MEGADETH have parted ways with their most acclaimed bassist David Ellefson. Obviously there is a lot to unpack here from the moral standpoint of what happened (even if it wasn’t grooming, which depends on whose word you take at face value…edging the age of consent and lying to your wife is fucked up) to other people saying Mustaine is also likely glad to get someone else who he can pay less as well. Any way you slice it amounts to a lousy shit pile of a stain on the legacy of the remaining classic member’s bond. Still, I hope if Ellefson truly does try to aspire to Christian values that David will work towards making amends and focusing on his family.
