What do you get when you cross Megadeth with the San Diego Symphony?

I don't know either, but we'll find out on April 12, 2014, at downtown's Copley Symphony Hall

Symphony Interrupted at Copley Symphony Hall will feature San Marcos-based Megadeth guitarist Dave Mustaine doing an as-yet-unspecified collaboration with the San Diego Symphony on April 12, 2014, in a program set to include Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries,” Vivaldi’s “Winter,” and Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9 (aka the “New World” Symphony).

Mustaine was born September 13, 1961, at Grossmont Hospital in San Diego. His parents split when he was young and his mom raised him as a Jehova's Witness. He left her La Mesa home as a teen.

None

In 1981, he quit his first band Panic to become Metallica’s original lead guitarist, before getting replaced by Kirk Hammett in 1983. Mustaine moved to Rolling Hills Estates in Fallbrook in late 2004, along with his wife Pamela, their kids, and their horses. His local recording studio Vic's Garage operates in San Marcos.

In Summer 2005, Mustaine told KNAC's Philthy Phil that he won't perform certain songs now that he's embraced Christianity. "The ones that I did that I'm not doing anymore that to me are just wrong [include] the Sex Pistols' 'Anarchy,' 'cause it says, 'I'm an anti-Christ.' I'm not really anti anybody, so I had to kind of take a look at that." Regarding his status as the only permanent player in the band he calls Megadeth, Mustaine said, "I think the people are aware; when I left Metallica and came home on a bus, I did not stop off and pick up a bass player. I went home and started it on my own."

Mustaine filed a petition for divorce in San Diego Superior Court in 2006, seeking dissolution of his marriage to Pamela Anne Casselberry, whom he wed in April 1991 before the couple movied into their $1.2 million house in Fallbrook's Rolling Hills Estates.

The couple had a son in 1992 (Justis David), a daughter in 1998 (Electra Nicole), and another son in 2002 (Victor Gar). Victor Gar was named after Megadeth mascot Vic Rattlehead and former band drummer Gar Samuelsson, who died in 1998. Justis plays guitar and has appeared in several local theatrical productions, including one in which he played Elvis Presley.

Megadeth's DVD Blood in the Water: Live in San Diego, filmed in May 2008 at Cox Arena, premiered on HDNet television in early November '08.

The recording process for Megadeth's twelfth studio album began on January 7, 2009, at the band's own Vic's Garage studio in San Marcos. Released by Roadrunner Records and produced by Andy Sneap (Sabbat), it's the group's first with album guitarist Chris Broderick, who replaced Glen Drover at the end of 2007.

Mustaine's signature Dean double-neck guitar will be released next month, limited to 75 copies with double-necks combining a 12-string and 6-string electric guitar. Megadeth's next album Super Collider is said to have been completed last week. Horn player Bob Findley will guest on on the track “A House Divided,” having previously performed on Megadeth’s 2001 album the World Needs a Hero (on the instrumental tune “Silent Scorn”).

Super Collider is scheduled to drop in June via Mustaine's new label, Tradecraft (distributed by Universal), the band’s first release after splitting from Roadrunner Records.
