1) AC/DC Let There Be Rock - I used to sell pot, and this girl who worked at a record store would pay me in albums. I remember putting this one on... the first song is called “Go Down” and the cover shows the scruffiest-looking hooligans I’d ever seen. I thought, “This is my band.” It changed my life.

2) Crossbow - When we moved [to San Diego] from Arizona, my son Justis and I wanted to have a sport that we did ?together, so I got him a plastic bow and he was like, “Dad, this sucks” I want a real one.” He’s really good with this thing. We almost got a compound bow, but that’s too serious. I don’t wanna be Ted Nugent.

3) Peanut M&Ms - When we were recording Endgame, I ate so much red licorice my pee turned red. I needed a new candy so I tried trail mix and only liked the M&M part. Now I can’t stop eating them. It’s like back in the day when we were smoking crack.

4) Shofar - I was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness, rebelled by doing witchcraft, and got into all kinds of bad stuff before I saw a cross on a hill one day and said, “What’ve I got to lose?” [Mustaine is now a Christian.] But my mom is Jewish, and on holidays I blow this ram’s horn to get rid of bad spirits.

5) Certificate - I met a fan in Kentucky who had throat cancer. He was only supposed to live a few weeks. For some reason, I reached out, grabbed his throat, and started praying for the dude. He lived long enough to give me this on our next tour. It’s signed by the governor and says I’m an honorary Kentucky Colonel. As far as I know, it’s the real deal.

6) Unpainted guitar body - I’m a proud supporter of Dean guitars, and they asked me to paint this guitar for a charity auction. I’m thinking about doing a self-portrait... a picture of me painting myself. The guitar is so high quality it’ll be worth having regardless of how ugly it turns out.

7) Troy sword replica - The tip’s bent. I think Justis used it to open a can of paint for his mom. That, or he killed some delirious nomad out in the desert. One can only hope.

8) Autographed helmet - I’ve been a Raiders fan ever since was a kid in Costa Mesa. I didn’t know much about the team then, but the logo was the baddest thing.

9) Coat of arms - The Mustaine name came from Finland originally. My wife Pam had this made for my 40th birthday with a cake to match. The motto is “Our strength comes from God.”

10) Miniature horse - We found Rocky living in a junkyard, abused and malnourished. A lot of stuff was wrong with him and he didn’t like people at all, but we just loved on him, and now he’s really friendly. He comes into the house to hang out. Sometimes he spits up his apples. When you’re a horse person, you get used to it.

Algunas de las posesiones más preciadas de Dave Mustaine son:
'Rocky' el poni de la familia (mini caballo).
Un arco que sirvió para que él y su hijo Justis practiquen un deporte en común.
Un escudo que le regalo su esposa Pam en su cumpleaños N° 40 con la frase "Nuestra fuerza viene de Dios" y el apellido de la familia 'Mustaine' (el nombre Mustaine es originario de Finlandia).
Una copia de la espada troyana y la lista continua.
