Summary

In this follow-up to his 2013 memoir My Life with Deth, Megadeth bassist and co-founder David Ellefson carries on where he left off, charting his mid-2000s departure from Megadeth through his triumphant return in 2010, and offering an inside look at the continuing saga of one of the world’s biggest and most enduring heavy-metal bands.

Co-written with his business partner, Thom Hazaert - a celebrated music-industry figure, radio personality, and music journalist - More Life with Deth chronicles Megadeth’s record-shattering "BIG 4" shows alongside Metallica, Slayer, and Anthrax, and the release of their Grammy-winning Dystopia - their highest-charting record in over 25 years - and the massive two-year world tour supporting it.

Far more than your typical rock star tell-all, More Life with Deth also delves deeper into the origins of Megadeth and David’s roots in rural Minnesota, and tells the stories behind the creation of his hugely successful EMP Label Group, Ellefson Coffee Co., and the relaunch of the famed metal label Combat Records, as well as his continued personal journey of spirituality and sobriety.

Told through the words of Ellefson, Hazaert, and friends including Alice Cooper, Brian "Head" Welch (Korn), Kristian Nairn (Game Of Thrones), Mark Tremonti, K.K. Downing (Judas Priest), Brian Slagel (Metal Blade Records), Frank Bello (Anthrax), Jason McMaster (Dangerous Toys), Dirk Verbeuren (Megadeth), Kiko Loureiro (Megadeth), Chris Adler (Lamb Of God, Megadeth), Dan Donegan (Disturbed), and many more, More Life With Deth is an insightful and personal look at one of the most revered rock musicians - and preeminent heavy-metal entrepreneurs - of our time.

More awesome stories with Ellefson and others!

As a diehard Megadeth fan I learned more about the band than I initially anticipated. I’m glad that I purchased the audiobook version since David has a great speaking voice and makes the stories come alive! The bonus of the audiobook is hearing other band members like Kiko and Dirk tell their stories! You also get to hear other musicians and people involved with the band tell their stories. If only Mustaine was on it speaking would be the cherry on top but not so. If you’re interested in this book then hopefully you’ve read David’s first book but if not get them both and you won’t regret it!
