Triple TMS Classics with Slash, Scott Ian + Tom Morello

Three guitar gods in three killer That Metal Show moments.

Today’s November plunder of That Metal Show’s video vaults comes up with three times the classic clip bounty. Check out these Season 10 “Top 5” segments featuring top-hatted axe lord Slash, Anthrax master Scott Ian, and Rage Against the Machine shredder Tom Morello.

First, Slash joins TMS co-hosts Eddie Trunk, Jim Florentine, and Don Jamieson to sound off on his picks for the Top 5 Title Tracks from classic metal albums. Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Metallica, Iron Maiden, and a multitude of titans figure high and hard into the final analysis.

Next, Scott Ian grabs a stool alongside the boys to debate the Top 5 Greatest Guitar Duos. Among the contenders Angus Young and Malcolm Young in AC/DC, Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King of Slayer, and Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing of Judas Priest.
Finally, Tom Morello jumps in to help calculate the Top 5 Black Sabbath riffs. With guitar blasts on the order of “Iron Man,” “Paranoid,” “Sweet Leaf,” “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath,” “Supernaut,” and “Mob Rules,” how can they decide? Watch and find out.
Come on back tomorrow when we’ll showcase another round of That Metal Show headbanger highlights with Van Halen vets Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony.
