Ellefson rejoins Megadeth

How long will this last?

MEGADETH founder and frontman Dave Mustaine has announced the return of original bassist David Ellefson (1983-2002) to the iconic multi-platinum group. This reunion is appropriately timed to MEGADETH's upcoming historic month-long "Rust In Peace" 20th anniversary tour which launches March 1 in Spokane, WA. At these incredibly special shows, MEGADETH will play their landmark, genre-defining 1990 album "Rust In Peace" in its entirety, in addition to other MEGADETH favorites.

"This shows the power of brotherly love and forgiveness," Mustaine says. "David Ellefson belongs in MEGADETH. Next we are going to show you the power of getting your asses kicked...HARD!"

David Ellefson concurs: "This is a huge moment for all of us, band and fans alike. It is a great celebration of the music from one of the biggest landmark albums of our career."

Ellefson will join Mustaine and MEGADETH band members Shawn Drover (drums) and Chris Broderick (guitar) on tour in support of the group's current CD, "Endgame", which has received some of the highest critical accolades of the band's career.

"We'd like to thank James Lomenzo for several years of loyal service on the bass, and wish him the very best," Mustaine adds.

In 2004, Ellefson filed suit against Mustaine claiming, among other things, breach of fiduciary obligation, libel and emotional distress.

Speaking to Guitar World for the magazine's December 2009 issue, Mustaine stated about his current relationship with Ellefson, "Dave sued me for 18-and-a-half million dollars. And he lost. That had to have hurt. And the fans — a lot of them turned on him. That had to have hurt. He lost one of his oldest friends. That had to have hurt. There probably were a lot of changes, financial and otherwise, he had to make in his life after MEGADETH. That had to have hurt, too. And I'm not the kind of guy to sit back and watch that happen to somebody who, at one point, I loved. So I met with Dave a while ago and we had dinner, and he said, 'You know, [suing you] was the stupidest thing I've ever done. I wish I never did it.' So I forgave him. Bottom line for me is there's this one little thing I'll always be curious about: I just keep thinking, if he had won the lawsuit, what would he have done? Would he have taken 18-and-a-half million dollars from me? Or would he have just said, 'You know what? I was just trying to prove a point. Let's get back together and you behave yourself.'"

I figured this would happen sooner or later. Mustaine sure talked a lot of shit about Ellefson while he was gone though. :-)

Mustaine is a complete douche. He was on That Metal Show (Speaking of douche's) and was his typical douche douchiness ass master. Anyone that would want to be a band member with douchecastle needs to get their head examined and join Metallicock.

Fuck all you naysayers. Megadeth owns it and fucking brings it!!! My lovely Evil Red will back me up on that! :devildoll

I'm seriously thinking about buying tickets to the Spokane show and flying over there to see it!!! Rust in Peace played in it's entirety? Fuck yeah!!! :metalhead

If we do go, that will be the third one in a year! We saw Judas Priest play British Steel and Motley Crue play Dr. Feelgood. Both shows were amazing! Ron and I were talking before the Elton John show the other night about what complete bands/albums we would like to see played. Megadeth's Rust in Peace was one of them.

sooo....I just text msgd your phone with the details. I TOLD my boss I was leaving early Monday, March 1 around 11 a.m. We're flying to Spokaine around 2 p.m., and flying back the next day. Got our tix ordered today, want me to order yours? I'm doing travel arrangements tomorrow. Hop on board!

You only live once. Megadeth performing the entire "Rust in Peace" album on it's 20th Anniversary. The only thing that would make it better would be Marty Friedman and Nick Menza coming along for the ride, but....

Megadeth is an ever-changing entity, but you know we won't be disappointed! We haven't been disappointed yet!
