Megadeth frontman cheats death! Dave Mustaine revealed Friday during a show in London that he's apparently beaten the throat cancer he was diagnosed with last year. "On October 16, I went to go see the doctor, and he said, ‘You’re 100 percent free of cancer,'" Mustaine told the crowd. He also thanked fans for their support by telling them, "I know a lot of you guys know that I pray. I say that in [Megadeth’s] ‘Peace Sells’. I pray every day. I say that in the song. I’ve said it since the second record. But I thought about you guys every day, too. And I thought about my family. And I got this power from you guys." The 58-year-old Mustaine revealed his diagnosis back in June, writing on Instagram, "We’ve mapped out a treatment plan which [my doctors] feel has a 90 percent success rate. Treatment has already begun." The band also canceled most of its 2019 shows to give him time for his treatment.
