The coronavirus pandemic is giving everybody plenty of time to hang out together and be creative — and Megadeth front man Dave Mustaine and his daughter, Electra Mustaine, spent some of their time this week playing the Beatles classic “Come Together.”
It’s all part of a new initiative put out by the Alzheimer’s Association, which Electra shared on her Instagram post unveiling their duet, which featured Dave in a protective mask and Electra wearing latex gloves, just to be safe:

The Alzheimer’s Association’s website has a wealth of information up regarding its Music Moments compilation, the one alluded to in the Instagram post above:
The “Music Moments” album features award-winning artists coming together for a collection of new recordings and unreleased tracks. These songs honor the personal, emotional connection between music and the most important moments in life that we never want to lose.
Each track is paired with behind-the-scenes videos and personal stories connected to the songs they selected.

Dave Mustaine recently faced head-to-head with throat cancer, updating fans in September about his progress and the good news that he’d been deemed 100 percent cancer-free at a gig in late January.
