Mustaine vs Ellefson (again)
Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine has sued the band’s former bass player, David Ellefson, for allegedly using the name of the group without permission in an advertisement for musical equipment. The suit claims that he and Ellefson entered into a settlement agreement in February that restricts the guitarist’s use of the band name.
We are assuming that the fact Ellefson filed an $18.5-million lawsuit in the New York federal court against Mustaine and the band, claiming he was entitled to a greater share of the band’s profits, last year has nothing to do with this.
Kiss and make up? I wouldn’t hold your breath. Mustaine is a guy who knows how to hold a grudge.
