Members of MEGADETH, ANTHRAX, OVERKILL, STRYPER, LACUNA COIL and FOZZY are among the musicians who have wished Dave Mustaine a speedy recovery after he announced that he has been diagnosed with throat cancer.

Mustaine revealed his cancer diagnosis earlier today on social media. He said that he has already begun treatment as part of a plan that his doctors feel has a “90% success rate.”

Although most of MEGADETH‘s previously announced 2019 tour dates will be canceled as Mustaine undergoes treatment, the MEGADETH-curated Megacruise — which is set to take place October 13-19 — will still depart as scheduled, “and the band will be a part of it in some form,” Mustaine said.

Mustaine was a member of METALLICA for less than two years, from 1981 to 1983, before being dismissed and replaced by Kirk Hammett. He went on to form MEGADETH and achieve worldwide success of his own.

In the past three and a half decades, Mustaine has earned a loyal following. The Southern California native can be considered an architect of the speed metal movement, which is one of many branches on the family tree of heavy, guitar-based music.
