David Ellefson has been keeping himself rather busy - from working on Megadeth's 16th album and solo music to connecting youth musicians with all-star instructors through his "School's Out" initiative. So how does David hope the initiative will continue to help both new and established artists during the COVID-19 pandemic? What inspired him to cover Post Malone's "Over Now" (and what did the rapper think of the cover)? Why is it important to the legendary bassist that Megadeth record their new album in-person versus remotely? And how did meeting Cheap Trick as a teenager influence the way he handles himself in front of fans today?

Find out what David reveals in “There Goes My Hero” - an interview series where Matt and Zach talk to their favorite artists about the first time they met their idols. Hear our guests relive every glorious (and possibly embarrassing) moment from encountering their musical heroes, and how that experience impacted them for the rest of their lives. 

Stay tuned for Part 2 of our chat with the Megadeth bassist!
