Has Hell frozen over? :blink: Last I heard, Mustaine still totally hated Junior's guts. Oh well, whatever. Welcome back Junior! :banger:

 

MEGADETH Rejoined By Bassist DAVID ELLEFSON - Feb. 8, 2010

 

MEGADETH founder and frontman Dave Mustaine has announced the return of original bassist David Ellefson (1983-2002) to the iconic multi-platinum group. This reunion is appropriately timed to MEGADETH's upcoming historic month-long "Rust In Peace" 20th anniversary tour which launches March 1 in Spokane, WA. At these incredibly special shows, MEGADETH will play their landmark, genre-defining 1990 album "Rust In Peace" in its entirety, in addition to other MEGADETH favorites.

 

"This shows the power of brotherly love and forgiveness," Mustaine says. "David Ellefson belongs in MEGADETH. Next we are going to show you the power of getting your asses kicked...HARD!"

 

David Ellefson concurs: "This is a huge moment for all of us, band and fans alike. It is a great celebration of the music from one of the biggest landmark albums of our career."

 

Ellefson will join Mustaine and MEGADETH band members Shawn Drover (drums) and Chris Broderick (guitar) on tour in support of the group's current CD, "Endgame", which has received some of the highest critical accolades of the band's career.

 

"We'd like to thank James Lomenzo for several years of loyal service on the bass, and wish him the very best," Mustaine adds.

Great news for everyone except JLO(James Lomenzo).

Maybe he's headed for a White Lion reunion(he did say recently that he'd be up for one if it happened).

 

As Keef says has hell froze over? I had read that their hatred towards each other had lessened recently but this still suprises me. This does make it more like Megadeth and not as much a Dave solo thing since Junior was the only surviving member for so long(which means he knew when to keep his mouth shut).

Presumably both felt they could put any personal differences to one side if it meant some extra $$$. Hopefully Mustaine will be true to his word and close his career with a truly KILLER album, though I somehow doubt that will happen....

BIG suprise this one! Hope they put out some good stuff now then ... I thought last year's album was massively overrated. I know I'm in a very tiny minority in that respect though.

Mustaine wasn't the only prick in this band..how about Jeff Young? Anyone ever heard the story of how he was tutoring Jay Reynolds of 'Malice' for the guitar slot and in the process took it himself,whata swell guy.

I agree with that statement. It was about a 7.5/10 disc, which is about the best we could possibly expect from MEGADETH these days IMO.

Good news. Now it's time to call back Marty Friedman and Nick Menza too. :tumbsup:

 

Marty is to busy in Japan and after trying to play with Nick for the 'System Has Failed' disc or tour I don't know if Dave would give another chance.

Marty Friedman is too busy playing music on Japanese game shows and guest appearances on J-Pop star albums. He's the thrash version of Vivian Campbell.

Hm. By the way I listened to the latest Tourniquet album on which Marty plays almost all the solos but to tell the truth there was NOT any moment on the disc that reminded me of his (once?) unique style... :(

    • When it comes down to it, it is the love that matters. I feel the love of Christ in my life. I feel the certainty that He loves me. An atheist says that does not exist, it's imaginary. You even deny love to even be a thing, it's a chemical, it has no meaning. You walk outside, you see trees, you hear birdsong, and it means nothing. I see beauty everywhere I go, the beauty of Christ and His creation. I know beauty can be corrupted. I know evil exists. I know there is death. That is free will, baby. A person chooses to do what they do. Do I care if you believe what I know to be true to my core of being? No, not really. It's like someone saying to me "Def Leppard's Pyromania sucks". I know the music moves me and I love it. With Christ in my life it is that feeling x 1000. If it angers you that I have this love, as it seems to for some here, I can only apologise. It would be like not breathing to deny it. If that hurts your feelings cause once upon a time some church or Christian hurt you, I can just say, don't blame God for the followers. Evil appears in every element. Humans are fallible. Humans do bad shit. I am only responsible for my own soul. Do I want God to come down and intervene in every evil? Hell no. I love that we are free to choose. Forcing someone to love you is not love. Also, how about people be responsible for what they choose to do rather than blame God? You say there is nothing but death and darkness at the end. I know this is just a plane of existence and death has lost its sting. Again, I stress, I don't care if you agree or not. I'm not here to judge you. You are free to choose. I just ask for the same courtesy that you accept I don't share your views and that you can move past your hatred for that choice (not all on this site, just some).
    • Probably the wisest thing said on this thread.  Realistically, we're all in this position.

    • From MelodicRock Classics: MRC008 – HEADWAY (Featuring Steve McClintock) – Headway                                     1CD Limited Edition Unreleased pomp-AOR / melodic rock album from 1980 featuring vocalist and guitarist Steven McClintock. Includes original master tracks plus a couple of live bonus tracks recorded in 1981.    
    • To be honest, it doesn't really concern me if he did or didn't. I put it out there are a kind of olive branch (ie: not everything is completely imaginary and made up) Not many lives were well documented 2000 years ago. Likelihood is that he existed, and had some small amount of notoriety. Was killed and became a Randy Rhodes or Jeff Buckley. A lot more famous after death than when alive. The bibles changed over the years, his exploits became more impressive and eventually  became a demi god. Ironically I love easter and Jesus stories. They make great stories
    • That's really not proven. Opinions split. On the balance of it there is a fair chance he existed but it cannot be proven definitively he did.  His life isn't well documented outside of the bible.  It's long but this is a good video on the topic.     
    • I thank that may be partially due to his delivery style. He'll read part of a quote/sentence/article, make a pithy remark, lather rinse repeat. So it takes him a while to get through things and for the full point to come across. I think if he cut down his breaks by 50% it would be much more digestable. Still, as Lefties go, he's seemingly got more brain power and common sense than many...      
    • New song 'Irreversible'. From Frontiers: 'Irreversible' is a new single from Norway's Big City. The track is from the recording sessions for their most recent studio album, "Testify X", which is out now. Fans of bands such as Firewind, Queensryche, Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall, Europe, Fair Warning, and the like should look forward to being introduced to this exciting band.
