Megadeth Bitching: Mustaine And Young At War!
It appears that a full-scale verbal war has broken out between Dave Mustaine and former Megadeth guitarist Jeff Young.Mustaine fired the first salvo during a recent interview with www.undercover.com.au.
In this, he claimed that the band’s 1988 Australian tour had to be cancelled because Young had run out of heroin and insisted on going back to America.
Mustaine also said that Young hit on his then girlfriend, which led to him being fired, while simultaneously suggesting that the guitarist quit Megadeth at that point in a fit of pique, because he’d found a love letter from Doro in his (Mustaine’s) suitcase – and Young was allegedly in love with German singer.
Inevitably, Young has hit back, calling Mustaine “a lying piece of shit”. He goes on to describe how Mustaine was so off his head most of the time, the rest of the band had to cover for him on stage.
Young further claims the aforementioned Australian tour was pulled so that Mustaine could go back into rehab. During the course of this rant, Young also cites the time a fan asked Mustaine for a guitar pick, and got the contents of his nose instead.

Be warned, it’s not exactly in the spirit of Christmas!
