Megadeth Won't Chase 'Fool's Gold' Reunion Says Ellefson

. (TeamRock Radio) Megadeth bassist David Ellefson insists it would be a mistake to choose the band's next lineup with the idea of reliving former glory. And while he hasn't ruled out the return of previous members, he's certain they should be picked according to how they'll benefit the thrash icons' latest songs.

He and Dave Mustaine are currently at work on Megadeth's 15th album, but it's not yet known who'll join them on the record following the departures of Chris Broderick and Shawn Drover last year.

Ellefson tells Full Throttle Rock: "There are some developments. We've spent the last several months sorting things out. What I've come to is that we need to make a great record. The songs have always determined who's going to be in the band, and nothing should change with that.

"To go back and chase some glory day is like chasing fool's gold. The songs and the album are going to determine what the lineup is, and I think that's the proper order." Read more here.
