Confirming weeks of rumors, Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler has been announced as Megadeth's drummer for the band's upcoming album.
Rumors say that Chris Adler and Kiko Loureiro are the newest members of Megadeth.
The Megadeth fan community suffered a loss this week with the death of a prominent member whose passing has been commemorated on the band's official site.
Megadeth fans worried about recent defections from the band ranks can rest easy, according to bassist Dave Ellefson.
Even though a former band member claims that Megadeth is "done," co-founding bassist David Ellefson insists they're carrying on.
Megadeth have soldiered on past plenty of lineup changes in the past, so there's every reason to expect that the recent defections of drummer Shawn Drover and guitarist Chris Broderick will prove to be temporary setbacks for the metal band Dave Mustaine has fronted since 1983.
Sally Estabrook had been missing since Oct. 4.
Dave Mustaine should have a little extra spending money for Christmas this year: His payroll just went down by two Megadeth members.
Its title may have been typically pessimistic, but ‘Youthanasia’ actually coincided with perhaps the most prosperous and stable period in Megadeth’s long career.
Metallica fans have long wondered how differently the band might have proceeded if Dave Mustaine hadn't been fired in 1983.
