MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson has uploaded behind-the-scenes footage from the September 13 "Battle Of San Bernardino" concert at San Manuel Amphitheater in Devore, California featuring MEGADETH alongside IRON MAIDEN, ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT, OVERKILL, SABATON and WARBRINGER. Check it out below.
In a recent interview with Full Metal Jackie's nationally syndicated radio show, MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine stated about the band's recently completed tour with IRON MAIDEN: "One of the first shows we did, it was actually the Nashville show, we all went to a private club that was shut down, and hung out and had cocktails and stuff, and Shawn [Drover, MEGADETH drummer] went playing golf with Nicko [McBrain, IRON MAIDEN drummer] — a couple of times, as a matter of fact, I think. I know that they played in Las Vegas with Rod Smallwood, [IRON MAIDEN's] manager, and I've talked with Dave Murray [IRON MAIDEN guitarist] and with Adrian [Smith, IRON MAIDEN guitarist]. I saw Bruce [Dickinson, IRON MAIDEN singer] for half a second, because he was pretty busy, but I think out of everybody we saw, we saw Nicko the most. Nicko's probably the most outward-going guy, too. I think the other guys just kind of got that really cool kind of British shyness sometimes that's so respectable, that stiff-upper-lip kind of thing."
MEGADETH's latest album, "Super Collider", has sold 70,000 copies in the United States since its June 4 release. The CD arrived in stores via Mustaine's new label, Tradecraft, distributed by Universal Music Enterprises (UMe).
