In a brand new interview with Metroactive, MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine spoke about the band’s former drummer Nick Menza, who passed away unexpectedly in May at the age of 51.
“I know he’s in a better place now, so I’m happy for him,” Mustaine said. “He had a super successful career, he’s got a beautiful child that he left behind, and his legacy speaks for itself. There’s not a lot of guys that make that kind of statement in heavy metal.”
Menza played with MEGADETH during what many associate as the band’s “classic” era. In recent years, he joined progressive rock/fusion group OHM:, which also features ex-MEGADETH guitarist Chris Poland.
