Megadeth is perhaps the most overlooked group in Metal today. While founder and frontman Dave Mustaine's previous band, Metallica, has achieved more mainstream success, Megadeth (for the most part) have always stuck to their guns. After almost 30 years, Megadeth continues to wage their war against the politically corrupt and unjust with an arsenal of metalic fury. Firing the percussive artillery for the group is drummer Shawn Drover. Drover has the second longest tenure of any drummer in the band, as apparently he seems to know what works and what doesn't. Speaking to Shawn Drover was rather refreshing, as you can hear in his voice that still enjoys what he does for a living, as he comes across very upbeat and enthusiastic. In our conversation with Shawn, we touched upon many topics, from touring to recording, to what it takes to keep your job in a band that goes through many personnel changes. Hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did conducting it.
