Hell hath frozen over, well actually everywhere is frozen over these days as it’s the middle of the coldest winter we’ve had in years but regardless, we’re freakin’ excited this week because none other than the Motor City Madman, the master of the Gibson Byrdland, the man who spread intensities in way more than ten cities, terrible Ted Nugent is coming to That Metal Show to lay down the gonzo gospel and it’s a free for all as to what’s going to happen! If it that ain’t cool enough we’ve got out of control shred-monster Gary Hoey as this week’s musical guest.

This Saturday it’s a trash metal bass summit as 4-string wranglers Dave Ellefson from Megadeth and Frank Bello from Anthrax sit down with the boys and if that isn’t cool enough Guns N’ Roses guitar maniac Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal is this week’s special musical guest.

Last week on That Metal Show, we were joined by Scott Ian (Anthrax) who helped us with the TMS Top 5, Alice Cooper, Jack Russell (Great White) and Brian Tichy who rocked out on the drums. (Did you miss it? Watch it online here!)
This week, we welcome back Slash, who is here to help us with another celebrity edition of the TMS Top 5. We are also joined by Mick Brown, Jeff Pilson, and George Lynch of the newly founded T&N. The guys address rumors and talk all things Dokken. Our guest musician for the week is …wait for it…BRIAN TICHY! Brian Tichy is back for a second week and will be speed bagging and drumming at the same time, which is pretty cool if you ask us. A brand new episode of That Metal Show airs this Saturday at 11 p.m. ET/10 CT on VH1 Classic.
We absolutely loved having The Fray as our February Posted artist, and each week we hung out impatiently waiting for their intimate blog posts. Just when we thought our candid glimpse into the life of The Fray was over, the boys threw us yet another bone — this time in the form of a behind the scenes sneak peek at their new video for “Run For Your Life.” Filmed in the California desert, the boys took some time out to talk to us about the inspiration for the video. “Conceptually I love the idea of survivors guilt it’s an insidious black hole that people fall in,” says front man Isaac Slade. Guitarist Joe King adds, “Just lyrically alone it’s not a fluff song, it’s not about the club… it’s a serious song.” Serious indeed, according to Ben Wysocki who explains, “The video is a collection of people from different places in life deciding to use everything in them, emotionally, physically, to run… a beautiful portrayal of freedom and liberation.” Now we’re excited to see the full video — watch this space, because the full clip is due for release next week!
You’re pumped for VH1 DIVAS Celebrates Soul, right? The show airs TONIGHT on VH1 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, but we filmed our divas yesterday and we’ve got to tell you — you’re in for a real treat! We’re about to dangle the carrot too, and give you a little glimpse of what you can expect from tonight’s broadcast; we gave you a tease last night by giving you the official list of performances, but now we’ve got a little video to whet your appetite. Tonight’s show opens with three radiant divas — Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson — singing “Keep Me Hanging On,” and these lovely ladies do nothing less than bring the house down with their rendition of this Supremes classic. Tune-in tonight at 9 p.m. to catch this entire performance and many more! (Oh, and btw, if you’re tweeting, don’t forget to use the hashtag #VH1DIVAS.)
Unless you’re an android, breakups are never easy. Although a bit tumultuous, The Script’s first video from Science & Faith was predominantly romantic and lovey-dovey (which matched with the song’s themes). But for the album’s second single, it seems the the Irish imports decided to go in a different direction.
A boys night out gets a little sloppy when lead singer Danny O’Donaghue drunkenly exits a bar with his loyal bandmates behind him. Stumbling and wasted, Danny surfs the wave of intoxication, screaming the lovesick lyrics to “Nothing” down the street to his (presumable) recent ex, who in this clip, doesn’t appear to be present. And hey, we’ve all been guilty of engaging in or receiving such behavior before, right? Drunk dialing, bitter Facebook posts, longing latenight email drafts… it happens! But what will come of the boys’ debauchery-ridden evening, Script fans? Come back on Thursday morning to see, when we’ll have the exclusive premiere for the full “Nothing” video here for you.
So you thought that videos didn’t get any sexier than Shakira’s “She Wolf”? It’s entirely possible that you’re right, but then again, we haven’t seen the entire video for her new single “Loca” yet! Based on the :30 sneak preview that we’ve got for you above, though, it’s going to be a close race (which, really, makes us all winners). In these thirty quick seconds, Shakira is seen on rollerskates, dropping trou in a crowded Barcelona street corner before changing into skintight leather pants, riding a motorcycle in a bikini top and frolicking in a water fountain. Now, if you’ll excuse us, we need to catch our breath. Look for the full video to debut online at midnight on September 29 and on our VH1 Top 20 Video Countdown show this weekend.
Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” is, without a doubt, the song of the summer of 2010. Not only has it been perched near the top of the Billboard charts since June, it’s also still sitting high atop our weekly Top 20 Video Countdown. That said, there’s only a few weeks left until the release of her new LP, Teenage Dream, and the best way to get fans excited to go out and purchase the new album is to release another catchy single and another sexy video. As you’ll see, the future Mrs. Russell Brand really delivers on both fronts; the Max Martin produced song has one of the year’s most bangin’ choruses (right up there with Ke$ha’s “Your Love Is My Drug”) and, well, Perry has never looked better than she does in this video. You’ll have to wait until next week to see the whole thing, but hopefully this snippet will tide you over until then.
