Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine is mourning the passing of his older sister Michelle.

“My friends, I have sad news to share with you today,” wrote the guitarist on social media on March 26 alongside a photo of the pair. “My sister Michelle has passed away. I was truly lucky to have a sister like her.

“Rest in peace, my dear Michelle.”

No details surrounding Michelle's passing have been made available at this time.

Mustaine and Megadeth are currently on hiatus from the road due to the global health crisis; the band are planning to resume their live schedule in June when they begin a co-headlining tour of North America with Lamb Of God.

The guitarist recently returned to the stage for shows earlier this year following his diagnosis and recovery from throat cancer.
