Ex-Megadeth Member Nick Menza Talks Firing

Ex- drummer Nick Menza spoke with Metal-Sludge.com about his firing from the band after 10 years playing with Dave Mustaine. Nick explained, “I went in for knee surgery and after I got a call from Dave. He basically said that my services were no longer needed. I though he was fu**in with me, but he was serious it turns out. I told him it was my band too. He said ‘No, it’s my band’ and that was that. I was pissed at first, then relieved a bit.” As for why he didn’t do the VH1 Behind The Music featuring Megadeth, he explained, “I was asked to by the producer. I didn’t want to, because I know that they can chop it up and what I really say can be altered. Dave has the last word on all things done and at the time, I was not going to be made to look like an idiot by being edited. So, i declined.” Read more.
