"We're not talking," former MEGADETH drummer Jimmy DeGrasso told The Jakarta Post in a brand new interview about his current relationship with MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine.

He added, "Like a marriage, there were ups and downs with Dave, and some of them were great. But, the man had some issues with himself in 2002, and his quitting the band at that time was disappointing for all of us because we had worked really hard for 'Rude Awakening' (2002)."

"I helped Marty Friedman (MEGADETH's lead guitarist from 1990 to 1999) with his solo efforts and [I joined] Dave Ellefson (MEGADETH's bass player from 1985 to 2002) in F5. I still make contact with Al Pitrelli, but we're done talking to Dave."

This Thursday, Jimmy ended his Asia Pacific drum clinic with Sabian in front of around nine hundred Indonesian drum enthusiasts and fans, on the fourth floor of BPPT tower, Central Jakarta.
