DAVE MUSTAINE becomes first-time grandfather
Dave Mustaine recently became a first-time grandfather.
On Sunday (November 12), the MEGADETH leader shared a photo of him holding Georgette Monroe Mustaine, the daughter of his son Justis. He captioned the image: “Georgette Monroe Mustaine and her ‘Opa,’ with an Angel in the background looking over their shoulders.”
Justis and his wife Angela Mustaine welcomed Georgette Monroe on October 28. The baby weighed in at seven pounds and 12 ounces and measured 20 inches.
Justis and Angela have been together for eight years, but they didn’t get married until May 2022.
This past May, on their first wedding anniversary, Angela wrote to her husband on her Instagram: “We’ve been together for almost 8 but this last one has literally felt like magic. I love you so so much and I’m obsessed with this life that we are creating.” The 31-year-old Justis responded in the comments, writing: “Happy Anniversary and I LOVE YOU, can’t believe how much we fit in one year already and a little Mustaine on the way. I can’t wait I grow old with you.”
In addition to Justis, Dave and his wife of 32 years, Pamela, have a 25-year-old daughter Electra, who, along with Pamela, runs the family’s boutique wine company House Of Mustaine.
Justis is an artist manager who currently works for CTK Management, which represents Dolly Parton, Mya, KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND and Kenny G, among others.
MEGADETH‘s current lineup includes Mustaine, Belgian-born-and-now-Los-Angeles-based drummer Dirk Verbeuren, who had played with SOILWORK for more than a decade before joining MEGADETH, Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro, who was previously best known for his work with ANGRA, and bassist James LoMenzo. James was MEGADETH‘s bass player in the mid-2000s and stepped back in as a touring member for the 2021 leg of “The Metal Tour Of The Year”. In May 2022, it was announced that Lomenzo was officially rejoining the MEGADETH family.
Last September, MEGADETH‘s latest album, “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!”, debuted at the top of the charts during its first week of sales, taking the No. 3 spot on the Billboard 200 as well as number ones on Top Album Sales, Top Current Albums Sales, Top Rock & Alternative Albums, Top Rock Albums and Top Hard Rock Albums. “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!” was the highest-charting MEGADETH album of all time around the world, notching No. 1 In Finland, No. 2 in Australia, Poland, Switzerland, and Scotland, No. 3 in the U.K., and more.
