Why Marty Friedman Refused To Reunite With Megadeth

(Classic Rock) Former Rust in Peace era Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman refused to return to the band because he didn't want to damage the legacy he'd left from his first stint.

The possibility of a reunion was raised in 2014 after Chris Broderick and Shawn Drover left Dave Mustaine's outfit, when the leader considered the attractions of bringing back the man who'd helped make breakthrough album Rust In Peace in 1990 and follow-up Countdown To Extinction in 1992.

But Friedman, who played with Megadeth from 1990 until 2000, tells the LA Weekly: "I think anyone that has something as good as Rust In Peace in their history doesn't want to revisit it, unless you're going to top it.

"I didn't see any reason to mess with that. I didn't see a reunion being what it could be and what the fans deserved. If I were to revisit that, there would have to be a reason for me to do that beyond, 'Let's go back and do it again.' That's not a good enough reason." Read more here.
