John Katic of GuitarWorld.com recently conducted an interview with Megadeth bassist David Ellefson about David‘s new book, Unsung: Words And Images, featuring never-before-published original lyrics and images. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.
GuitarWorld.com: You recently released a self-published book, Unsung: Words And Images. Can you tell us what inspired the project and how it got started?
Ellefson: I have a lot of lyrics from just the past few months, ideas that were really good, but I wasn’t necessarily inspired to go through the process of writing music around them all. Setting the lyrics to photo images opened up a whole new realm of creativity with these words and didn’t confine me to having to edit ideas to fit into a specific musical genre, either.
