The free event is open to the public and will take place during the college’s annual celebration of jazz and American music. Ellefson has authored several books, including My Life with Deth and Making Music Your Business…A Guide For Young Musicians.
The accomplished bassist has dedicated years to perfecting his craft, and recently shared his words of wisdom for aspiring musicians on Sioux Falls, South Dakota radio station KBAD 94.5, stating, “Be committed to what it is you wanna do. My first thing is, man, play with everybody; play with as many different people as possible when you’re young. As you get older and your career goes on, you will start to focus and define your style and your sound. And from there, you try to get really united, like I did with Dave. I mean, he and I have hung together pretty much most of the Megadeth career.”
Megadeth continues their Dystopia world tour through the end of June. Check out the dates here.
