Over the weekend, the metal scene lost another great one. Nick Menza, ex-drummer of Megadeth, passed away at the age of 51. He collapsed on stage during a performance with his band OHM at a Los Angeles nightclub when he suffered a heart attack.
Albany-based radio station Q103 iterviewed Dave Mustaine prior to Megadeth’s headlining performance at the Rock N’ Derby festival in Scaghticoke, NY when he stated that a benefit show for Nick Menza’s family was in the works. According the interview, he’s hoping to gather ex-Megadeth members so that we can remember Nick Menza for the performer that he was. More details should be coming soon.
