When asked by 80s Y Mas about the band's plans in the next five or 10 year, the singer/guitarist expressed a rather positive stance about the presence, but also remembered the grim days of the past decade. "There was a period about ten years ago when I was really unhappy with the way things were going in the music business and with Megadeth in general," he confessed. "And there was a lot of internal turmoil with the band."
Dave even admitted considering to end the band to a certain extent. "A lot of times, I would ask myself 'Is this really what I wanna do with the rest of my life?' And once we had the breakup after I my arm got injured and I re-evaluated my career, it changed things, and meeting up with Shawn [Drover] and Chris [Broderick] really made me, I believe, a much more grateful player.
"So I think right now the best is yet to come for us," the frontman concluded. "We really have gotten a lot better in the last, probably, two years even. We're playing better now than, I think, we've ever played."
