Elliot Levin of the New York Hard Rock Examiner conducted an interview with bassist David Ellefson (HAIL!, F5, MEGADETH) prior to HAIL!'s January 26, 2010 performance at at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in New York City. Watch the chat below.

Ellefson last year launched "David Ellefson's Rock Shop", an ongoing YouTube video series hosted by the bassist himself.
"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," he said.
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.
"David Ellefson's Rock Shop" episodes can be viewed at this location.
