LAMB OF GOD vocalist Randy Blythe and former MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson performed a cover of METALLICA’s “One” on the ShipRocked cruise yesterday (Thursday, January 26)
ShipRocked 2023 is taking place on the ‘Carnival Magic‘, which departed the Dominican Republic yesterday for another day at sea before returning to Port Canaveral, Florida on Saturday. You can check out video of the performance below (courtesy of the Metal Edge YouTube channel).
Ellefson also shared the clip to his social media, writing: “Great time jamming @metallica ‘One’ featuring Randy Blythe on vocals with THE STOWAWAYS on @shiprocked Cruise today!”
Back in 2019, Ellefson said that he had gotten MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine‘s “blessing” to audition for the then vacant bassist position in METALLICA after the departure of Jason Newsted 22 years ago. David went on to say that he learned how to play a handful of METALLICA‘s songs in preparation for the potential gig, however it never came to fruition.
