Brazil’s Wikimetal podcast recently conducted an interview with MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson. You can now stream the podcast using the Mixcloud player below. (Note: The Ellefson interview begins around the 14-minute mark.)
Ellefson last fall became one of 100 students in the distance education program at the Concordia Seminary in Clayton, Missouri. Classes include “Lutheran Distinctions,” “Preaching I II,” “Introduction to Worship” and “Scripture and Faith.”
MEGADETH was among the nominees for the 54th annual Grammy Awards, which was held on February 12 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The band’s tenth Grammy nomination was for its single “Public Enemy No. 1”, off MEGADETH‘s latest album, “TH1RT3EN”, which came out on November 1, 2011.
“Public Enemy No. 1” actually marked the second Grammy nomination for music from “TH1RT3EN”, as the song “Sudden Death” was first unveiled in the 2010 video game “Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock” and received a “Best Metal Performance” nod.
