Megadeth’s well-known bassist, David Ellefson was the recent interview guest of SiriusXM host Eddie Trunk’s “Trunk Nation” and revealed the latest health status of Dave Mustaine, who struggles with throat cancer for months.

As revealing that Dave is in recovery for several weeks, Ellefson stated that they didn’t make up their minds about participating in Megacruise 2019 on October 13-19.

Here is what Dave Ellefson said:

“I called Dave on September 13 — it was his birthday — and we had a nice little chat. We talk every couple of weeks. I just really try to let him go through his treatments. He sounded good.

Obviously, he is in recovery now for the next several weeks, next couple of months. We put on sale the Megadeth / Five Finger Death Punch tour across Europe starting in January, so the focus now is for Dave to just be fully rested and ready for that.”

He continued and revealed the decision process:

“There has not been an official decision or announcement made on exactly what we’re gonna do with Megacruise as far as the Megadeth side of it.

I know me and Kiko and Dirk will certainly be there. We’re hoping Dave is well enough to be there and be part of it, but, of course, the wise heads will have to prevail on that one, with his health being number one priority.

But, yeah, I’m definitely looking forward to it, man. It’s gonna be great. There’s such a great host of bands on that and all kinds of great events and things that are gonna be happening, so it’s certainly gonna be a killer cruise.”
