Glen Drover rules out return to Megadeth

Glen Drover has ruled out a return to Megadeth after his replacement Chris Broderick quit earlier this week.

Guitarist Broderick announced his departure hours after Glen’s brother, drummer Shawn, did the same – leaving Dave Mustaine and David Ellefson the only current members of the thrash band.

Glen left in 2007, but he’s been asked online by fans whether it’s time to go back. He says via Facebook: “I’m very sorry, but that will never happen. There is no chance I would ever do that. Thanks a ton for all your awesome support; it was fun while I was there, playing all those cool shows and meeting a lot of you.”

He adds that he’s focusing on “other cool things coming up.”

Meanwhile, the supergroup made up of ex-Megadeth members Chris Poland, James LoMenzo and Nick Menza are planning to reveal their first music next month. The unnamed band say they have six “heavy, original” songs prepared.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
