Sweetwater has uploaded a six-minute video in which MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson shows you four of his favorite bass riffs that were instrumental in his progression on the instrument — and they just so happen to all originate from Gene Simmons of KISS.
The legendary Megadeth bassist David Ellefson gave an interview to Sweetwater playing his favorite bass riffs and explaining why they are so special, praising Kiss’ Gene Simmons.
Check it out:
David Warren Ellefson (born November 12, 1964) is an American bassist, co-founder and second-longest serving member of the American heavy metal band Megadeth from 1983 to 2002 and again from 2010.
He has also been referred to as “Junior” to differentiate him from his bandmate Dave Mustaine, but does not go by this name professionally. Ellefson currently resides in Scottsdale, Arizona. In addition to playing bass guitar in Megadeth, Ellefson also has various side projects which include Temple of Brutality, F5, Killing Machine and Metal Allegiance.
