It is a strange day when Megadeth is the subject of a post on ONTD.

Strangeness of this happenstance aside, it is really bad news for Megadeth fans. Though I am a long fan of the band, it's hardly a secret that Dave Mustaine is an epic asshole. Broderick and Drover seemed like a good fit--fantastic players, able to add ferocity to Mustaine's songs, and apparently able to let his bullshit roll off themselves without sticking. Technically, the band with them was probably the best lineup Megadeth has ever had. Megadeth's "return to form" with Endgame and United Abominations was largely due to their playing. I am sure that there are other players who could step in and maintain that level of musicianship, but how many have the skill, and the willingness to work with Dave?
