Megadeth Bassist Dave Ellefson to Other Bands: Tour With Us and Good Things Will Happen
When Loudwire caught up with Ellefson recently and asked him about touring with Mr. Zombie, the Megadeth bassist responded, “It’s interesting because years ago, White Zombie was actually the opening band – it was White Zombie, Pantera and Megadeth. And then Pantera obviously got huge, Rob went off solo and Rob’s huge.” Interestingly, Zombie himself told us that Megadeth and Pantera would butt heads on that trek.
Ellefson went on to say, “We seem to have this way about the bands we’re bringing out with us, they get bigger with us. I don’t know, Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, Korn, so I guess any young bands try to get a tour with Megadeth, they seem to work out pretty good for you.”
