David Ellefson Reveals How Dave Mustaine Reacts His Fired from METALLICA

David Ellefson reveals how Dave Mustaine react fired from the METALLICA band. MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson talked about his relationship with Dave Mustaine over the past nearly four decades.

METALLICA and Dave Mustaine separated in 1983. Also, in this same year, Dave Mustaine founded the MEGADETH band. And, METALLICA released their first studio album “Kill ‘Em All” in 83. From this album “No Life ‘Til Leather” demo song also featured Dave Mustaine played with few more song. But due to some crisis with him, METALLICA fired Mustaine.

Now, MEGADETH out a new book titled “Rust in Peace: The Inside Story of the Megadeth Masterpiece” you can also found some insight in this book. Check this book here.

During the interview with Metal Journal’s YouTube channel, David Ellefson also reveals how Dave Mustaine reacts to this situation:

“Well, it’s changed… When we first started, Dave wrote everything. We sat in a room, we all kind of spitballed and talked about things, especially when Greg Handevidt was playing guitar. But Dave very much wanted to be in charge. And you could tell a lot of that was based on what happened with Metallica [from which he was fired in 1983].

Even in his book, he talked about that; he said he realized his name wasn’t on the Metallica contract, and then they booted him out of the band. And he said, ‘Never again would I not pay attention.’ So, to his credit, he’s definitely paid attention – I’ve gotta give him credit for that.

I do the same thing in the Ellefson band; it’s my name on the door, so I’ve gotta really pay attention, and the buck stops with me. And I think Dave feels that way with Megadeth; the buck stops with him.”

David Ellefson also added:

“I think that’s the thing that fans respect about Dave; they respect his authenticity and his uncompromising methods. And that’s a hallmark of Megadeth, and Dave certainly gets the credit for that.”
