MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine celebrated his 55th birthday Tuesday (September 13) by hosting a "slip 'n' slide" party at his farm in Franklin, Tennessee. Joining him at the event were his wife and kids, as well as some of his business associates.
A seven-minute video clip shot at the party and posted to Mustaine's Periscope account can be seen below.
Mustaine and his family moved to Tennessee in October 2014 after living in Fallbrook, California for many years.
Commenting on MEGADETH's three-decade-plus existence, Mustaine told New Zealand's Stuff in a 2013 interview: "Time flies. 30 years seems like a long time, but boy, it's over so quick. Sometimes I sit back and think how many things have happened over the years, and I guess the thing that makes me feel the best is when I see how many people who'll say, 'We met at a concert,' 'We got engaged at a concert,' 'We got pregnant at a concert,' all these things that they share. These landmarks, these mementoes, they're really cool."
He continued: "I never thought I'd be doing this this long, [MEGADETH bassist] David Ellefson and I; it's crazy. And the fact we can have fun doing what we do, on top of that, just makes it so much more enjoyable."
MEGADETH's tour with AMON AMARTH, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, METAL CHURCH and BUTCHER BABIES kicks off on September 20 in Casper, Wyoming and runs through October 15 in Camden, New Jersey.
