Dave Mustaine: There Are Only 3 Guitarists in Megadeth History Who REALLY Matter

Dave Mustaine recently said that although he greatly respects every single musician who's been in the Megadeth fold, there are essentially just three guitar players that really, really matter. The frontman said on The Jasta Show:


“When I first hired Jeff Young [in 1987] to replace Chris Poland, did I think that Jeff could replace Chris? No.

“Did I think that Jeff was good enough player to be in Megadeth? Yes. The last time that I heard anything that he had done – still a terrific guitar player.

“But you compare Marty [Friedman] and Kiko [Loureiro]… There really are only three guitar players the fans identify with: Chris Poland, Marty Friedman, and Kiko. That’s it.

“I personally liked Glen Drover [played in Megadeth between 2004 and 2008] a lot, I thought that he was really cool.

“The other guys, they all were the part of the alumni and I love and respect everything that they did for us.

“Now we’re not as close – some of the other guys and I are – but I think that’s something that just happens if the band has been operating this long. 35 years is a long time.”
