He joined like the majority of the other drummers (excluding Nick Menza and Chuck Behler, who were drum technicians avalible when Mustaine fired the then current drummer). Shawn and his brother, Glen, auditioned after The System Has Failed because Mustaine had stated that Chris Poland and the drummer at the time were just "fillers." Shawn performed on the That One Night: Live in Buenos Aires CD/DVD and the much successful Gigantour. Mustaine was impressed so he kept Shawn. However, Glen wound up leaving for family reasons after the United Abominations tour.
