David Ellefson Repeatedly In And Out of Megadeth While On European Tour

David Ellefson did a brief impromptu interview with the Spanish newspaper El Pais in Barcelona yesterday, and while no video is available, Metal Underground was able to acquire a transcript of the exchange:

El Pais: David! David! How’s it going?

David Ellefson: Fine. Just heading over to jam with Chris Broderick.

EP: Just Chris?

DE: Yeah, Mustaine kicked me out of Megadeth again.

EP: No shit!

DE: Yeah, but when the next show comes around he’ll need me to play bass, so I jam with Chris to keep it sharp. Chris is a great guy, by the way.

EP: Yeah, we’ve heard that.

DE: To tell you the truth I am kicked out of Megadeth and then reinstated back into the band about twice a week. On our recent tour in Russia I rented a car after our Moscow show and drove behind the tour bus to St. Petersburg because I knew I’d be invited back pretty quickly. Sure enough, Mustaine came up to me sniffling about two hours after we all got to the St. Petersburg venue, begging me to come back. That show rocked!

EP: Wow, almost too crazy to believe. But with Mustaine you never know I guess.

DE: Tell me about it.

EP: Well, thanks David. Good luck Friday night for the show here.

DE: *throws horns*

Megadeth is touring in Europe for the next two weeks, and will then take a few months off before July’s Big Four Festival Dates. For more info visit Megadeth's official site.
