While preparing songs for a potential new record, Dave Mustaine states that Megadeth has parted ways with bassist Jimmy MacDonough and hired James LoMenzo on Feb. 10, 2006.

“I want to thank Jimmy for everything and wish him the best in his future endeavors. He is knowledgable, and a good enough bassist to run his own outfit and I look forward to what he does musically.”

Mustaine also mentions, “It was recommeded I check out James LoMenzo by a friend, because I was uncertain which direction I wanted to take with the bassist, prior to starting the next record and everything just clicked.”

LoMenzo (formerly with White Lion, Black Label Society, David Lee Roth, etc.) will play the Dubai Desert Rock Festival with Megadeth on March 16th, 2006.
