Megadeth bassist David Ellefson lived the metal lifestyle and came through intact. He tells his story in My Life With Deth. The autobiography chronicles everything from his youth in Minnesota through the current day. Megadeth's beginnings and rise are covered, as is Ellefson's struggle with substance abuse and journey to sobriety. His faith is a strong component of his life and the book. I spoke with Ellefson about the process, how things have been since he rejoined Megadeth a few years ago, the reaction to band's latest album Super Collider and other topics.
