Default Re: Nick Menza

Just wanted to say Nick's posthumous autobiography was an awesome (not to mention funny as hell) read.

Really informative on his early life, drum setup and influences, along with a healthy dose of whacked-out conspiracy theories and (in some cases well-deserved) Mustaine bashing.

He actually says at the end of one of the chapters "I hope I die on my drumset" (got his wish unfortunately).

Reading all this, I just have to say: I trust what Mustaine says about any particular individual about as far as I could throw him. He's a well-known asshole who probably couldn't even get along with his buddy Jesus if he was his next-door neighbour. We're talking about a guy who, after finding God and all that crap and supposedly "cleaning up," posted a public video excoriating his guitar tech as a "waste of skin and life" and essentially wished he would die. So, you Megadeth fanboys can believe what you will, but I believe Nick Menza was the second greatest drummer that band had, right behind Gar Samuelsson. Saying "well Dave said he wasn't dependable" means jack shit to me because his mouth is provably hit-or-miss.

I was at that gig! Up on the balcony and I clearly saw him look stage left and mouth the words "You're a fking a$$hole- I hate you" to said guitar tech and acted pissed off the rest of the night.

So yeah I'd believe Nick over Dave any day too!
