I’m still pinching myself after my interview with Dave Ellefson at Carolina Rebellion 2016. In case you’re clueless, David is the bassist and a founding member of one of the most legendary thrash metal bands of all time: MEGADETH.
I got a chance to talk with him about recording in Nashville, his tattoos (or lack thereof), and Megadeth’s new album, Dystopia (which is epic, by the way). Yeah, David is pretty brilliant. He has a Bachelor’s degree in business marketing, has contributed his writing and playing abilities to: Altitudes and Attitude and Metal Allegiance (the supergroup created by Mark Menghi), Alex Skolnick, Soulfly, F5, and Temple of Brutality. But wait, there’s more! David is president of EMP (Ellefson Music Productions) Label Group and even has his own Coffee brand: Ellefson Coffee Co., which features a roast named “Roast In Peace”.
