There’s sad news to report as Megadeth bassist David Ellefson is mourning the loss of his mother. The bassist posted the news on Thursday night (July 21), not long after she passed.

Megadeth have been touring, but a break in the schedule allowed the bassist to be by her side in Minnesota when she passed. The band had recently shut down touring of their most recent leg a little early as Ellefson broke his foot while performing with the band in Hungary. Read his posting on the death of his mother that includes several family photos below.

Our condolences to Megadeth’s David Ellefson and the extended family of Frances Marie Ellefson.
