MD.45 was a side project of Megadeth guitarist/frontman Dave Mustaine, Fear guitarist/vocalist Lee Ving on singing duties, Electric Love Hogs bassist Kelly LeMieux and former Suicidal Tendencies member Jimmy DeGrasso (who later joined Megadeth for Risk and The World Needs A Hero) on drums. The band name derives from the initials of the band members: M and D for Mustaine and DeGrasso, and V and L for Ving and LeMieux (assuming that VL is a Roman numeral for 45, which is in fact erroneous because 45 is actually represented as XLV).
