Megadeth cofounder and bassist David Ellefson tells the story of the band and his personal journey as a musician. He begins with his Lutheran upbringing on a Minnesota farm and continues through his culture shock in entering the L.A. music industry and his drug-fueled Megadeth days. He then describes his road to salvation, beating addiction and embarking on a path of sobriety and faith. Now studying to be a Lutheran pastor, Ellefson presides over the MEGA Life! Ministries foundation.
