Best Megadeth Band Membersdragon13304 Megadeth has gone through a lot of line ups. What is your favourite former or current member of the band?
The Top Ten
It seems so obvious that I almost did not vote for him, but he's DAVE. I mean, megadeth without mustaine is a horrible thought that can only be achieved with this band member. It's nice that he has a solid lineup again. With Dave, we can look forward to albums for years to come. Much less with metallica. They should just make one more album then quit forever.
when he was fired out from Metallica, he thought "I just want to be better than them!"
I think he achieved it! - rock2metal
After getting fired from Metallica, he proceeded to make a band better in every way possible. That alone makes him #1.
Well um obviously it’s Dave this is his Band after all. - NinjaturtlesforpresidentV 5 Comments
Kinda stupid list considering that it is mustaine's band, but hiring Marty was certainly the best decision Dave made, I don't think I need to explain why. Listen to his solos on Rust in Peace; without Marty, it would not be the same...
Marty Friedman was the best guitarist Megadeth ever had (and yes that includes Dave too). I also love the fact that the top 4 members of the band are from the best lineup they ever had! Mustaine, Friedman, Junior and Menza!
Broderick is technically a better player, but Friedman is creatively better-quality over quantity any day...
Probably the tastiest soloist in all of thrash metal.V 6 Comments
Only drummer that matters. Listen to the fills in 'family tree' off of youthanasia or anything else for that matter. Also cam up with many song and album ideas.
RIP Nick, the best drummer this band ever had. - Nintendonix
One of my favourite drummers. And as a straight dude, he's pretty hot
R.I.P. I miss him:(V 5 Comments
This guy is awesome! This list is good, next to Dave Mustaine and Marty, he is the best - rock2metal
Great bass player and great backing vocalist
He's stable, decent musician, and survived the hurricane of DAVE MUSTAINE!
Great bassist! He's really funny and cool too!
Oh please, listen to the solo of cold sweat, would friedman be able to do that? Look friedman and broderick up on YouTube betcha can't play this and you'll see how talented broderick is
Watch his 'betcha can't do this' video on YouTube, I seriously doubt anyone but him can do it! Astonishing double handed sweep picking
Chris Poland > Chris Broderick
Does anybody remember what he did on peace sells? apparently not because he is an absolute legend
The best Megadeth's drummer.
Best megadeth drummer period... Saw him twice on the peace sells tour at the agora ballroom in west Hartford ct unbelievable
Kiko is the best guitar player ever.
Menza was great and so was Shawn Drover. But Jimmy is the best Megadeth drummer ever. She wolf, Trust, Dread and the Fugitive mind! A legend
Incredible drummer. See his live performance on Rude Awakening and drum solo on She-Wolf
Lol, this is their fictional mascot so why is he even on the list? He's not even real!
Deserves top 5 alongside mustaine & friedman...
I think this is the best band member :)
With no doubt, he is the only one that never change his style and fans are never disappointed with him
Surprised that I didn't see him on this list. His solos on So Far, So Good... So What blew my mind when I first heard them. Had a very limited time to shine but he is an amazing guitarist. Easily my favorite Megadeth alumni.
Really underrated guitarist plays some good solos such as the one in dread and the fugitive mind
Obviously one of the greatest guitarist. His work with Mustaine is is just an epic. Great contribution in album United Abominations. The best example of solo is The Washington is Next. With the lot of power shredding just an awesome Masterpiece.
He is an amazing drummer
