Rumor: Steve Di Giorgio is the bassist of Megadeth Mystery


Yesterday, a Cameo video in which Dave Mustaine hinted at the identity of Megadeth’s new bassist made its way onto the web.

Today, the Internet sleuths have made their detective, and they think they know who the mystery bassist is: Steve Di Giorgio.

The proof: a snapshot of the aforementioned Cameo video of the bassist’s instrument in question. Fans have since noted that the bass in the video is the same make and model of Ibanez often played by Di Giorgio.

Assuming he is, indeed, Steve Di Giorgio, he should be greeted by fans with open arms: Di Giorgio, I don’t need to tell you, has had a long and illustrious career in heavy music. He is currently a member of Testament, and in the past has been a part of acts such as Death, Autopsy, and Sebastian Bach.

Di Giorgio is also [not-so-humble-brag] one of the bassists suggested by MetalSucks to replace Ellefson in May. Therefore. Come on us!

Ellefson was fired from Megadeth in May amid a sex scandal. Mustaine later revealed that Ellefson’s parts for the new ‘Deth record – tentatively titled The sick, the dying and the dead – have been re-recorded by another bassist.

Megadeth is starting a tour with Lamb of God, Trivium and Hatebreed (replacing In Flames) in August, so we should find out about it as soon as possible.
