Dave Mustaine talks about upcoming autobiography

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine is writing an autobiography which is scheduled to be released next year. Co-author of the book, Joe Layden, also wrote "The Last Great Fight", a look at the 1990 Buster Douglas upset over then champion Mike Tyson. Mustaine is writing the book partially to dispel common thoughts about his character.

"It's easy to hate somebody that you don't like," he said. "But you know what? People don't know who I am. Who they think I am is not really who I am, because they guy that they've continued to vilify in the press, that guy's been gone a long time. And I think anyone who reads this book will see that."

In the book, Mustaine talks about his teenage experiences with black magic, which inspired his 1986 tune, "The Conjuring".

"I put two hexes on people, and they both worked and the result was just what I was asking for," he explains. "Now, it took forever to get that Satanic depression off of me because it's just like playing with a Ouija board. You open the doorway to the dark side, and spirits come through. It took almost 20 years to get rid of that Satanic depression. I did it when I was 15, and I don't think I got free of it until I was in my mid-30s.You ask yourself, 'How is it possible that this is happening to me?' Well, because you flirted with the devil and you put a hex on somebody and you put another hex on somebody, and, well, you owe him. And that's why I have a problem playing 'The Conjuring' today."
