Late Megadeth Star Nick Menza Was Reluctant To Do Memoir

Nick Menza

(TeamRock Radio) The co-author of Megalife: Nick Menza The Book says the late Megadeth drummer was initially reluctant to write his memoir as he didn't think his life was exciting enough.

J Marshall Craig is currently putting the finishing touches on the publication about the life of the former Megadeth sticksman, who died of natural causes in May while he was performing with his band Ohm. He was 51.

And the author reports that he, along with Menza's family, eventually managed to persuade the drummer that he did have a story to tell. Craig exclusively tells TeamRock: "Nick was very reluctant to do a memoir, as he believed he didn't have an exciting-enough life to warrant an entire book.

"Finally, back in 2012, I convinced him that he had a great story to tell - and also, the mother of his children was a big fan of the book I wrote with Eric Burdon, Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood, so she helped convince him that if anybody should write his story, it would be me." Read more here.
