Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine was clearly hoping his band's ninth Grammy nomination since 1990 -- for the song 'Sudden Death' -- would finally net him a guilded gramophone statuette. That honor, of course, went to Iron Maiden for 'El Dorado.'
But Mustaine and his bandmates still have plenty to be excited about. Megadeth will take part in the first US Big Four concert April 24 in Indio, Calif., along the other three '80s thrash titans -- Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax. There are also Sonisphere Big Four shows booked in July in Knebworth, England and Amneville, France.
