In a brand new interview with Australia’s Glam Adelaide, Megadeth bassist David Ellefson spoke about his relationship with the band’s mainman, Dave Mustaine, and how it was affected by Mustaine‘s conversion to Christianity.
‘As far as faith goes, it brings people together,’ Ellefson responded. ‘It has as far as Megadeth goes anyway; it’s given us a common menu to read from. The faith part of it has helped in a really cool way; it’s a commonality for us.’
He continued: ‘I believe that there’s a fundamental idea of God inside each of us, however you choose to understand it. It’s made things so much better for us — our music, lives and everything else, actually.’
Ellefson, who has lived through the sex, drugs and rock and roll lifestyle associated with the music industry, also offered a message for those going through a tough time right now.
