K.K. Downing has expressed his support for David Ellefson, who recently split with Megadeth after a series of intimate videos were leaked online.
The guitarist and Judas Priest founding member discussed the topic on a recent episode of Eddie Trunk's Trunk Nation on SiriusXM.
"Dave and I, every now and again we're in touch, and, obviously, I did send David a text saying, obviously, 'You've got a lot of friends around the world. And he does. He's not just liked — he's actually loved. Because he's such a gentleman.'" Downing said, noting that Ellefson is the type of musician who always hangs out and socializes with fans.
