Former White Lion/Megadeth Bassist James Lomenzo To Run “The Amazing Race”

Well it looks like Reality Television is getting another shot of Heavy Metal because this time around James Lomenzo (the former bassist of White Lion and Megadeth) will be running “The Amazing Race” with his friend Mark Abbattista aka Abba (a lawyer). Perhaps this is the new trend because this is the second time an actual Metal personality of some kind of note will be participating in something like this. We most recently witnessed Jennifer Arroyo aka Miss Jenncity (former of Kittie) giving it her all on “Big Brother” (and I mused about that HERE).

Former Kittie/Suicide City Bassist Ms. Jenncity (Jennifer Arroyo) Will Be On “Big Brother”

I’m not too sure about how many of the PiercingMetal Musings blog readers are fans of Reality Television shows but there just might be a few of you out there and based on one of the participants on the “Big Brother” program this season I am posting a blurb blog note for you all to be aware of. It seems that the popular CBS television show is getting a dose of Metal this coming season by bringing Miss Jennifer Arroyo into the house. This will be the second “Metal Person” to compete with the first being Adam Poch who while I do not know personally, does know many of my Metal circle people. To my knowledge Jennifer will be the first musician of note to play.

Airing Tonight: “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” Season 7

“Oh Yeah”; “Oooooooooooh Yeah”; “Well alright”; Sorry for using one of Gene Simmons own trademark phrases during a KISS show but the A&E Network’s reality program “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” begins airing its seventh season tonight on the A&E Network. Are you still watching? Have you even started yet? If it’s the latter you best get onto Netflix or something to catch up with the world around you as you are missing out in some key happenings in The Demons life.

Airing Tonight: “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” Season 5

Gimme Five! Is what the KISS Fans and Reality Television Fans of the world are saying as the fifth season of “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” begins tonight on the A&E Network. Are you one of those viewers who picked up on this late or have you been here from the beginning?

The premise largely remains the same as the previous four seasons and in case you are just jumping on board I will avoid any previous season spoilers. I will say that it follows the life and times of Gene Simmons, musician and businessman along with his significant other Shannon Tweed and gives you an inside look into his happenings. It’s pretty fascinating to see what Simmons does to keep his name in the public eye and as I’ve mentioned in a previous season announcement post his kids are actually also a lot of fun as they are well rounded individuals too. Ciao for now my friends, I am once again trying to clear up some space on the tape that I record my shows on during the week so I can fit this on there. I went out A LOT this past week. It happens.
