4/26: THAT METAL SHOW UPDATE, FASTER PUSSYCAT, SLAUGHTER, BLITZ, BVB AND MORE.
Amazing response again to last nights new That Metal Show with Ace Frehley, Mark Farner and Nita Strauss. Ace was hysterical as always and was cool seeing him Rank his Kiss albums. So many people loved Mark Farner as well. Really cool to see how the TMS audience has really embraced all the variety in this season. From new, to classic, to rock, hard rock and metal, we have featured it all and had more first time guests than ever and it’s been great. Two more shows to tape in our current season the next two Tuesday’s. This week it’s first time guests Mark Slaughter and from Black Veil Brides Andy Biersack, and from Faster Pussycat Taime Downe. On guitar for the first time Mike Orlando from Adrenaline Mob. That airs this Saturday. Then our season finale will feature Joe Elliott (unaired interview from when he joined us for our debut with Geddy Lee), Frankie Banali from Quiet Riot and Bobby Blitz from Overkill. Joining us on bass the return of the master Billy Sheehan! Also a good chance former Judas Priest guitarist KK Downing will Skype in on one of these final two shows! Two more weeks of new shows in what’s been a killer season. Thanks for watching. Replays all week on VH1C and see it online at www.thatmetalshow.vh1.com
Back live on SiriusXM tomorrow 6-10P ET on channel 39 TRUNKNation. In studio guests will include Faster Pussycat and Mark Slaughter.
I’ll be hosting M3 once again this coming weekend in MD. Tickets are still available. Congrats to all my winners here online in ET’s Box Office. I will be selling and signing books for an hour or so on Saturday. Follow my Twitter or listen for me to announce from the stage when I will be out on the grounds at the Chuck Levins Washington Music Center booth that will host me once again. Exact times TBA but it will be sometime Saturday later in the day likely. Both books will be available for purchase there as well and all merch stands will have my latest line of T Shirts available.
Yay! We want more Jennifer! And because Eddie thinks us fans are super keen neato, he will grant our wish! : )
It’s a shame Mark Farner is one of several artists who is essentially out there competing with the band he created. I’ve seen Mark in concert with his band a few times (2003 and 2008), and he puts on a great show full of GFR classics.
Maybe one day, somebody will organize a festival called “The Real McCoy” with Mark Farner, John Fogerty, Brian Wilson, Sebastian Bach, and Ace & Peter.
Kenneth: I love your festival idea and name for it. That would be awesome! Unfortunately, it would cost the promoter millions just in pay for the bands. If Gene and Paul gave a crap about what their American fans want, that’d be nice. And Mike Love needs to be slapped upside his head. But, great idea.
