Kiko Loureiro with Dave Mustaine As was rumored two weeks ago, Megadeth has officially added guitarist Kiko Loureiro (of Angra) to its lineup. Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine had the following to say:
"I first met Kiko around 8 years ago for a cover shoot for Burrn! magazine. I had no idea who he was, other than the fact he was tremendously talented and that the staff from Burrn! held him in high regard. Since then I've come to see what a guitar virtuoso he is, and I'm deeply encouraged by his depth and talent. Very few Megadeth alumni have had the same feel and ability as Kiko. As Frank Sinatra says, 'the best is yet to come!'"
