Megadeth Pays Tribute To Pele

The heavy metal band Megadeth took to its Twitter account to pay tribute to the Brazilian football legend Pele.

Being a legend is not easy in any way. Besides being talented, it may also be necessary to dedicate your life to what you would do. Pele was such a football player too. He was a world-class talent and made the whole world admire him. His total of 1279 goals scored in 1363 matches helped to make him one of the best players in the world.

Born on October 23, 1940, Pele struggled with health issues for years. Everything started in 1977 when the football legend Pele had his right kidney removed. In 2012, he underwent a successful hip operation. 2018 and 2019 were not good for him too, as he experienced several surgeries, including removing kidney stones. In 2021, Pele had surgeries to remove a tumor. On December 21, 2022, it was reported that Pele‘s tumor had advanced. On December 29, 2022, Pele passed away at age 82, and the cause of death is a complication of colon cancer.

Legends are always treated with respect. Language, religion or race does not matter anything. A legend is a legend for everyone. Pele was also a football legend and was also on the radar of one of the music legends, Megadeth. When Pele passed away, the Megadeth band wrote a short text for the football legend. The text was about what a good football player and a good person Pele was.

“We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Brazil’s mighty king of football,” Megadeth tweets with a photo of Pele. “Truly one of the greatest to play the beautiful game. Our thoughts and condolences to his family, friends and everyone who admired him. Rest in peace, Pele.”
