I have recently heard mention of a callsign that does not show up on any data base. (QRZ, FCC, etc)  

I do believe that this happens to be the callsign of someone who is renowned.  

My question is this "Is it possible for someone famous, who is a ham, to keep their callsign out of the data base in order to protect there privacy?"

Just curious, 73's, K3EDB

Well I've never heard of such a possibility.  However, many famous personalities use their real names rather than stage names for licensing.  Thus even if you look up the call sign, you won't realize who it was.  Also, one can have a legal "doing business as" name if they do not want to reveal their actual name.  This would be useful if their stage name and actual name are the same.  For example, authors will often register a pen name as a legal "doing business as" name.  When they do so, they can sign all papers and legal documents with this name.

You can get a Federal Judge to  have
it removed from  public access if having
it published would result in harm to
you.

Actually the judge doesn't remove it he sends a
court order to the FCC for them to remove it.

Also, NTIA calls KG4xx, FEMA hams calls
(xF#EMA), KA2AA-KA0ZZ, etc are not in
the FCC data
base.

PS You will find some FEMA calls that
were issued by mistake (KF4EMA and KF6
EMA come to mind) as prior calls.
