Dave Mustaine -- (born September 13, 1961 in La Mesa, California) is the founder of legendary thrash metal band Megadeth, which he formed after being too violent for the liking of the members of Metallica.  Mustaine has a very solid political and anti-war stance, and he is often seen as the writer of very controversial lyrics.

Mustaine is now a born-again Christian, who lives in Fallbrook, California, although he supposedly resided in Scottsdale, Arizona, during most of the '90s and into the new millennium.
