Mustaine: 'If I Really Hated David Ellefson, There's No Way He'd Be in Megadeth'
Dave Mustaine has described how he and David Ellefson meded their relationship after a legal fallout in 2005 - and insists he always knew they would make it up in the end. Speaking to the Hangar 19 podcast (via Blabbermouth), Mustaine explained how the legal dispute played out from his perspective: "Dave's a great guy. We had that sad period where we were estranged from one another because we had that famous lawsuit that went down. The funny thing was, I kept saying 'the truth will come out, I love Dave, I don't want this to happen.' It got dismissed, he apologised, I said 'I forgive you,' and it showed that I was telling the truth. Because if I really hated the dude, there's no way he'd be back in Megadeth. He's a little brother, we've been thorough thick and thin together... Besides, he's a kick-a-s bass player." Ellefson re-joined Megadeth in 2010 after a tip-off from drummer Shawn Drover who said in a text message: "If ever there was a time for you and Dave [Mustaine] to talk, now is it." After their reunion rehearsal, Ellefson said it felt like he had never left. Megadeth recently released the album "Super Collider" which landed at number 6 on the Billboard 200 chart. Meanwhile, Mustaine has been criticised for shouting homophobic slurs at a fan during a recent concert.
