Marty Friedman 'Absolutely Not' Interested In Megadeth Reunion
Lightning-quick axeman Marty Friedman recently sold all of his prized Megadeth-era guitars to help raise money for Japanese earthquake victims. Friedman, who is now based in Tokyo, told that he was practicing in his studio when the 8.9-magnitude earthquake hit the country in early March. "I was in the studio with my band in Tokyo", he recalled. "So the studio was going upside down and everything; it was crazy. It was very, very scary - frightening". The guitars aren't the only thing Friedman has shed from his storied past. The guitarist has also left behind any desire to reform with Dave Mustaine and company, even to take part in the 20th anniversary celebration of the band's classic "Rust In Peace" album. "Absolutely not. The past is the past. I mean, it was a wonderful album and I'm sure [the current lineup of Megadeth is] doing a great job playing it. So many fans want to hear [those songs performed live], that's for sure. Every time I do a guitar clinic, I'm signing that record like it's going out of style and they want me to play stuff from it. I'm so happy about the great impact that that record has and I'm sure they're making a lot of fans happy doing it, so I support them 1000 percent. But it's not something that I'm really interested in re-doing right now." Thanks for the report to Michael Wright,
