I saw this a bit back and it's made me wonder ever since. Why in the world would Dave kick out his "best friend" and a guy who has been in the band for decades? Anybody know why?

Yes as fan this feels like a horrible move. Mustaine/Ellefson is really the core of the band.

This is what I have read about it:

The rumors said that Jason Newsted would be an option but Jason's wife says that he will not be replacing David Ellefson in Megadeth.

Well said. I think you are spot on here. I felt the same way. Its very sad that it seems to be about a dalliance with a fan. Both were adults, but he is a married man so it comes with some controversy that the band doesn't want to deal with and now he's out of the band. How much different history would look if dudes could just say no to temptation smile.gif

It's not a Felony smile.gif But i guess they would have to kick all the baser players out of all the bands?

Ye, was trying to be a bit more dramatic, rather than using the meaning of the word. tongue.gif

From what gather Mustaine had some on going beef with Ellefson and this might have been an excuse to part aways.
Although imho they should be old enough by now to know better .

Agreed. He's not a kid anymore. He should know better. I think his ego got the better of him. This whole thing was recorded so evidently it was planned out.
