Screaming Butterfly Entertainment have joined forces with ex-Megadeth bassist David Ellefson’s Ellefson Films for a new documentary on late Megadeth drummer Nick Menza. The film, which is titled “This Was My Life: The Story Of Nick Menza,” will be narrated and co-produced by Ellefson.
Ellefson said the following:
“I am proud to announce I will narrate/co-produce the upcoming documentary film ‘This Was My Life: The Story Of Nick Menza’ and I look forward to sharing together with you the life story of one of music’s most celebrated rock star drummers of all time, Nick Menza.”
Menza’s manager Robert Bolger also commented:
“I am very happy to connect David Ellefson with Screaming Butterfly Entertainment to narrate/co-produce the project. Ellefson’s involvement and knowledge will secure the authenticity of the film. They both spent a lot of personal time together touring world, and if anyone knew Nick best, it’s David Ellefson. Nick loved his fans and always said without the fans none this would be possible. I really think Nick’s fans will enjoy this journey through his life.”
Executive producer/director Holly Mollohan (Screaming Butterfly Entertainment) added:
“I am very happy to welcome David Ellefson to the ‘This Was My Life’ team. He brings with him a wealth of in-depth knowledge and personal experience that will be so valuable to making this film something very special for the fans and Nick’s family. I believe that his involvement will be an extremely positive addition to the project, and am excited to collaborate with him on the film.”
