Take Trujillo from Metallica. He an Kiko would jam well together. Trujillo is tired of being the best guitarist in his band.

Yeah, I could rock her
Like a doctor
If I found a way to get her off first
I could own her, the crazy loner,
If I found my way to Minnesoter.
In a slumber, I'm sawing lumber
I saw my baby dance a Latin number
with her shirt off
Man her skin's soft
But in a mood she'd rather
If I jerked off.

Hire Juan Crousier for the live shows (which would drive Mustaine nuts with him literally dancing all over the stage)!

Two things.

1: holy shiat, Dave Mustaine looks James Dean/Kris Kristofferson/Jack Palance level cool there.

2: For Mustaine's sake just from a conscience standpoint, I sure do hope he somehow knows for sure that the person in the video was underage. I hope Mustaine knows what he is doing here.

FTFA: Ellefson has strenuously denied anonymous accusations that his play parter in the video was underage, and he is reportedly seeking to press 'revenge porn' charges against the individual who alleged illegally uploaded the videos in question.

As much as I like Megadeth, I try not to keep tabs too much on the public aspects of people's personal lives but I guess there has been some bad blood brewing for a while according to the article. Even with that said, if Ellefson is innocent here and this was the tipping point I would feel pretty terrible over being abandoned like that.

I don't know, I followed the links (this is the first time I'm hearing about this) and apparently the woman has come forward and said she wasn't underage, everything was consensual, she initiated with him, and he didn't do anything wrong at all.

Seems to me like he's getting screwed over for no good reason.

[Youtube-video https://www.youtube.com/embed/3t52zgOW​NUo]


True, but Megadeth does need one.  The trend now is to tune down and/or use baritone guitars (as I myself do), but early thrashers didn't normally do it, and it leaves more room in the mix for bass. Peace Sells was inspiring to me as a young bass player, they need someone for at least that tune, heh!  Sad to see Ellefson ended up in this situation, the chemistry of The Daves really made Megadeth.  I saw them a few times in the Rust In Peace era and they were phemomenal.  I vote Newsted if he will do it, it requires a pick player and that is his specialty.  Dan Lilker would be an intersting choice.

Newsted is done with hard rock/metal. Just watched a recent interview with him- he had multiple surgeries on his neck and shoulders and got addicted to Vicodin. At this point, just strumming an acoustic is his jam. Slamming through 2+'hours of highly technical speed metal is just not in his wheelhouse anymore.

Right, I have read such.  Just wishful thinking, he seems the most obvious choice.  He might surprise us, you never know!  He messed up his shoulder catching a falling Ampeg head at his home studio and that took him out for a long time.  I caught a pick from him on the black album tour (also a pick and sweatband from Mustaine. Yes, that is a vintage rotten.com mousepad).

You're right. I probably should've added that caveat to my original response. As someone else pointed out, the woman in question has come forward and stated that she's not underage and that it was consensual. Most likely this is just more Mustaine being a raging douchebag and using this as an excuse to boot Ellefson due to whatever other issues they're having.

i've been kicked out of bands for less.
one time the other three members came to me and said, "we all went to art school for design soooo...."
csb, i know, but it's a band. not like Megadeth is the Beatles or something.

Ehhhh... I think they are still bros and Mustaine privately give zero farks about Ellefson's extracurdickular activities, but he is marketing new music in a cancel culture environment, so he has to do this.  I'd bet Jr. is still getting paid, no such thing as bad publicity and all.

I doubt he has more money than Mustaine, who has owned publishing rights to Megadeth's catalog going back to the mid 80s.

Suicidal and Infectious couldn't have paid THAT well...and we all know how generous Sharon Osbourne is to back line guys in the band.

Don't forget about that cool million Lar$ forked over to Bobbie to join the band. If he's anything like Newsted, he invested that shiat that afternoon and it has been maturing for years.

I don't think anyone's ever accused Dave Mustaine of being a nice, or even level-headed, guy. The "existing problems" between him and Ellefson could be as simple as Ellefson making a snarky comment about religion or being supportive of LBGTQ rights (I dunno if I'd go as far as homophobic but Mustaine's on record a few times with the "DERP! God sed one man and one woman!" line). Sure, it's possible everyone's still all hunky-dory behind the scenes but I wouldn't be surprised at all if Mustaine just used this as an excuse because of whatever petty BS he's got against Ellefson. The man's basically one "Dead or in jail!" from going full Nugent and you should never go full Nugent

/Full disclosure: I love Megadeth and have always considered them far superior, on a technical level, to most other bands of the same genre. Mustaine OTOH...

Dave is certainly a certified douchebag!  Ellefson is a Lutheran minister so they may actually see (or have seen) eye to eye on the religion thing.
