He is pretty honest with regards to other musicians and his part in what went on in those days (as well as his mistakes/shortcomings), while still managing to shit upon most of those ex band members ...typical Dave

I still have that novel since the release. Deinitely my favorite autobiography of all-time.

So Drover and Broderick are out. Oh God, this is awful. They should seriously consider asking Gar and Poland to return. The albums they were on were awesome.

Why does everyone want some reincarnation of the band Megadeth was 20+ years ago? We all know it's not gonna be the same. Even if it's the same people making a new record... they're really not the same people, because they've all grown older, wiser, crazier, more domestic, and/or have different priorities than getting high & playing as fast as possible.

I think the Daves they should find some badass new blood who can help reignite Megadeth & seriously take the band to the next level. Seriously over the whole idea of getting Marty & Menza back or having Lombardo come on board. **** that. Everyone does that these days... even Loomis in AE (which is actually kind of cool) but still... Dave needs to amp up on the Megadeth game... either that, or settle the **** down & do solo albums that are more dynamic & emotionally expressive that what Megadeth is known for.

All the other thrash founders are still around, I don't see a reason why Megadeth should be the first to go. Plus, many "major" breaks have occurred before. He'll find some other fret board wizard and the band will be back together again. Also, you guys hear about his mother in law? They found her body. Forgot how she died specifically but she had dementia and stuff, not like she was murdered.

I'm happy with the new blood idea, as long as Dave allows him to compose. I really want to hear Megadeth come up with some riffs from a new musician, so I can rest assured that Dave isn't the only one with musical abilities in the band.

No Marty Friedman. He's written my favourite solo of all time and I really respect him, but I don't see him coming back to thrash after Jpop. I want some really thrashy lead guitarist, who will remind everyone which genre Megadeth originally belongs to.

if both Drover and Broderick left the band at the same time, during a very difficult (even insensitive) time for Dave, Im pretty sure its because they both tried to input their ideas for the band and dave said no. Brodericks "hired guns" comment was pretty absolute. Any new blood likely wont get past the writing solos part of songs.

I like the idea of new blood, but we have to remember that its been done before in Megadeth twice now(you can argue that pitrelli was well known at the time). If we are to get a new guitarist, Id like him to have enough creativity to write solos that monopolize the attention in a song much like Martys solos often did. If not I think getting a previous band member back in would be great.

This would be great but Gar died years ago.

I'd be cool with Nick coming back, but not Marty. I feel like Marty has distanced himself from Megadeth enough that coming back would really seem like a cash grab, and probably wouldn't last too long. Marty has already said on numerous occasions that Megadeth's music is not expressive enough for him, which, as much as I like 'deth, is very true. Megadeth has one flavor that Dave sticks to religiously... to quote Marty himself, "Megadeth's music is gun metal grey." Seeing him come back would pretty much be a "sellout."

So with the new line-up finally announced, it got me thinking - what were fans' reactions when Pitrelli and DeGrasso were announced back in the day? Was it expected to last? I can't remember if Drover or Broderick got lots of fanfare. Did they?

Megadeth is such a revolving door that I find it hard to get enthusiastic about new members.

I remember there being mad hype when Broderick joined. I think he was in the band for like 6 or 7 years and in that time span I had a few guitar magazines where they would interview Dave Mustang and he kept going on and on and on about how Broderick was way better than Friedman

Slayer, Testament and Carcass are on tour....playing fairly close-by..is it worth spending money thesedays (50 usd or more) on Slayer? I am not a huge fan, but I love Testament and most of Carcass' material.

On another note Voivod & Vektor on one bill too...cheap tickets. well worth it I think just for Vektor alone, and even though I never truly got into Voivod I can appreciate their eccentricness :-)

Not bad. Is "Dystopia" the name of the new album?

Sounds to me like classic Megadeth, which is good to me. Keeping with the tradition. And yes, the new album, which was released Jan. 22, is called "Dystopia"

While some of Mustaine's lyrics are pretty lame overall I'm actually digging the new album. I would say it's definitely the best in recent years.

Really like Dystopia, Look who's talking and Conquer or die at the moment.

Can we bring in Iced Earth to corroborate with Megadeth to form something to the effect of "Dystopia 2: Future Still Sucks"?
