Following up on Churman's journey, she and Mustaine appeared together on a Vegas talk show to share their story with a wider audience (watch above).
After months of wondering how it would go over, it can now be said that Dave Mustaine's appearance with the San Diego Symphony was a success.

For over 100 years, the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) hosts a gathering like no other. A tremendous amount of talented and influential individuals from all corners of the music industry got together to share ideas, set up merch booths and witness special performances from legendary artists. Each NAMM event attracts many elite musicians to the convention, and although NAMM's Winter 2014 showcase was a success, former Megadeth drummer Nick Menza had an unpleasant run-in with ex-bandmate Dave Mustaine.
