The iconic bassist of Megadeth, David Ellefson made a new interview with Junkman of Doll Hut Radio and shared the latest news about Dave Mustaine’s battle against throat cancer.

David revealed that Dave Mustaine is doing really good on his treatment.

Here is his statement:

“He’s moving along. He’s doing his treatments. I appreciate all the thoughts and prayers for him. Like he said, it’s to be faced head on, which he’s doing, which is great. So that’s moving along, which is good news on that front.

And then, as far as the cruise goes, we’re just kind of figuring out what and how that will be. And a lot of that’s gonna be based on Dave’s health condition at that point. But we’re keeping that moving forward.”

He also shared the latest details about Megadeth’s latest studio album.

Here is what he said:

“But the cruise is gonna be great regardless. The awesome thing is that when that announcement went out about Dave’s throat cancer, right away, Chuck Billy and all the guys started hitting me up, going, Hey, if you need us to sing some Megadeth songs, we’ll do it.’ So the outpouring of love and goodwill and cool factor from everybody was just awesome…

We’ll see how that all plays out. Meanwhile, we’re working on the new album, and that’s been coming along. And quite honestly, it’s been fun to be creating and working on that through this transition here as well.”
