Megadeth's Dave Mustaine Slammed By Nick Menza
"To: Dave Mustaine in regards to my publishing royalties," posted Menza on his social media sites. "I find it very unprofessional that you conduct business like a child, quit playing games! be a man and stop taking food from my kids mouths. It's my earned money, Not yours. quit ripping me off. WTF?"
At press time, there had been no reaction from Mustaine over his former drummer's remarks. Menza's comments are the second time recently he has chastised Mustaine publicly over his business practices: while revealing that a reunion of the band's classic 1990s lineup fell apart during negotiations when they were looking for a new drummer, he later shared the details of a contract offer put on the table by Mustaine.
Menza says Megadeth requested he record the group's 15th album without payment, with his earnings to be made from touring. "As soon as I got home and it was time to sit down and negotiate my terms in writing, I was offered a very unfair deal that was so wrong," revealed Menza. "They didn't feel I was worth anything to the band. Dave blocked my emails, changed his number and then, apparently, Ron Laffitte was fired as the band's manager. Here is one of my favorite bands and a huge part of my life achievements and I was shut out for wanting a fair deal." Read more here.
