Mike in MEGADETH: After the CBS endeavors Mike kept busy playing in various blues and rock clubs in the Southern California beach area. Dave Mustaine the leader of Megadeth had heard about Mike through Megadeths manager Jay Jones, because he was looking for another lead guitarist (Chris Poland had just left due to personal reasons). Daves reaction to Mikes playing was (It was like) blowing the top of my head off. Mike was given the lead guitarist spot in Megadeth. Within 2 months of intense rehearsals Mike and his new band Megadeth were off on the bands first U.S. tour KILLINGS MY BUSINESS TOUR. The tour took them through over 40 cities. Co-headlining with them was ANTHRAX, EXODOUS, and SLAYER. After the 2nd branch of the tour, friction between Mike and Mustaine escalated to the point of Mike leaving the band. The Megadeth affiliation lasted under a year. Needing a break from all the touring and endless rehearsals Mike began an intense wood shedding and writing period. At the time Mike wrote over 80 original songs, in somewhat the same vain of his Megadeth experience. He also returned to doing recording sessions and sound tracks, the most recent sound track was in Tia Carreras Hostile Intensions, a Budwieser Light commercial, and a Paul Rodriguez TV special. Mike even has performed at the Los Angeles Greek Theatre and at the Los Angeles Coliseum with his own band. THE PRESENT: The Original songs Mike has written took years to develop and finding the right musicians to interpret them, just as long. Finally through a friend of Mikes, (Steve Medrano (RIP)), Mike has found the right combination. Enter, Jon Escobedo on Bass, Richard Schroeder on vocals, Rueben Martinez on 2nd guitar and Angel Lujan on drums forming the "MIKE ALBERT PROJECT". They have currently released a new album called "Afterlife" available online.
