Generally speaking the drum and guitar talent in these bands is completely wasted.

Megadeth I've seen once. Love the band, but their show was incredibly boring. Mostly because they don't actually have one. I'm giving them another chance in February at a better venue. If they're dull again then I won't see them anymore.
In the past, Megadeth has put on a much better show for Gigantour than their typical tour stop. In fact, last year's Gigantour was so cool (read pyro) that their regular tour stop became relatively bland since they just played in front of a Megadeth backdrop.
Jaco died for our sins so that modern bass players could be free to play more and be heard.
