I’d agree, but we’re talking Dave Mustaine here. He has spent the last 15 years “going against the grain” by identifying as a Christian. Ellefson has now threatened his image. Thus, Ellefson has to go. It’s always about Dave.I just think, if this was me, I’d probably do the same. Dave is one of the most well-known rockstar Christians and Ellefson is a flipping pastor. Seeing him break the seventh commandment, thereby removing any façade that he had formed around his image, would make me question if I ever really knew my buddy, my bandmate, and it certainly would make working with him hard going forward. So I really don’t blame him in this.
But that’s just me.
