AUFGRUND EINER NERVEINKLEMMUNG IN DAVE MUSTAINES ARM UND SEINER DARAUS RESULTIERENDEN ENTSCHEIDUNG DIE BAND ZU VERLASSEN; ENTSCHIEDEN SICH MEGADETH FÜR EINE VORLÄUFIGE AUFLÖSUNG.
A statement from Dave Mustaine:
During the first week of January 2002, while MEGADETH was on hiatus, in Texas, I suffered an injury that caused severe nerve damage to my left arm and hand.
It was diagnosed as Radial Neuropathy - specifically, a "compressed radial nerve."
My doctors tell me it will take about a year to make as complete a recovery as I can, and even then, we don't know how complete that is going to be.
I am working hard with a great team of doctors and physical therapists daily, and God willing, someday I hope to play guitar again.
In the meantime, while I work on rebuilding my arm, I will take this opportunity to reappraise my career and my future.
For the time being I have decided to exit MEGADETH, and explore other areas of the music business where I might make a contribution without being able to play my instrument.
I have had a terrific time singing and playing for you while I was in MEGADETH.
I am truly grateful for all of the numerous Gold, Platinum, and Multi-Platinum Records I have been awarded, as well as the many International Record Awards.
And I can never thank you, our fans past and present, enough for your loyalty and affection over the years.
My immediate goals now are to do what I can to make something good come out of this terrible situation.
First and foremost, I want to use this opportunity to devote more time, energy and attention to my wife Pam and my two children, Justis and Electra.
Pam has done a wonderful job carrying the load while I was a long-distance husband and father in the studio or criss-crossing the world on tour,
but in terms of being a Gold or Platinum parent, I have a long way to go, and I'm eager to get started.
In closing I would like to depart with the beautiful French words I wrote on the record Youthanasia:
"A tout le monde, a tous mes amis, Je vous aime, Je dois partir."
(To all the world, to all my friends. I love you, I have to leave)
