In today’s podcast we get up-to-speed with one of the founders of thrash, Megadeth bassist David Ellefson.
As founding member of US rockers Megadeth, David Ellefson needs little introduction as one of the founders of thrash. Having appeared on countless Megadeth releases including the bands 1985 debut, Killing is My Business… And Business is Good!, right through to 2002’s Rude Awakening, Ellefson is rightly regarded as a pioneer of thrash metal bass playing. Back with a new album, Dystopia – Ellefson’s punchy bass tone and his ridiculous picking-hand chops are sounding better than ever.
As you can probably tell... I'm so excited to release this to you! Give it a listen and then, and if you’re up for it, leave the show a review in iTunes…
… It costs nothing, and it’d mean the world to me because it helps other bass players who are interested in listening and learning from some of the best players in the world to find the show and start making progress.
