I’m truly excited about the two Daves getting back together. I think it will be great for Megadeth fans. Anyone who knows me, knows I love doing all kinds of things musically and other wise so I’m excited for what’s ahead and very grateful for all the great music, fantastic shows and the many friends and fans I’ve come to know over the past four years. Stay tuned and I’ll let you know what’s next when it’s next!”
