In January 2008 Glen Drover left Megadeth to focus on other musical possibilities. His last show with Megadeth was on November 18, 2007 in Brisbane, Australia. Commenting on leaving the band, Drover said “I am aware of the rumours that I left Megadeth to focus on family life and my family life has always been my priority, but, In the end, I was very unhappy with the situation within the band, which magnified me wanting to leave and focus on other musical ventures. I have a lot of great memories and met a ton of great people along the way, both fans and people in the industry.”
