Dave Mustaine, lead singer and guitarist for Megadeth, used to live the life of the stereotypical heavy-metal rock star."I never went to sleep, I passed out," Mustaine said. "I never RTC woke up, I just came to. It's really no way to live."Mustaine will freely admit that he is a "serious, raging, full-blown drug addict," but he's been clean and sober for more than 14 months ."When I got arrested I had nine different chemicals in my body," said Mustaine, who leads "The Clash of the Titans," featuring Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax and Alice In Chains, at the Baltimore Arena Sunday.

Richard J. Barnet, 75, a Kennedy administration official and founder of one of the nation's first liberal think tanks, died of a brain disorder Thursday at his home in Washington. Mr. Barnet and Marcus Raskin founded the Institute for Policy Studies, based in Washington, in 1963. Advocating social action as well as scholarship, the organization has been involved in issues including civil rights, the Vietnam War, national security and, most recently, fair trade and environmental justice campaigns.

"We have a really unique relationship with our fans," says Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine. "We're not only siblings, but we're best friends, lovers and parents to them, too. Which I think is so flattering."Given the fact that Megadeth's new album, "Youthanasia," offers precisely the kind of abrasive, aggressive, intelligent heavy metal uptight parents fear most, it may seem odd to hear Mustaine acknowledge that his band has a parental side of its own. But as he explains it, that part of the band's relationship with its audience simply reflects the amount of trust Megadeth has earned over the years.

DIRTYSonic Youth (DGC 24485)Anyone who thinks Ross Perot's candidacy represented the full range of political disaffection in America today obviously hasn't been listening to Sonic Youth's new album, "Dirty." It isn't just that its songs are angry and edgy, topping dense squalls of guitar noise with snarling, in-your-face lyrics; the real power here stems from the Youth's steely determination, a not-gonna-take-it insistence that adds realism and resonance to every track. And that's as true of the searing social commentary on "Swimsuit Issue" (about sexual harassment)

The world according to RenoTHEATER Reno, the outrageous New York comedian, is on stage at the Theatre Project with a one-woman production titled, appropriately, "Reno's New Show." The show tackles serious topics such as the AIDS crisis and racial and sexual discrimination. The artist's sardonic rapid-fire delivery has been compared with that of the late Lenny Bruce. Reno's hourlong comedy hour on HBO last year garnered her an Emmy nomination and won cable's ACE award for "best entertainment writing."

Ask Scott Ian about the Clash of the Titans tour, and he immediately agrees that the package -- which, in addition to his own band, Anthrax, also includes Slayer and Megadeth -- is "about as metal as it gets."Ask him if that means Anthrax is a heavy metal band, however, and he has to chew the question over before answering."I can't even answer that," he says, finally. Speaking over the phone from a tour stop in Buffalo, he says, "I get asked that all the time -- people want to know what kind of band we are, and I don't know what to say. Really, there is no answer.
