Megadeth: Killing Is My Business ... And Business Is Good!

"David Ellefson plays bass for Megadeth. He also is an online student in the Specific Ministry Program at Concordia Seminary operated by the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch ... reported that Ellefson's studies illustrate why distance learning programs at seminaries have a growing popularity nationwide, allowing students to attend divinity schools without uprooting their lives. Even in a non-traditional learning setting, Ellefson is a non-traditional student given his band has recorded albums with titles such as 'Killing Is My Business ... And Business Is Good!' ... Growing up in Minnesota, his family drove from their farm to Our Savior's Lutheran Church each Sunday. Ellefson, now 47, was confirmed there at age 16. A few years later, in the summer of 1983, Ellefson moved to Los Angeles and within a week of his arrival had formed Megadeth. ... The rock star lifestyle caught up with Ellefson by the time he was 25. He entered a 12-step recovery program and was reintroduced to his faith" ("David Ellefson, Megadeth Bassist, Goes To School To Become A Seminarian," Huffington Post, 1/19/12).
