“We’ve Definitely Upgraded Talent-Wise, Personality-Wise, Friendship-Wise”

MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine spoke to Australian Associated Press about his attempt to reunite the band’s classic “Rust In Peace” lineup, featuring Nick Menza on drums and Marty Friedman on guitar, following last year’s departures of Shawn Drover and Chris Broderick.

“It’s no secret that the whole ‘Rust In Peace‘ reunion lineup thing was being attempted,” he said. “I didn’t want that to happen. I know when something’s good and when something’s beyond its usefulness to us because the horse is dead.”

He continued: “In no way is this meant to be offensive to Shawn or Chris, but we’ve definitely upgraded talent-wise, personality-wise, friendship-wise.”

Mustaine also shot down the widely held belief that MEGADETH is a dictatorship, explaining that his goal at the end of the day is just to be a good leader.

“A lot of people think that the way we do things is always my way but it’s not,” he said. “Sometimes I’ve chosen the right way, sometimes the way that I’ve chosen was not the right way. Basically, treat people the way you want to be treated … If you’re a good leader and you love your people, they’ll do it.”

MEGADETH‘s current lineup includes Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro, best known for his work with ANGRA, and LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler.

MEGADETH‘s fifteenth studio album, “Dystopia“, will be released on January 22, 2016. The follow-up to 2013’s “Super Collider” was recorded earlier in the year in Nashville, Tennessee and was mixed by Josh Wilbur, who has previously worked with LAMB OF GOD, ALL THAT REMAINS and GOJIRA.
