Megadeth bassist Dave Ellefson recently met up with Brian Lew, the band's former fan club operator, and was presented with a copy of Murder in the Front Row, a book by Lew and photographer Harold Oimoen. The book documents the early days of the Bay Area thrash scene and includes many, many vintage live and backstage photos of Megadeth, Metallica, Slayer, Exodus, Testament, Vio-lence (Robb Flynn and Phil Demmel's pre-Machine Head band) and many more. The clip is above, and the book is available from Bazillion Points.
