Former MEGADETH and current F5 bassist David Ellefson has posted the latest episode in "David Ellefson's Rock Shop", an ongoing YouTube video series hosted by the bassist himself.
In Episode 24, entitled "Rock Shop Lebanon", David talks to Simon El Khoury and Maher Mardini of Rockring, the Lebanese events management organization which was responsible for bringing HAIL! — the all-star band comprised of Ellefson, guitarist Andreas Kisser (SEPULTURA), Tim "Ripper" Owens (JUDAS PRIEST, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, ICED EARTH) and recently added sticksman Paul Bostaph (TESTAMENT, SLAYER, EXODUS) — to perform on November 20, 2009 at Hektic Hall in Beirut.
Ellefson previously stated about his "David Ellefson's Rock Shop" YouTube video series, "I'm always asked questions from fans and other musicians about playing the bass, the business side of our industry, and music in general. So, I decided to create these regular video webisodes as a way to inform and respond to many of those questions."
In addition to numerous gold and platinum records and seven Grammy-nominated works, David is the author of the book "Making Music Your Business" and has two metal bass guitar instructional DVDs through Rock House Method entitled "Metal Bass Vol. 1" and "Vol. 2". He is also a featured bass clinician, keynote speaker and panelist on the subject of music and the music industry.
