September 22, 2023
MEGADETH alumni David Ellefson, Chris Poland, Jeff Young and Chuck Behler will be at the next Hollywood Show on October 6-7 at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel in Burbank, California. There will be photo ops, meet-and-greet sessions and signed memorabilia, along with appearances by many other celebrities.
Started in 1979, the Hollywood Show is perhaps the best known pop culture event on the West Coast. Actors, writers, performers, collectors and celebrities all come to interact with fans, autograph photos/merchandise and take photos with their admirers. While visiting with your favorite celebrities, you can also explore the various entertainment memorabilia that dealers from across the country have to offer. You'll find everything from movie posters and lobby cards to photos, props, costumes and more, so along with some great memories, you can take home your own piece of Hollywood history. The Hollywood Show has earned the reputation of being "the place" to meet celebrities, and is known worldwide as the perfect place for fans to get "up close and personal" with their favorite stars!
The Hollywood Show is owned by entertainment industry veteran David Elkouby and his wife Ester Elkouby. David Elkouby is also the owner of the legendary retail establishment Starworld. Starworld is Hollywood's premier destination for movie memorabilia, posters, photos, autographs, toys, action figures, concert videos, scripts, and magazines featuring all of your favorite stars: Michael Jackson, Marilyn Monroe, Madonna, THE BEATLES and thousands more.
Ellefson was fired from MEGADETH more than two years ago after sexually tinged messages and explicit video footage involving the bassist were posted on Twitter.
David was in MEGADETH from the band's inception in 1983 to 2002, and again from 2010 until his latest exit.
In 2004, Ellefson filed an $18.5-million lawsuit against Dave Mustaine, alleging the MEGADETH leader shortchanged him on profits and backed out of a deal to turn Megadeth Inc. over to him when the band broke up in 2002. The lawsuit was eventually dismissed and Ellefson rejoined MEGADETH in 2010.
Young's entire career with MEGADETH was spent recording and touring in support of the band's 1988 platinum-selling album "So Far, So Good...So What!"
Jeff made headlines in December 2009 for accusing Mustaine of, among other things, "dissing, exaggerating and just plain lying on some level about nearly every talented musician that has passed through his dysfunctional little ensemble." He also disputed Mustaine's claim in an interview that Young's drug problem led to MEGADETH's 1988 Australian tour being called off and the group being "banned" from performing in the country.
Poland was a member of MEGADETH from 1984 to 1987, during which time he performed on the band's classic albums "Killing Is My Business... And Business Is Good!" and "Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?" He is also a featured soloist on the group's 2004 album, "The System Has Failed".
Back in 2004, Poland and/or his management and attorney filed a lawsuit against Mustaine regarding the use of the three "Rust In Peace" demos on the album's reissue without Chris's permission. Chris eventually settled for $9,500 and thereby ended a professional relationship with Dave and MEGADETH.
For the past couple of decades, Poland's main musical focus has been the fusion band OHM:, which has released several full-length studio albums to date.
Behler played with MEGADETH from 1987 to 1989 and appeared on "So Far, So Good… So What!"
