MEGADOUCHE … Former Megadeth bassist David Ellefson says: “I Let Things Come As They Come”

“I don’t try to plan everything out, and I’ve kind of done most of the big significant things. But just when you think you’ve done it all or seen it all, something else comes along.”
David Ellefson

Metal Sludge — It might be safe to say that David Ellefson is laughing in everyone’s face, as he continues to play with his words and answers, much-like he did his dick in that infamous video he sent to a teenage female fan back in the spring of 2021.

The former Megadeth bassist was fired from the band by the group’s face, voice and principal leader Dave Mustaine just days after questionable sexual allegations surfaced.

In addition to the allegations, there were xxx rated videos that were shared via social media that showed Ellefson partially nude and fully masturbating to completion for the entire world to see.

Ellefson recently did an interview with the “My 3 Questions To” series which was partially transcribed by Blabbermouth.

We have shared some of the Blabbermouth article below.


As part of Jonathan Montenegro‘s “My 3 Questions To” series, former MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson was asked what else is left for him to conquer. He responded (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “You know, I let things come as they come. I don’t try to plan everything out, and I’ve kind of done most of the big significant things. But just when you think you’ve done it all or seen it all, something else comes along. My band DIETH, we’re doing some great stuff right now, playing some cool festivals. And we’re based up in Gdańsk, Poland, so just when I thought I’d been everywhere, I get invited to Gdańsk, Poland. So there’s a good example. So, every day is a good day — good day to get up and play and have fun with your friends.

Shortly before Ellefson was dismissed from MEGADETH, he released a statement on Instagram denying all social media chatter that he “groomed” an underage fan. He also filed a report with the police department in Scottsdale, Arizona alleging unlawful distribution of sexually explicit images of him by unknown offenders.

Dave Mustaine — who formed MEGADETH with Ellefson in 1983 — released a statement on May 24, 2021 announcing the bassist’s departure from the band. In the statement, Dave said: “We do not take this decision lightly. While we do not know every detail of what occurred, with an already strained relationship, what has already been revealed now is enough to make working together impossible moving forward.”
