DAVID ELLEFSON Interviews MIKE PORTNOY For Latest 'Rock Shop' Episode

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.

For Episode 28, David "spoke with good friend, drummer extraordinaire and newest HAIL! member, Mike Portnoy of DREAM THEATER, to ask him about his musical journeys, finding musicians to play with and how he keeps a big picture vision as a player."

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.
