May 12, 1988 Megadeth released Mary Jane, the second single from the album ‘So Far, So Good... So What!’

“Back in the day, we'd always write songs and work on them as a band during Soundchecks while on tour, and every once in a while, perform them live on stage before they were recorded. Here's one of ‘Mary Jane’ that we wrote during the last leg of the ‘Peace Sells’ tour and performed only a few times before entering the studio in late 1987 with the SFSGSW lineup of Chuck Behler and Jeff Young.” ~ David Ellefson

"My favorite track on SFSGSW. I also got to play the acoustic guitar on that one, which was fun!" - Jeff Young / Six-Strings Inc.

Check out a killer video in the comments of a 1987 live performance of Mary Jane!

The Providence Dual Bass Station pedal is spot on for replicating my clean and clear

☢️ Thank you so much to my dear friend Terry Welty, who has been Geezer Butler's Bass Tech for a good many years. His shop in St. Louis was kind enough to make this custom pedal for me using technology from the infamous Bob Heil who I was familiar with back in the 1970s with his fiberglass PA enclosures as well as the infamous Heil Talk Box.

Terry and I became good friends in 2014 when Megadeth and Black Sabbath did the South American tour together. A great man with great ideas and truly a kind heart. Thank you so so much Terry!
