Taime, Andy, and Mark Put It On The Table and realize when asked what the first song they ever learned was they all have a serious KISS connection and appreciation. Eddie struggles through Stump The Trunk this week marking the return of Ms. Box Of Junk Jen after he went three for three last week. This week’s Take It Or Leave It centers on the recent trend of band’s airing their grievances in public evidenced by the recent statements from Ozzy Osbourne and Bill Ward of Black Sabbath. They all agree that social media, and the ease for artists to share their sides of the story, is best for the fans.
Checking in via Metal Modem this week is founding Judas Priest member, KK Downing. KK fills the panel in on what he’s been doing since leaving Priest, talks about some upcoming projects, and unveils his new cologne line, Metal for Men. This week’s Throwdown pits the legendary Judas Priest releases British Steel against Screaming For Vengeance. When the panel deadlocks, they reach out to KK on the modem to give the definitive answer. No one argues with one of the creators of both albums when KK makes his pick.

They reminisce about the most hammered they have ever been while performing and Andy recounts the time he broke his ribs during a promo performance in Los Angeles.
