Hope everyone had a great weekend and thanks for all the awesome response to last nights new TMS. As usual the Top 5 gets a ton of reaction, which of course is a good reason to do it! So many people scream “WHAT ABOUT……”. That of course is the whole reason to do it! The whole point is you can ONLY list 5, and of course we will always forget some and leave some great ones off. The fact I left off “Love To Love” by UFO, which is pretty much my favorite song ever is nuts for me! But I always think of the live version vs the studio version that ends Lights Out. It’s all good fun and debate for sure. This weeks show was a bit of an experiment having three first time guests, all rock fans, and all from different styles of music. And none of them knew each other. So we decided let’s bring them all out together and just have fun. And it worked great! As usual some stuff was cut out due to time (which kills me but that’s TV!) but we had a great hang for sure and most people really loved it. Thanks to Marky Ramone, DMC and Gary Holt. Hope to have them all back again soon.  Also always nice to check in with David Coverdale and have Joel Hoekstra play as well. It was a jam packed show for sure! It repeats all weekend and online at www.thatmetalshow.vh1.com with extras.

Next show we shoot is this Tuesday that you will see this Saturday. Guests include John Bush and Joey Vera of Armored Saint (debut appearance), Jamey Jasta and on guitar Michael Angelo Batio. Plus via Skype guitar great Jason Becker. Jason’s story is remarkable and I am excited to have him on for a few minutes.

Thanks to all who came out to my live show Friday night in Battle Creek MI at The Music Factory. Thanks to Jeff Harris, his wife Buffy and his staff for being so cool to work with. Hope to be back soon. Next live shows this weekend with Don & Jim. We will be in Falls Church VA this Friday and Willmington DE this Saturday. Tickets and VIP meet & greet tickets available for both shows. Details on this sites home page. Come hang with us! I will have books and merch available as well at both shows.

I will be live on SiriusXM channel 39 TRUNKNation tomorrow 6-10P ET with music & talk that rocks. Guests TBA

    Top Five:
    Happy to see the consensus on “Hallowed Be Thy Name” as the greatest closer of all time.
    Surprised they missed “Raining Blood”, but at least the fan vote got it.
    Memorable closers I can think of also would include:
    Alice In Chains “Would?”, a song that took the band to new heights and Layne’s impending demise.
    Nine Inch Nails “Hurt”, an emotional ending to an album with a depressing theme.
    Type O Negative “Black No. 1”, I would have bet Don or Jim had this on their list
    Pantera “Planet Caravan”, Hey if a cover can win a Grammy, why not put one on a TMS Top Five Closer list
    Glad to see the Top Five back for every episode instead of just the occasional bit in the previous season.

    Really enjoyed this week’s TMS. Great to have guests from different styles of music to share their insights. Love the diversity that you guys have with your guests. That’s one of the things that makes the show so interesting. Looking forward to the remaining shows this season.

      Thanks! It was somewhat of an experiment but most loved it

  • JGoon on

    Eddie – I love you, but how could you not ask Marky Ramone about his time in Dust, what some consider the FIRST American Metal Band of all time?!?!? I was looking forward to hearing about it! They were just reissued in 2013! Great Stuff!!!

    • Eddie on

      I did, and we showed his albums with them, and it was cut out for time by my producer. Maybe it will go online in the bonuses. But it was discussed. Sadly much gets cut for time

    • JGoon on

      OK, I forgive you. I don’t forgive your producer.

    • Eddie on

      By the way I had Marky on my radio show for an hour to talk Dust when the albums were reissued

  • Jason Falkinham on

    Was really hoping someone put Rocket Queen on the Top 5 list…that song is just brilliant!

    How about some props for Steel Panther headlining a jam packed Wembley Arena on Saturday night?! Congrats boys!!
