Megadeth are now down two members with guitarist Chris Broderick announcing his departure shortly after drummer Shawn Drover did the same. Here’s what Broderick said of his exit:
“Due to artistic and musical differences, it is with great reluctance that I announce my departure from Megadeth to pursue my own musical direction. I want all of you to know how much I appreciate the amount that you the fans have accepted and respected me as a member of Megadeth for the last seven years, but it is time for me to move on. I wish Dave and everyone in Megadeth all the best. I am working on a few things of my own and hope that when they come out, you will all dig it.
The remaining band members, vocalist/guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist/vocalist Dave Ellefson, have yet to comment on the situation.
