“The ‘work’ that you hold in your hands now is the work of a friend, who is also a ‘photo-grrrrrrr-apher,’ and who has captured the very essence of my career: hungry, gritty, hard, cold, impersonal, personal, and very personal. Also, the sensitive unseen side of me, which was somewhat of an anomaly with the public and left me an enigma to my peers.” — Dave Mustaine from the Foreword

Megadeath is the reason in married! The first time I saw my husband was at a megadeath show in clifton park-I won a meet meet and greet after the show but didn't get the email- if I had maybe I wouldn't have met Brian. Instead his friend hit on me at a gas station and he ran into a candy rack trying to check me out. And the rest is history :) - Kari

Megadeth cured my arachnophobia.

I, a life-long arachnophobe, was humming "Sleepwalker" to myself and rummaging through a pile of laundry when a spider emerged. At first, I thought there was a chance that it could have been some cat hair (it was summer), but after studying it, I saw that it definitely was a spider. I continued humming to myself and took a sheet of paper, placed it on top of the spider, and smashed it with my hand.

Then a few weeks later, I was getting ready for a shower, and there was a spider on the wall in my shower. I immediately backed away, but then started humming the intro to "My Last Words" to myself, and I calmly took a flip-flop out of my living room and smashed the spider. I even used the shower after getting rid of the spider, which is no small feat for someone as seriously arachnophobic as I was!

Nowadays, if I see a spider, I barely even flinch and I don't even need to hum Megadeth to myself anymore, although I hum Megadeth to myself all the time anyway, even when there aren't any spiders. Thanks, Megadeth!
