Ellefson was the original bass player in the band, joining Mustaine (who’d just been kicked out of Metallica) in 1983, and staying through the band’s split in 2002. Two years later, Mustaine reactivated the band sans Ellefson, but he’d eventually rejoin in 2010, and is still with the band today.
We sat down with some of the icons of the last few decades of heavy metal and hard rock to talk about the culture, why it’s so enduring, and how it has changed. Unsurprisingly, Judas Priest’s Rob Halford, Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour), Phil Anselmo (Pantera, Down), Dave Mustaine and Dave Ellefson (Megadeth) and Jason Newsted (Metallica), all had a lot to say on the matter.
We take a close look at which rock artists are siding with President Obama, and who’s pulling for Mitt Romney. If it were up to bands, Obama would win in a landslide. Take a peek and see which way your favorites lean politically.
