    Dave Mustaine, frontman of veteran heavy metal band Megadeth, recently covered The Beatles’ 1969 hit “Come Together” with his daughter, Electra Mustaine.

    Electra took the lead on their rendition, with Dave playing the guitar while wearing a protective facemask. “He say one and one and one is three / Got to be good looking / ’Cause he’s so hard to see / Come together right now, over me,” Electra sang.

    “Here’s a l’il #MyMusicMoment with my dad, Dave Mustaine, someone who I’d never want to lose,” Electra wrote on the Instagram post. “That is why the Mustaine’s stay home. We hope you do too! Wash your hands, practice social distancing and stay healthy.”

    The Mustaines’ cover of “Come Together” is also part of the Alzheimer’s Association’s Music Moments movement, which was created to raise awareness and funds to fight the disease. Artists such as Sting, Joan Jett and Sharon Van Etten recently contributed to a ten-track compilation named after the movement.
