History

Megadeth (2004-2008)

Drover recorded his solo at home in Canada, and sent the music file to the band.

In January 2008 Glen Drover left Megadeth to focus on family life and the constant touring was starting to have a negative effect on him, his last show with them was on November 18, 2007 in Brisbane, Australiamarker. Commenting on leaving the band, Drover said "I am aware of the rumors that I left Megadeth to focus on family life and My family life has always been my priority. In the end, I was unhappy with the situation, which magnified me wanting to spend more time with my family and realizing that it's time for me to move on to the next chapter in my musical career, I have a lot of great memories and met a ton of great people along the way, both fans and people in the industry." Glen is now collaborating with Stephan Forte of the band Adagio on a 10 track instrumental CD.

Testament

On the 22 Oct 2008 Testament announced that they have recruited guitarist Glen Drover to fill in on their upcoming Mexicanmarker tour dates with Judas Priest, Due to Alex Skolnick's prior commitment to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
