Why Megadeth Chose Lamb Of God Drummer Chris Adler

(Classic Rock) Megadeth chose Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler to play on their upcoming album as they wanted to excite fans, according to mainman Dave Mustaine.

And he reports that although he talked with some big-name sticksmen following the departure of Shawn Drover last year, he didn't want to go for a predictable choice.

Mustaine tells Rolling Stone: "Our hopes were to have a permanent drummer but the option to do a record with Chris was really exciting to me. We've looked at a lot of people. I talked with my friend Mike Portnoy, who I think is an amazing talent, and I talked to Dave Lombardo. Mike Mangini's name has come up.

"But there was just something telling me to pause, saying, 'Really think about who you're gonna play with, Mustaine. Make sure you're going to do something that's really going to excite people and that it's not predictable.'" Read more here.
