Host Matt O'Shaughnessy rages with Ellefson this Friday, November 9th at 8:10 PM, EST on WVOX.com Worldwide and 1460 AM.
David will talk with WVOX's Metal Mayhem about Megadeth's Countdown To Extinction 20th Anniversary tour and special edition re-release of the legendary 1992 album.
Thanks to a perfect balance of hard-rock song structures, epic choruses and fleet-fingered guitar work, Countdown To Extinction became an instant classic, benefiting from copious MTV and radio play. The album shot to #2 on the Billboard top 200 charts and was certified double platinum in the US within two years, with sales of more than two million copies. Countdown To Extinction earned a Grammy Award nomination (Best Metal Performance) and it's title cut garnered a Genesis Award from the Humane Society for raising awareness for animal rights issues.
