Megadeth bassist David Ellefson was the recent guest of Canada’s The Metal Voice’s Jimmy Kay and his new book which he co-wrote with his business partner Thom Hazaert.

Ellefson revealed the story behind the story about him in the Mötley Crüe biopic, Dirt.

Here is what he said:

“I was there, Steven Adler and I were friends and I didn’t really know the other guys too much. I was at the Franklin Plaza Hotel and I was up there and Fred Coury from Cinderella.

I’d never met Nikki before and we’re just partying and Nikki come busting into the room and I wanted to see if I could get some drugs off of him but they didn’t have any so I guess they were looking for some too.

At the wee hours of the night they left and went in the room next door and I mean literally I don’t know 15 minutes later a girl comes running oh my god, I think he’s dead.

You could hear the sirens. Fred looked at me and goes, you got a car, get me the hell out of here. It was pretty hardcore stuff man thank God I really wasn’t around it, I mean I had no part of it.”
