    Newsted (Metallica) or Ellefson (Megadeth) ?
    I personally think BOTH are awesome for different things.
    What do you guys think?

    I think Newstead was better for Metallica, Ellefson for Megadeth. You could swap them and it would still be good, but not AS good.

    Ellefson's tone and style were a pretty crucial part of Megadeth's sound IMO.
     
  5. Ellefson. Infinitely better.
     
  6. Whichever one you like better is the one that's better.

    Newsted has a much better fashion sense - Maybe Ellefson could step us his game with a new stylist?

    Newsted had big shoes to fill, and although he could fully(as no one can EVER) he did do a kickass job trying

    Funny thing is, I always thought Newsted's finest hour was on Flotsam and Jetsams 'Doomsday For The Deceiver' album.

    Ellefson is a great player too. Love 'em both.

    Peace sells is one of the better sounding speedmetal albums of all the big four album!so Dave over Jason for me. Even though it's a little unfair to Jason who got treated like **** by metallicker! His best stuff is on the 'garage days rerevisted'!Gotta love his playin on 'crash course in brain surgery'!!
