MEGADETH's DROVER Brothers Prepare For DESERT ROCK Festival

MEGADETH guitarist Glen Drover and his brother (who also happens to be MEGADETH's drummer) Shawn Drover have posted separate messages on the band's official forum in preparation for the group's March 16 appearance at the Desert Rock 2006 festival in Dubai, United Arab Emirates:

Glen Drover: "Just a little letter to say hello and to let you all know that all is going very well with our new bass player, James [Lomenzo, ex-BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, WHITE LION]. James has a ton of experience from playing with a lot of great bands through the years and it really does show. He's a great guy and a great player. You will all notice how well he fits in with us, soon enough! Aside from that, I am going through my daily routine of getting into shape for the Dubai show. Can't wait for this one!!!!!"

Shawn Drover: "Since I have been in this band, I don't believe that all four bandmembers have posted within a 24-hour period of time. So with my post, now we have.

"The Dubai show is now quickly approaching, and all of us are real excited about it. I chimed into the 10-day forcast in Dubai, which basically calls for SUNNY skies and a lovely temperature average between 80-85 degrees. You know I will be hanging poolside with my iPod cranked up to 11 (these go to eleven!!!). Man, I hope there is a Starbucks nearby!!!!! Oh ya, and the show will kick ass as well!!!!!!

"Life does NOT suck!!"
