David Ellefson (MEGADETH) and Frank Bello (ANTHRAX) took part in a joint clinic at the Bass Player LIVE! event on November 10 at S.I.R. studios in Hollywood, California. Video footage of the event can be seen in four parts below (courtesy of Metal Assault). Ellefson's memoir, "My Life With Deth", was made available on October 29 via Howard Books. It chronicles the story of Ellefson's fall into addiction during the band's early years, followed by his subsequent recovery and the return to faith which championed the band's rise to fame over the past several decades. In addition to numerous gold and platinum records, 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. Frank Bello is the powerhouse bassist for the groundbreaking New York City speed-thrash metal institution ANTHRAX. Born and raised in the Bronx, Bello started playing when he was 12, learning bass parts on guitar; idolizing bass heroes such as Geddy Lee, Steve Harris and Geezer Butler; and frequently jamming with his uncle, ANTHRAX drummer Charlie Benante. Bello joined ANTHRAX in time for 1985's "Spreading the Disease", and fans loved his high-energy stage presence and deftly inventive bass style. Since that time, ANTHRAX quickly reached the upper echelons of metal stardom with a series of classic punk/speed metal albums fueled by Bello's ferociously riffing bass work. On stage and off, Frank Bello is a veritable bass ambassador who doesn't pull any musical punches. Bello continues to play with a ferocity and finesse that has won him acclaim far and wide.
