Megadeth lose half their line-up
A very strange morning for MegadetH fans as news has come through that both drummer Shawn Drover and guitarist Chris Broderick have handed in their notice, reducing the group to founding members, Dave Mustaine and David Ellefson. The real reasons behind the split will no doubt emerge in time but for now Shawn is chalking it up to his own interest in pursuing other music avenues, while Chris has blamed “artistic and musical differences“.
Both members released statements in the past few hours confirming their own departure with no comments appearing from the remaining members.
Megadeth have been in the studio for the past few months working on the follow up to 2013’s Super Collider. It is not known what impact the lad’s departure will have the new record.
In the meantime, as MegadetH fans – Tickets There would like to wish Shawn and Chris well. Ye’ve been brilliant whenever we saw ye live and you’ve helped create some seriously savage Megadeth albums. All the best in the future.
Statements from both members can be found below.
