Earlier in the year, VH1 Classic gave us a brand new program that was dedicated to “all things Hard Rock and Heavy Metal” and it was hosted by radio personality Eddie Trunk and called “That Metal Show”. He is joined by co-hosts Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine who are both comedians. Tonight begins the second season of the program and I’ve used the blog to showcase the occasional television or film subject that works in our readers interest so let’s continue the practice and herald stuff like this.
As with the first season, the show remains at a half hour so its over before you know it (well at least it feels that way to me when I sit down to watch it). The segments of “Stump The Trunk” and “The Throwdown” will return for the sophomore season and the publicized guests are as follows. Please check your local listings for the airing times/dates.
1 – Pantera: Vinnie Paul
2 – Anthrax: Frank Bello
3 – Extreme: Nuno Bettencourt and Gary Cherone
4 – Anvil: Steve “Lips” Kudlow and Robb Reiner
5 – Guns N’ Roses: Duff McKagan
6 – Queensrÿche: Geoff Tate
7 – Thin Lizzy: Scott Gorham
8 – Heaven & Hell: Ronnie James Dio and Geezer Butler
9 – That Metal Show Presents: Download Festival ’09 Tommy Lee, Slipknot, Hatebreed, Tesla, Mike Portnoy, Buckcherry, Duff McKagan, Tim “Ripper” Owens and many others
