In 2002 Megadeth's Dave Mustaine became a born-again Christian, and for a time refused to tour with bands he deemed "satanic." "When I got saved there were certain things I didn't know," he writes in his new memoir Mustaine. "And it's like that old saying when you're cooking: 'When it doubt, leave it out.'" He's since softened that stance and has recently toured with Slayer. "I spent a lot of time as a new Christian trying to get comfortable in my new skin," Mustaine writes in his book. "There were times when it felt smooth and and right; there were times when it felt like I was suffocating. It wasn't until the summer of 2005 that I began to sense harmony between my spiritual and artistic lives."
