David Ellefson of Megadeth recently spent some time with Hangar 19 and Cutter to discuss his life and career with the band.
Ellefson discusses his exit from the band, the existence of Megadeth during the period that he was not in the group and what led to his eventual return to the band.
He describes the “season of his life” outside of Megadeth in which he was able to explore different things for the first time.
Challenges? Ellefson points out that “the ’90s weren’t very friendly to thrash metal,” which forced Megadeth to evolve and ultimately, played a large part in helping the band grow musically to where they are today.
All seems to be just fine these days and you’ll hear plenty about the entire history and where things are now in our interview.
