Ex-MEGADETH Bassist LOMENZO: 'I'm Truly Excited About The Two DAVES Getting Back Together'

Former MEGADETH bassist James Lomenzo has issued the following statement regarding his departure from the band:

"My heart is full with your kindness and well wishes. This is the richest part of my years with the mighty MEGADETH.

"I'm truly excited about the two Daves [guitarist/vocalist Dave Mustaine and returning bassist Dave Ellefson] getting back together. I think it will be great for MEGADETH fans.

"Anyone who knows me knows I love doing all kinds of things musically and otherwise, so I'm excited for what's ahead and very grateful for all the great music, fantastic shows and the many friends and fans I've come to know over the past four years.

"Stay tuned and I'll let you know what's next when it's next!"

Lomenzo, who previously played with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and WHITE LION, joined MEGADETH in February 2006 following the departure of James MacDonough (ex-ICED EARTH).
