Young talked about the bands up and coming new Live CD/DVD, he also gave an update on new material for the 'Kings of Thrash.' Plus he talked about the time he turned down David Lee Roth Band in the late 80's as the guitarist.


When asked about if the band was working on new music he said," We have 'Bridges Burn', we also have three more (new songs) done. There is another one called 'Bullets Ready' we were writing lyrics yesterday upstairs in the dressing room before the show. All four of us write and contribute. This is really a band in all sense of the word because my first band experience was really toxic, it was not a group of brothers like we are. We love each other, we never fight, there is no toxicity, everyone is clean and sober.

Kings of Thrash, the new band featuring former Megadeth members David Ellefson (bass) and Jeff Young (guitar), the group, which also includes drummer Fred Aching as well as guitarist/vocalist Chaz Leon, along with the occasional guest appearance by another former MEGADETH member, Chris Poland (guitar)


In addition, the band has signed a worldwide deal with Cleopatra Records and will be releasing a live CD/DVD package called Best of the West…Live at the Whisky A Go Go on March 24. The 17-song set was recorded and filmed live during the band's sold out show at the legendary Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, CA on October 15, 2022 and also features performances with Chris Poland. The DVD was directed by Michael Sarna for Inmotion Entertainment.


This multimedia package features 2 CDs and 1 DVD!
