New Megadeth Drummer Feels At Home With The Group.


(Classic Rock) New Megadeth drummer Dirk Verbeuren says he already feels "at home" in Megadeth. The sticksman was recently confirmed as a full-time member of the band after touring with them in place of Chris Adler - with the Lamb Of God man instrumental in getting Verbeuren behind the kit with Dave Mustaine and co.

Speaking of his arrival in the Megadeth camp, Verbeuren tells Metal Messiah Radio: "It was very smooth. The guys are really cool, awesome, nice people - very welcoming. After one day, I sat down with Dave Mustaine and he was very open about everything.

"It's been a month now that I've been on the road with them, and it's been nothing but great. I think it's all about how you deal with a situation like that.

"I've been in bands for 25 years, so I kind of know how it works, and I know what my place is, so I try to do what people expect of me, and if they ask me for my opinion, I'll give it. And they do. Dave is always asking, 'What do you think of this song? Should we play this one?' So it makes me feel at home." Read more and watch the full interview here.
