Hope everyone had a great weekend and enjoyed the new TMS. We are bringing more variety than ever on the show this season and it’s been lots of fun. Had old school 80’s hard rock with Frank Hannon who really pulled out all the stops including a theramin! Then new school hard rock with Taylor Momsen who is a huge emerging young artist with her band The Pretty Reckless. Then Mark Tremonti who has made two albums now under his own name that are amazing and heavy as hell (unreal drumming too from Garret Whitlock). Was also please to find a few minutes to remember AJ with the TS guys. The show was already fully booked so we didn’t have much time, but at least we were able to do something. Show repeats all week on VH1 Classic and online at www.thatmetalshow.vh1.com Check the many outakes and extras online too!

We tape this weekends episode tomorrow in NYC. Another jam packed show loaded with variety! Chris Jericho is back, and for the first time Max Cavalera and Billy Corgan are guests as well. No idea what will happen in this one, should be a free for all. Rich Ward plays guitar for the first time. So many have asked for new and classic artists and a wide variety on TMS and I am pleased to see so many into us mixing it up like this.

Fighting a virus but will be in live tonight 6-10P ET on SiriusXM 39 TRUNKNation. Wendy Dio and Joey Tempest of Europe (great new album) among the guests.

Don’t forget I am at BB Kings NYC with Don & Jim and Van Halen tribute Unchained this Wednesday night! Join us for comedy, Q&A and more. We start 8P sharp, tickets and VIP tickets at the door. I am solo at Crossroads in Garwood NJ 4/10 with Randy from Zebra and Edgar Cayce!

    I thought that was very classy and touching of Frank Hannon to play “Amazing Grace” as a tribute to AJ. I bet there were some tears in that studio right there.

      Their have been numerous, amazing performances from the guest guitarists over the years on TMS, but I thought Frank’s tribute to AJ was the best ever. Simple, sweet and heartfelt.

    Ed, I really like the mixing it up this season with new, classic, and some who are on the periphery of metal such as Corgan. But this tribute band phenomena is getting to be quite an epidemic. I’m sure there is a Billy Corgan tribute, soon there will be a Pretty Reckless tribute if there isn’t one already, there are tribute bands left and right who play big shows that should be allocated to original artists. For God’s sake WeezHur played the House of Blues in TX complete with a Rivers Cuomo lookalike. Where is the dignity of these people who impersonate someone else for money?

    Weezer would be a cool guest for your show.

  • Jason Falkinham on

    Can you please commend Jericho for his brilliant recording with Michael Starr on the new album?!

  • Mr. Rock And Roll on

    Since there’s a hodgepodge of various styles of hard rock/rock/metal on TMS, PLEASE please pretty (reckless) please bring on Noddy Holder from Slade. The stories he could tell.
