Megadeth's Dave Mustaine blasts 'gossip' web sites for 'twisting' his words about David Ellefson


Megadeth's Dave Mustaine was recently interviewed by Ticketmaster, you can read some excerpts below.


About what it means to have a longtime collaborator like bassist David Ellefson back in the band after so many lineup changes. He responded: "David and I have been friends for a long time, even during the lawsuit. I had made it clear that I loved him, and I loved his family. I said that the truth would come out and that it was very unfortunate. The lawsuit was dismissed, I forgave him, and we got back in business again. It's been fun ever since."

He continued: "There's a couple web sites out there that don't like me and they're trying to twist some of my words around about David Ellefson being in the band or not being in the band, or being a founding member or not being a founding member. And that shit don't matter, because it's a gossip web site. The truth is, me and Dave are partners, we make good music together, he's in Megadeth, we're going on tour. Hopefully people will know when they see him on stage and not think he's somebody else. [Laughs]"
