Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine recently spoke with Patryk Pigeon of MusikUniverse.mu. The pair discussed who will sit behind the kit for Megadeth drummer when Chris Adler is unable to make the shows due to commitments with his other band, Lamb Of God.
Mustaine: “Well, I think Chris would tell you he wants to play every show, so that’s what we’re trying to do. If there are shows that he can’t play, he’s already recommended a protégé of his… not protégé, but somebody who he picked, a handpicked selection. It’s a guy named Tony Laureano, who played with Nile and Dimmu Borgir; he’s one of the top ten extreme-metal drummers. So, yeah, it’ll be equally as exciting. I think Chris brings something a little different than Tony does, but the songs are the songs.“
