down to Earth and friendly guy.

cliff Burton and Dave mustaine was in metallica Many people believe that Dave Mustaine was Metallica's first guitar player but they are wrong. In October of 1981 Metallica had a guitar player for just that month. His name was Lloyd Grant and he was a guitar teacher that did Lars a favor by joining the band for a very brief period. If you do not believe me then read the liner notes for the Garage Inc double album.
