David Ellefson in Scottsdale

David EllefsonDavid Warren Ellefson is an American bassist and second-longest serving member of the American thrash metal band Megadeth from 1983 to 2002 and again from 2010 to present. David lives with his wife Julie and their kids in Scottsdale.

Ellefson was born November 12, 1964 in Jackson, Minnesota. He became an accomplished bassist and honed his songwriting skills while leading several of his own bands through the club scene of North America’s Midwest region before moving to Los Angeles. Ellefson is most famously known as the co-founder of the American heavy metal band Megadeth from 1983 to 2002 and again from 2010. He is often referred to as “Junior” to differentiate him from his Megadeath bandmate Dave Mustaine, but does not go by this name professionally.

In October 2015 Ellefson launched a record label and production company, Ellefson Music Productions, also known as EMP Label Group, and would release In Your Face, the debut EP from Phoenix-based all-girl pop-punk group Doll Skin (which Ellefson also produced), in conjunction with Megaforce Records in North America, and Cargo Records in Europe. The singles received airplay on many prominent stations in the US and Europe. Recently, in January of 2017, Ellefson opened Ellefson Coffee Co. in his hometown, Jackson, Minnesota.
