David Ellefson Remembers When Nikki Sixx Was Pronounced Dead

Megadeth bassist David Ellefson recalled what happened when Nikki Sixx was pronounced dead.

“I was there,” Ellefson told The Metal Voice in a new interview. “Adler and I were friends, and I didn’t really know the other guys too much. … I’d never met Nikki before. And we’re just partying, and Nikki comes busting into the room. I wanted to see if I could get some drugs off him, but he didn’t have any, so I guess they were looking for some too.”

He continued the story saying that in “the wee hours of the night, they left and went in the room next door. … I don’t know, 15 minutes later, a girl comes running, ‘Oh my God, I think he’d dead!’ You could hear the sirens. Fred looked at me and goes, ‘You got a car – get me the hell outta here.’ It was pretty hardcore stuff, man. Thank God, I really wasn’t around it; I mean, I had no part of it.”
