VueWeekly.com recently conducted an interview with MEGADETH guitarist Glen Drover. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow:

On being in MEGADETH:

"Being in MEGADETH is a great thrill. It's amazing to be in a band that you grew up listening to. Even after all these shows it's not like that effect has worn off yet — it's still exciting."

On the challenges on playing with MEGADETH:

"It's challenging music, and that's what keeps it interesting. You definitely have to be on your toes, but that's part of the fun for me — it gets boring otherwise. All the guitar players are quite different from each other, so it's been quite challenging to try to emulate those solos and feels. I try to keep it pretty faithful to the album: I find most fans want to hear it like that and appreciate when you try to do it that way, and out of respect to them and to all the guitarists who have come before me I try to get as close as humanly possible to the original, although you have to allow your own personality into the music to a point, because otherwise you end up sounding like a robot."

"You're always going to be compared to people from the past, and there are some pretty big guns there — Marty Friedman, Chris Poland, all of them. Some people are really fond of a particular lineup, but I have to say it's been mostly positive. I'm stepping into a lot of big shoes, and for the most part people's reaction has been really great, which I've been really happy about."
