For decades, young boys have been lured to a life of rock ‘n’ roll in hopes of making money and meeting girls. Although many fail, a lucky few become rich and famous beyond their wildest dreams. But handful of those take it even further. Their rock star status, natural charisma, and insatiable libido vault them to the level of modern sex legends, with more partners than it’s even possible to fathom!
Where would you be without hard rock and heavy metal music? Hopefully we won’t ever have to find out. Watch the new promo for That Metal Show with everyone from Slash, Lemmy (Motorhead), Michael Schenker, Warrant, Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), Tom Morello, and more of your favorite rock stars as they sound sound-off on why they’re passionate about hard rock music, and list their favorite bands. Oh, and don’t worry, we aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. A brand new season of That Metal Show starts this August on VH1 Classic.
Last week on That Metal Show, we welcomed back Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead), Jerry Dixon and Robert Mason (Warrant), and Michael Schenker, who rocked out as our guest musician. Did you miss the episode? Watch it online, right here.
This week we are joined by TMS alum; Frank Hannon (Tesla), who is our guest musician for the week, Michael Schenker, and Mike McCready (Pearl Jam). In the clip we have for you above, the guys start talking about The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame (Eddie’s favorite), and McCready excites the guys when he tells them that Pearl Jam has been talking about holding out on accepting their entrance to the RRHOF until Kiss gets inducted. How rock n’ roll would that be? Watch the new episode of That Metal Show this Saturday at 11 p.m. ET/10 CT on VH1 Classic.
This week on That Metal Show, we were joined by Lemmy (Motörhead), Jerry Dixon and Robert Mason (Warrant), and Michael Schenker, who rocked out as our guest musician for the second week in a row. For our TMS Top 5 segment we decided to have the hosts come up with the Top 5 Albums of this century. There aren’t THAT many bands out there, so it shouldn’t be so hard, right? Let’s get started.
How do you choose from Tesla’s album; Into the Now (with the original band, mind you), Buckcherry’s comeback record; 15, Accept’s; Blood of The Nations, which ended up on both Eddie and Don’s list, it’s a tough choice. You also have the underrated band like Hatebreed, who released Perseverance back in 2002 and The Blackening by Machine Head who is Jim’s “modern day Master of Puppets” (Metallica). Which, of course, is debatable. So, what ended up on the list? We’ve got it for you below.
Last week on That Metal Show, we were joined by Michael Schenker (who rocked out on the guitar for us) and Iron Maiden‘s Adrian Smith. The guys talked all things Maiden and Eddie got a little emotional when surprised with a gift from Michael Schenker. Miss the episode? No worries, we have the full episode online, right here. (Go ahead and watch it at work, we don’t mind.)
This week, we welcome back Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead) who will be joined by Jerry Dixon and Robert Mason (Warrant) as well as Michael Schenker, who will be returning as our guest musician. The guys from Warrant discuss the untimely loss of Jani Lane and the last time they saw him alive, and Lemmy weighs in on why hard drugs were never for him. A brand new episode of That Metal Show airs this Saturday at 11 p.m. ET/10 CT on VH1 Classic.
As exciting as the last season of VH1 Classic’s That Metal Show, you ain’t seen nothing yet! Eddie Trunk, Jim Florentine and Don Jamieson are back for the tenth season of the show that’s revered by metalheads and musicians alike, and although the show won’t be back until Saturday, March 31, we just got our hands on a sneak preview of the first batch of confirmed guests and it’s a DOOZY.
Leading the way will be a first time That Metal Show appearance by Adrian Smith of Iron Maiden, which we are totally geeking out in anticipation of. “I’ve known the Maiden guys for a long time and been a fan since day one,” host Eddie Trunk told us. “They are easily one of the most requested bands to have a member of on TMS. Because they are such a global band it’s been hard to track them down, but thrilled we were able to catch up with Adrian. It will be cool because we don’t hear from him often, he’s a great guy, has a huge history with the band, and has a new side project to discuss.”
We asked Eddie if there’s any chance that he’d dress up as Iron Maiden’s infamous mascot, Eddie The Head, for the show. His reply? “I do have a mask, so you never know…”
Also on the docket this season will be appearances from Jason Newsted (another TMS newbie!), Metallica‘s Lars Ulrich, Motorhead‘s Lemmy Kilmister and the one and only Alice Cooper. “We’re super psyched about this lineup, as is Eddie Trunk. “I’m so excited about the evolution of the show, having rock and metal artists, and first time and returning guests,” he told us. “I love all the variety and am thrilled for a huge 2012!”
