Dave Mustaine: 'I Don't Care What Anybody Says, Broderick Is Better Than Friedman'
Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine recently made comparisons of the band's current lineup and the classic roster featuring Marty Friedman and Nick Menza.

Giving Marty all the props he deserves, Dave still stressed a firm belief that the band's current guitarist Chris Broderick is superior. "I don't care what anybody says, Chris is a better guitar player," he told Vorterix Cordoba.

"Marty is amazing, I love Marty's playing," the frontman added. "He's actually probably better than I am, but Chris is the best."

Focusing on Menza, Mustaine said, "People compare Shawn [Drover] to Nick Menza. Well, Shawn's been here longer and we had a lot of problems with Nick at the end."

Rounding up the lineup, Dave brought up longtime bassist David Ellefson, saying, "[He's] been around forever. Any of the other bass players we had, I liked them, a lot, but David Ellefson is the bass player for Megadeth."
