Dave Mustaine has penned a new book detailing the making of Megadeth’s 1990 album Rust In Peace, and he’s taking part in a virtual book tour to talk to fans about it.

Mustaine will be participating in three different virtual book tour dates to promote Rust In Peace: The Inside Story of the Megadeth Masterpiece on September 9, 10 and 11. Tickets for each event can be purchased here where fans can find complete details.

Per the listing description for Rust In Peace, “The book covers the process of hiring the band and supporting cast, of trying to handle the ensuing success, and ultimately the pressure of fame and fortune — which caused the band to finally break-up. In short, it’s a true story of groundbreaking anti-pop that was moving toward the mainstream (or the mainstream that was moving toward the band), at a time of great cultural change, power, ego, drugs, and other vices that went hand-in-hand with Rock N’ Roll, circa the late eighties-early nineties.”

Rust In Peace: The Inside Story of the Megadeth Masterpiece is due out September 9 and is currently available for pre-order at Amazon.
