Episode 4 of the new season of That Metal Show is a wrap. The show we shot yesterday featured 3 first time guests all from different backgrounds of music. We are always trying different things when we can at TMS and honestly I had no idea how this one would go but happy to say it was great! Marky Ramone, Gary Holt and Darrell McDaniels all came out together at the same time. None of them really knew each other well but it made for great TV and stories. For those questioning the “metal cred” of Marky Ramone he was in a very early metal band called Dust, not to mention that Motorhead did a song called “Ramones” they love his band so much! We are a rock and metal show and Marky and the Ramones are rock icons plain and simple. As for DMC aside from the groundbreaking pairing with Aerosmith he is also a huge rock fan. And Darrell has two rock projects coming out, one with former Exodus singer Rob Dukes and his band Generation Kill that is all out metal! Watch the show and you will get it before judging. It really was a blast. If all that wasn’t enough we also had David Coverdale join us via Skype and new Whitesnake guitarist Joel Hoekstra as our guest player. Man some serious variety in this one! Hope you like it, see it this Saturday 9P ET on VH1 Classic with a replay at 11P.

    Eddie, No need to explain why you had Marky on. I love the Ramones and have been a fan since I saw them in 1978. Same year I saw AC/DC and Judas Priest. Punk Rock IS hard rock. You could have David Johansen on as well. The Dolls were groundbreaking for Glam, Punk and Hard Rock. It’s more fun and interesting to have a variety of guests. Keep it up.

      You would be surprised how many don’t get it and don’t realize we are a rock and metal show despite the name. Thanks

    Hi Ed! I live in Indonesia and can’t seem to get your show on vh1 website. Do you know where else I can watch TMS? On Youtube I can only watch snippets/bits and pieces of TMS 🙁
    Thanks man, btw, for the podcast. I downloaded almost everything on your podcastone. Your dedication yo rock and metal is inspiring!

      Sorry no control over the distribution

    I said it before and I’ll say it again: Even though I was one of those people who objected to having a rapper on the show when it was first announced, I will watch this week’s show with an open mind. After all, Matt Nathanson (I can’t remember exactly if that’s his name) is not a metal or rock guy yet he was on the show and it wasn’t a bad episode. And I knew there had to be a metal connection to having Darrell McDaniels on the show. As for Marky Ramone, I think it’s cool he’s on the show. All the original Ramones have passed away but in that band’s history, Marky is about as well known as Johnny, Dee Dee, Joey and Tommy. And here’s a little known fact: Marky played drums for the Misfits for a short stint. EVERYONE knows about the Misfits and that it was Danzig’s first band. I like a lot of old Misfits songs. The musicianship is about as terrible as it can be but a lot of the Danzig-era stuff is fun to listen to. And, although it’s dumb music, it’s strangely melodic and catchy at the same time. It’s fun for drunken sing alongs at parties.

    I’m new to your forum here, but OH EM GEE Eddie, count me in! Saturday’s show is surely to keep the viewers on the edge of their seats. I am anxious to see your interaction with Whitesnake’s David Coverdale via Skype (LIVE) and Joel Hoekstra in da house!?! \m/

    Eddie, listened to your show on hair ( trunk) nation, good interview with dee. I like dee and read his book, probably my favorite rock autobiography, but he got something else wrong, he said Coverdale/whitesnake don’t play newer songs. I have seen them many times recently and they play songs from forevermore and good to be bad. Look at their live CDs they released ( live Japan and England) they are filled with songs from those two cd. Some bands don’t play a lot of newer stuff, ws does. Also, I agree with you about too many side projects, but I did like the sweet/lynch cd, but it mostly sounded like a sweet solo, do you think it would have been better to release as a sweet cd ( featuring g lynch)?

      As I said to Dee he made the wrong choice when he picked Doug as an example and didn’t know the full history. I will podcast Doug and Dee interviews back to back soon.
      George Lynch is in about 7 bands, so I don’t think it would matter. None of these “projects” seem to have any shot with no commitment from label or artists beyond 1st week.
