David Ellefson of MEGADETH
Born: November 12, 1964 in Jackson, Minnesota.

David Ellefson is best known as the original bass player for Megadeth, a band he helped found with guitarist/frontman Dave Mustaine in 1983 following Mustaine's dismissal from Metallica. Ellefson, known as "Junior" within the band, remained the only player to perform with Mustaine and Megadeth throughout the band's initial run from 1983 through 2002. When Mustaine resurrected the Megadeth name in 2004, Ellefson was not included. An unsuccessful lawsuit brought by Ellefson against Mustaine over Megadeth rights and royalties only served to heighten tensions between the former band mates. Although Mustaine would announce that the two had eventually settled their personal differences, he did not foresee Ellefson ever rejoining the band, and Megadeth released 3 studio albums with different bassists. In the meantime, Ellefson performed with the groups F5 and Hail and went to work for Peavy Amplifiers. It then came as something of a shock when, in early 2010, it was announced that Ellefson had rejoined Megadeth.
Wrath
Wrath
Real Wave of Thrash Kings from Chicago bringing neck breaking technical thrash. Formed in Chicago in 1982 these maniacs crafted three of the most tech oriented Thrash slabs of insanity known to man period. Hailed as one of the best debuts Fit of Anger (1986) set the bar for the the classic critcally acclaimed Nothing to Fear (1987) for its super catchy yet techy riffs with amazing vocal work, crazy lyrics , cool bass that was played as not only the thunder but also as it's own entity. The third release Insane Society (1990) was the last as they went on a hiatus until now! Hell is Full!!
