Pole Dancer Interviews David Ellefson

On October 30, pole dancer, actress and model   Diana Lynn Band Candy   conducted an interview with former   MEGADETH   bassist   David Ellefson   at the   Chiller Theatre   convention at the Hilton Parsippany in Parsippany, New Jersey. You can now watch the chat below.

Asked what the first concert was that he ever went to,   Ellefson   said: " KISS . I think it was February 6th or 7th, 1977 at the Met Center in Bloomington, Minnesota, which is in Minneapolis, on the   'Rock And Roll Over'   tour.   URIAH HEEP   opened. I was 13, and I remember the tickets were five dollars and six dollars. Big bucks, right? I think I got the five-dollar [tickets]. I bought 'em well in advance. My mom and a friend of hers took me, my good friend   Greg   — we were grade school   KISS   fans — and my brother and one of his friends. My brother wasn't really a fan — he liked   Elton John   and the   BAY CITY ROLLERS ."

Ellefson , who was promoting his found-footage horror film   "Dwellers"   at the   Chiller Theatre   convention, joined   THE DEAD ELVI , the   Chiller   house band which performs original music and serves as the backup group for musical guests on Saturday nights, to play a cover version of the   Alice Cooper   classic   "I'm Eighteen" . It marked the 56-year-old bassist's first live performance since being fired from   MEGADETH

Ellefson   was dismissed from   MEGADETH   six months ago, just days after sexually tinged messages and explicit video footage involving the bassist were posted on   Twitter . At the time,   Ellefson   released a statement on   Instagram   denying all social media chatter that he "groomed" an underage fan. He also filed a report with the police department in Scottsdale, Arizona alleging unlawful distribution of sexually explicit images of him by unknown offenders. In the report,   Ellefson   admitted that he had been exchanging sexual text messages with a Dutch teenager, who captured a video of several of their virtual "masturbating encounters" without his consent and shared them with friends. (According to   Ellefson , the woman was 19 at the time of their first virtual sexual encounter.)   Ellefson , who lives in Scottsdale, first became aware of the video on May 9, when the claim " David Ellefson   of   MEGADETH   is a pedophile" appeared on   Instagram .   Ellefson   told police he was notified on May 14 by   MEGADETH   that the band would be parting ways with him. Three days later, he was fired.

Two days after   MEGADETH   leader   Dave Mustaine   announced   Ellefson 's latest departure from the band, the bassist released a follow-up statement in which he vowed to file a "defamation lawsuit" against the person who "illegally posted a very private video" of the bassist and made "false allegations" against him. He also said he was working with the police in Scottsdale "in their investigation into charges regarding revenge pornography to be filed against the person who posted the video. This person will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,"   Ellefson   wrote. He went on to say that he was "taking this time to be with my family" and wished his "bandmates" the best with their tour.

Ellefson   was in   MEGADETH   from the band's inception in 1983 to 2002, and again from 2010 until his latest exit. Via Blabbermouth
