MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson talked about the band GHOST, telling Little Punk People (transcribed by UG):
“They’re kinda spooky and scary-looking. I dressed up like a Nameless Ghoul last year for Halloween.
“I went to a Ghost show and I got a mask, so for Halloween I put the mask on, sat on my driveway and scared people when they came by. [Laughs]”
David noted earlier during the chat:
“Like a lot of people, I love this band Ghost. I just started listening to them last year, I’m kind of a latecomer.
“I like them, I like their music, it has a very tranquil, melodic thing.”
Ellefson also discussed future MEGADETH plans, saying:
“We’re starting to set up out plans for later this year – ideas are starting to come up.
“Definitely looking forward to it – [2016’s] ‘Dystopia‘ has been a great album to tour on for so long. We’re playing like 6-7 songs from ‘Dystopia’ now, which is a lot. [Chuckles] So definitely looking forward to start on the next one.”
