David Ellefson, Co-Founder and bassist of Megadeth and Nick Menza, former MEGADETH drummer, will take part in The Rock N Roll Autograph Show, set to take place September 13-15 at The Westin Los Angeles Airport. They will be appearing on Sunday afternoon, from approximately 1-5 pm. Menza will be signing copies of his new book, “Nick Menza: Megalife.” This is the first appearance the two have done together in many years.
Said Menza: “I’m very honored to be part of this major event, as well as seeing my good friend David Ellefson whom I have not talked to in years. I will be on sight for from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, September 15 signing posters for my upcoming book release. Stay tuned for the unveiling of the working title and cover art. Come on out; it’s for a great cause!”
Menza has been writing, recording and producing constantly but only releasing sporadic singles for years. That will all change when he opens the floodgates with the upcoming release of his memoir, “Nick Menza: Megalife”, by acclaimed writer J. Marshall Craig. “MEGADETH was a big part of my story,” Menza says, “but it was just one part. Jeff [Craig] has got me to talk about it all!”
Menza is currently negotiating a publishing deal for the book, which was written over the past 18 months. It features rare and never-before-seen photos of Menza with every band he’s ever been in, including, of course, MEGADETH. “It’s a memoir of music,” writer Craig says. “But a lot more. It’s a book about chasing the ultimate gig, the ultimate drum setup, the ultimate sound and, it will come as no surprise to Nick’s fans, the ultimate aliens, government conspiracies and anything else his muse sees fit to lay across his path.”
“Nick Menza: Megalife” is due in stores, in Kindle and eBook versions, in late 2013. See the article in Blabbermouth.
