Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine will always be a great example of '80s metal's unwillingness to go quietly in the night. From the moment he was fired as Metallica's lead guitarist in 1983, Mustaine has done everything in his power to be as fast and heavy as possible, compromising for no one, especially band mates. Megadeth has had as many as 20 supporting members revolve around Mustaine through the years. Not even letting compressed radial nerve damage in his left arm and hand slow him down, Mustaine has shown stubborn resilience and drive. The dividends are millions of albums sold, numerous Grammy nominations and an ever-loyal fan base. Still holding a substantial presence on the Billboard charts with the band's latest thrash metal album, “Endgame,” Megadeth and its old-school fury is set to play the National on Saturday, Nov. 21, at 6 p.m. $32-$35. 612-1900.— Mike Hilleary
