MEGADETH members Chris Broderick and David Ellefson took part in six October Jackson clinics on both coasts and a couple points in between. Broderick and Ellefson highlighted their new Jacksonsignature bass and guitar models during highly informative and entertaining clinics that featured scorching performance demonstrations, dynamic group discussions with question-and-answer sessions and signings with two of today’s fiercest shredders.
