Former Megadeth drummer Nick Menza says while at NAMM, he tried to reconnect with Dave Mustaine, but didn’t get very far.
Attending this week’s convention in Anaheim, California, Menza claims he approached Mustaine only to be blown off and told to “go away.”
Menza, a member of the band from 1989 to 1998, writes on Facebook:
“I had a blast at NAMM hanging with fans and old friends I also made a major mistake for trying to saying hello to Dave Mustaine at the Dean booth, [which] he totally blew me off and wouldn’t even look at me then had his hired goons / bodyguard tell me go away, pretty lame! I’m over it and life goes on!!!”
So over it you had to put dude on blast in an awkwardly worded Facebook post?
“I don’t hate Dave nor was I trying to get back in the band. [I just wanted to say a] friendly hello, that’s all. Nothing more nothing less! I have so many other things going on right now that even if Dave asked me back in the band, I would have to turn down the offer.”
