Megadeth fire bassist David Ellefson in wake of scandal

Two weeks after the private conversations and explicit video of Megadeth bassist and co-founder David Ellefson leaked online, Ellefson is now officially out of the band. Megadeth leader Davie Mustaine issued the following statement today: "We are informing our fans that David Ellefson is no longer playing with Megadeth and that we are officially parting ways with him. We do not take this decision lightly. While we do not know every detail of what occurred, with an already strained relationship, what has already been revealed now is enough to make working together impossible moving forward."
