Glen Drover is one of the most respected guitarist in Canada and the Metal world for his work with Megadeth, King Diamond, Testament and his own band Eidolon. More recently he was hired, but declined the job in Geoff Tate’s version of Queensryche (now called Operation Mindcrime). However, there’s more than Metal that makes up Drover’s arsenal. With 70’s Progressive music also a big influence, he has also worked with Saga Keyboardist Jim Gilmour on a a project called “Metalusion” that he is extremely proud of.
He and his brother Shawn Drover started Eidolon back in the 90’s and had a huge cult-following in the Prog-Power Metal scene. It was his work in Eidolon that got the attention of Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine and he was ultimately hired and spent 4 years with the band. Soon after his hiring his brother Shawn also joined Megadeth. In 2008 Glen left the band and recently Shawn Drover has also stepped away from the legendary Thrash Metal juggernaut.
Glen Drover is extremely dedicated to the art of guitar and maintaining it’s traditions. He’s a student of it’s history and has some great perspectives on playing and advice for new students. We also talked to Glen about playing in the mighty Megadeth and how being in a legacy band isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. We also asked him about the latest technology and the state of the guitar universe.
