Nick Menza (Ex-Megadeth) Omitted From Grammys Televised In Memoriam Segment

The 59th Annual Grammy Award Show was not too kind to the metal community for several reasons, but it gets worse. In fact, Nick Menza (ex-Megadeth) was not featured on the televised In Memoriam segment. He did appear on the Grammys’ online list as well as the official program, but it still sucks they didn’t have him during the broadcast.
