Everyone knows That Metal Show is the only place for all things hard rock and heavy metal but this Saturday the show focuses on two legends of classic rock. Ed, Don and Jim are joined by Mick Jones, guitarist and primary songwriter for FM radio staples Foreigner, and hallowed king of syrupy guitar tones, Leslie West of Mountain. And if that ain’t enough, the lovely and legendary Lita Ford breaks down the barriers as the show’s first ever female guest musician, and it’s about time! Check out pictures from this week’s taping and tune in Saturday night at 11/10C to watch the whole show and also see the boys address the latest Kiss controversy surrounding their Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction, only on VH1 Classic.

Rock and pop stars are very talented people. They are also very attractive people. When they decide to combine their incredible talent with their incredible good looks and take a turn at modeling for some high-end fashion houses -look out! The results are, predictably, insanely hot. Y’heard? We thought so. Get ready folks, because it’s time to vogue our way through Vogue (and Elle and Harper’s…)!
We fell for Mumford & Sons back in 2010 when they were West London folk scene-ers making a play for the U.S. we thought You Oughta Know. Sophomore LP Babel soon followed, giving them Grammy wins. So we flipped out when after three years of avid fandemonium, health scares and brilliant Unplugged performances, Mumford announced their “indefinite” hiatus.
But we have the cure for your sads that Mumford won’t appear on this years festival lineups. Palladia is airing their full Live From The Artists Den concert tonight at 9/8C. We’ve got a sneak of the washboard playing quartet rocking their hit “I Will Wait” to the Belasco Theater crowd in downtown Los Angeles. But before you press play, here are five things to watch for in the clip that will either make you an instant fan or further your obsession before the full show airs.
Well, here’s something you don’t hear every day! Former Talking Heads front-man David Byrne attended a a concert and rally for Content Creators Coalition in New York City last night, where he performed an epic rendition of Biz Markie’s hip hop classic “Just A Friend.” Held at the legendary Greenwich Village venue Le Poisson Rouge, the show was sought to raise awareness for a proposed terrestrial radio performance royalty. The policy would allow not only composers but also the singers and performers to receive a royalty whenever their song is played on the radio.
It’s a good cause, and a surprisingly good cover -what else could you ask for! Sometimes the unexpected covers are the most satisfying. Head down below for 10 more creative re-imaginings of classic tunes!
We don’t remember what we got for our 22nd birthday, but we’re definitely wasn’t as cool as Shehnaz Kahn’s present this year. The student was down in front at Birmingham UK’s LG Arena for Beyonce‘s Mrs. Carter World Tour, which is already wayyyy better than any bday we’ve ever had. But Queen Bey had something even more special up her sleeve. She stopped in the middle of the concert sing “Happy Birthday,” to the breathless fan, who got it all on video!
The lights dim and a robotic female voice counts down, inching you closer to the moment you’ve been waiting for…ten…nine…eight… The spotlight casts his silhouette 30 feet high onto the wall of Madison Square Garden, an image of regality, Justin Timberlake clasps the cufflinks on his white Tom Ford…seven, six, five… His shadow brings light into the hearts of the city. This is it, New York.And you’re ready…four, three, two, one…
Every year millions of people sit down in front of their televisions to watch their favorite artists win awards or perform their hits. But little did they know that they would also get a little extra with the usual program. Throughout the years we have witnessed artists and fans lose their minds and do the craziest things, from a spazzing out on stage next to a rock legend to an artist wrecking what should have been a very special moment for another artist. The history of music awards shows are littered with acceptance speech crashers and performance crashes. Here are 10 of the most memorable! Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the #FAIL Awards.
