Megadeth announce James LoMenzo as permanent replacement for David Ellefson
Thrash metal legends Megadeth have officially announced James LoMenzo as their "permanent" bassist, effectively replacing co-founder David Ellefson, who was dismissed from the band a year ago.
LoMenzo was Megadeth's bass player in the mid-2000s and recently stepped back in as a touring member.
Dave Mustaine says, "I am thrilled to welcome back James to the Megadeth family. James rejoined the fold as the touring bassist and it's been a blast having him back, we thought let's make it permanent."
LoMenzo adds, "I'm so excited to rejoin Megadeth and move forward full steam into the next phase of this iconic band's history! With Dave, Kiko and Dirk there's no stopping us! It just feels great to be home again."

Duh. That said, can't wait for the new album. Especially with Dirk behind the kit
Joining a major band at the end of their expiration date is not the acievement he thinks it is.
Dave Mustaine here. Tanking my business is my business and business is good!
I'm sure we're going to get a whole bunch of articles where Dave just talks about how LoMenzo was always going to be the best choice for Megadeth and how he's a perfect fit and blah blah blah until they have a falling out and the next dude joins and he's the best fit ever; wash, rinse, repeat. Eddie Trunk is stoked.
