Dave Mustaine was born on September the 13th 1961 in La Mea, California. He joined the band in late 1981 and remained with them until 11 April 1983. During his short time in Metallica, Dave Mustaine (lead guitar) toured with the band, co-wrote several songs which were later featured on the albums "Kill 'Em All" and "Ride The Lightning" and recorded several songs with the band, including the "No Life Til Leather" demo tape.
You can search and find more yourself.
I suppose it is who you believe really…Mustaine (who has a severe anger problem and has major issues with the members of Metallica) or Metallica
I forgot that he wrote the music for call of Katulu on Ride the Lightining, but most of the lyrics were Hetfield….most of the album was Hetfield and Ulrich.
Most Megadeth fans claim Master of Puppets was all written by Mustaine, I don’t believe it, mostly b/c I haven’t heard anything that Megadeth put out that compares to Metallica’s early work.
Don’t get me wrong, I like Megadeth, but they weren’t ½ the band Metallica was during the mid to late 80’s metallica was.
Maybe I’m a Metallica homer, but I don’t take Mustaine’s claims seriously.
