Hey my Metal fiends, its once again time to fire up that DVR programming if you plan on going outside somewhere this evening because tonight will be the second chapter in the “Metal Evolution” series that is currently airing on VH1 Classic. I say it like that since I will be hitting the Mastodon show at Terminal 5 in NYC but don’t worry if you are not going to that. I will have a lot of photos and a story for you to enjoy on this very site soon enough. Tonight’s episode focuses on “Early Metal – US Division”.
In This Episode: Metal morning in America begins with the clank of cars and guitars and the burning of draft cards, Detroit Rock City being home to the likes of Ted Nugent & The Amboy Dukes, The Frost, Iggy & The Stooges and the explosive MC5. (as taken from Wikipedia)
Being an American fan of the genre that crushes I am intrigued to see how they relate a lot of what I grew up loving against some of these earliest influences. Any show that has Uncle Ted Nugent and Iggy Pop in it clearly is on the right track. What do you think?
As there are a number of great films about Metal music and its larger celebrities, I created a code widget in Amazon.com to let you peruse a few solid recommendations. Dig in.
