2/4: GEDDY LEE, JOHN PETRUCCI, & MORE IN THAT METAL SHOW DEBUT 2/21!
Extremely psyched to welcome Geddy Lee of Rush for the hour as our guest on the first new episode of That Metal Show in almost a year! I really wanted someone huge for our debut and once again the Rush camp stepped up. Back in season 1 we had Geddy and Alex on and it was a great solid they did me at the time. You see TMS was in it’s infancy and nobody knew what was going to happen with the show. Ged & Alex flew down from Toronto to come on when we were just a 30 minute show not many had yet seen. Now 5 years and about 125 episodes later Geddy is back with us! I am also pleased to welcome Dream Theater guitar virtuoso John Petrucci as our guest musician. We will of course talk with John a bit during the show. Look forward to having him on for his TMS debut and see what guitar fireworks he has in store! I can also tell you there are some special surprises being planned for this episode that will not be announced in advance. It promises to be an epic return! We shoot it in NYC in less than 2 weeks and you will see it at our new start time of 9PM ET on VH1 Classic with a replay at 11PM and replays all week as usual. The remaining guests for the 12 episode new season will be announced as we go. Since we are shooting weekly everything is subject to change. But we have some great guests for the other 11 shows lined up with a very diverse roster, maybe more so than ever. TMS is back! Thanks for all the support as always. Here is the VH1 press release on episode 1 and more in the news section too: : https://eddietrunk.com/rushs-geddy-lee-confirmed-for-season-14-premiere-of-vh1-classics-flagship-series-that-metal-show-dream-theaters-john-petrucci-will-make-his-debut-as-gues/
