Megadeth R.I.P.
Dave Mustaine, founder, vocalist and lead guitarist of metal pioneers Megadeth announced today that due to a serious injury he will depart from Megadeth therefore disbanding the group after nearly 20 years together. �During the first week of January 2002�I suffered an injury that caused severe nerve damage to my left arm and hand,� said Mustaine in a statement. Doctors told him it will take a year to reach full recovery. �In the meantime,� continues Mustaine, �I will take this opportunity to reappraise my career and my future. For the time being I have decided to exit Megadeth, and explore other areas of the music business where I might make a contribution without being able to play my instrument.� �I have had a terrific time singing and playing for you while I was in Megadeth,� reads Dave Mustaine�s statement. �And I can never thank you, our fans past and present, enough for your loyalty and affection over the years.� The announcement comes one week before the release of Megadeth's live DVD titled "Rude Awakening."
