Dave Mustaine Net Worth: Dave Mustaine is an American musician and singer who has a net worth of $20 million. Dave Mustaine was born September 13, 1961 in La Mesa, California. He best known as the was the original lead guitarist for the American heavy metal band Metallica and cofounder, rhythm and lead guitarist, and lead singer of the American thrash metal band Megadeth. His first band, Panic, was short-lived, as two members of the band were killed in a car crash after Panic's second show. Mustaine then joined Metallica as their lead guitarist. In 1983, Mustaine was fired from Metallica due to drinking, drug use and overly aggressive behavior, as well as personality conflicts. Mustaine then started the short-lived band Fallen Angels, which folded due to what Mustaine cited as lack of "chemistry, (the) energy, (the) spark…". In 1984, Mustaine joined Megadeth and added 'lead vocals' to his resumé within the band. In addition to his Megadeth duties, Mustaine also appeared in the 1988 Penelope Spheeris-directed metal documentary Decline of Western Civilization II: The Metal Years, covered the Democratic National Convention for MTV in 1992, joined former Fear frontman Lee Ving for a one-off project dubbed MD.45 (their lone album was 1996's The Craving) and designed his own line of instruments for the Jackson guitar company. After several near-death experiences, Mustaine cleaned up his act for good in the late-'90s, as Megadeth continued to tour and crank out further releases—1999's experimental Risk and their first release for the Sanctuary label, 2001's The World Needs a Hero. The band was the subject of a VH1 Behind the Music episode that same year, with Dave Mustaine being the primary focus.
