Megadeth Shakeup Came At The Right Time Says Ellefson

. (Classic Rock) Megadeth bassist Dave Ellefson says the time was right for Shawn Drover and Chris Broderick to leave the band. Drummer Drover and guitarist Broderick walked away late last year, leaving Ellefson and frontman Dave Mustaine as the band's only two remaining members.

And Ellefson says that while their departures were sudden, it was the right time for all parties concerned. He tells The Metal Review: "I think it was time. Shawn had been there 10 years. Next to me and obviously Dave, Shawn had been there the longest of anybody. He was a good soldier for Megadeth. In a lot of ways he helped bring me back into the fold. Shawn should always be remembered by the Megadeth fans as one of the true supporters who really got it.

"As a fan, a musician within the band, he got it. One of the songs he co-wrote ended up as a Grammy nomination, his record speaks for itself. Chris is just a phenomenal musician and a super great guy." Read more here.
