Nick Menza 1964-2016
Nick Menza's story to me is both inspiring and tragic.
His work with Megadeth is very influential in my opinion and
I know it had a deep impact on my playing back when
"Rust In Peace" came out.
Nick started out as the drum tech in the band later to become
the driving force behind the amazing guitar work of Mustaine
and Friedman. That part is inspiring.
Later on, when in need of some medical attention and
procedures, the band did not wait and moved on to hire other
drummers. As much as I understand the nature of the
business, it is still a tragedy.
Fallen Hero, I promise to keep your legacy alive and kicking,
Rest In Peace.
