Former Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman hasn’t ruled out the possibility of filling in for departing guitarist Chris Broderick in the band, saying that he “has never said ‘never’ to anything in [his] life.”
On November 25, both drummer Shawn Drover and guitarist Chris Broderick announced their exit from Megadeth, casting enormous doubt over the band’s future. Since then, there have been questions on whether former members like Friedman and ex-drummer Nick Menza will fill their spots.
When asked by MyGlobalMind.com if he would consider re-joining Megadeth or if that chapter of his life was officially over, Friedman replied, “I don’t really have an answer for you. I know that people would want to know. Honestly, I don’t have an answer. I have never said ‘never’ to anything in my life, so who knows? I really don’t know.”
Friedman originally left Megadeth in 1999 in order to make the kind of music that he was passionate about: Japanese pop music, or J-Pop, which he has called “embarrassingly happy.”
