Free from all restrictions and with a steadfast refusal to be pigeonholed, David Ellefson’s journey to the musical summit is ever ongoing.
Nestled in a hotbed that was the LA music scene, it wasn’t long before Ellefson struck a proverbial chord centered around meeting once discarded Metallica alum Dave Mustaine, and subsequently co-founding seminal thrash band, Megadeth. As a scene mainstay, Ellefson influenced both rock music and bass players alike with his work in and out of Megadeth.
For Fortier, his path to the world’s biggest stage was not the same as most. While Fortier always loved the guitar, and cut his cops from a young age, it wasn’t until his work on the documentary, Attack On Life: The Bang Tango Movie, that Fortier took the next step toward rock and metal immortality.
