Megadeth's Dave Mustaine says he has throat cancer

Megadeth's Dave Mustaine says he has been diagnosed with throat cancer. The singer and guitarist of the heavy metal band announced the news on social media. Mustaine wrote that he is working closely with doctors on a treatment plan with a high success rate and that he has already begun treatment. The 57-year-old says as a result, Megadeth has to cancel "most shows this year." But he says the 2019 Megacruise will happen "and the band will be a part of it in some form." Mustaine adds he and his bandmates, David Ellefson, Kiko Loureiro and Dirk Verbeuren, are in the studio working on a new album. It will be the follow-up to 2016's "Dystopia," which won the band their first-ever Grammy Award in 2017.
