Dave Ellefson
Megadeth cofounder and bassist David Ellefson presents his memoir My Life with Deth: Discovering Meaning in a Life of Rock & Roll.

In My Life with Deth, Megadeth cofounder and bassist David Ellefson reveals the behind-the-scenes details of life in one of the world s most popular heavy metal bands. If you're looking for behind-the-scenes revelations, they're all here, including the drug habits that brought the band members to their knees. Ellefson recounts unsuccessful attempts at rehab, and the period when he was strung out on methadone, cocaine, and heroin all at the same time. But My Life with Deth is more than just another memoir of debauchery. Ellefson also shares the story of his faith journey, which began when he decided his only choice for survival was to get free from his addiction. In his recovery, he returned to his roots in the Lutheran church and embraced the Christianity that continues to inform his life and work today.
