Dave Ellefson (Megadeth) and Jay aka Johnny Wore Black

You’ve just convinced one of the best known bassists in metal to collaborate with you on your new record. So what are you (really) listening to? The answers after the jump.

Jay is the moniker behind the project Johnny Wore Black and is the architect of a new record featuring longtime Megadeth bassist Dave “Junior” Ellefson.

When Jay isn’t creating his own brand of “dark, atmospheric musical intrigue” he’s working as a stuntman on such films as Les Miserables, The Dark Knight Rises, Fast and Furious 6 and most recently, Fury with Brad Pitt.

So we asked Jay what he’s been “really” listening to and here’s what he told us.

Alice in ChainsNo Excuses

David BowieValentine’s Day
