1/19: AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO THE FANS OF “THAT METAL SHOW”

A message to the loyal fans of That Metal Show from Eddie, Jim & Don:

We are sorry to report that VH1 Classic will not continue to make any new episodes of That Metal Show. It has been an incredible run of eight years, roughly 125 episodes and some really cool specials. The global response to TMS has been simply amazing, and we will be eternally grateful for the support from the rock and metal fans that have showed us so much love. We truly would have never made it as long as we did without you! A huge thanks also to the great crews we had over the years both in NYC and Los Angeles, to our producer Jeff Baumgardner, and to all the executives at VH1. And finally, thanks to the hundreds of artists that joined us on our set, had fun with us, shared their stories and many, many laughs. From the biggest names in rock history, to the up-and-comers: we thank you all for being a part of it.

Of course we very much want to keep That Metal Show alive, and with the blessing of VH1 Classic, we’ve got the keys to the show and are currently searching for a new home. We’re not sure where we’ll land, but we hope to be back in our studio and your living rooms as soon as possible. In the meantime, keep an eye out for us on the road and come say, “Hello.”

Thank you for watching all these years, and we’ll keep you posted as soon as we have news to share.

imageIt’s been a damn bad year for MotorHead and now this. Losing former drummer Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor a couple of months ago. Lemmy having health issues for the past couple of years and now according to Eddie Trunk has passed away also. A formal news release coming tomorrow.

Lemmy was the real deal rock and roll star. He gave not two shits about public opinion and played life by his  own rules. He roadied for Jimi Hendrix back in the day. He was the first guest VJ to smoke on Mtv and blew off being chastised by it on the air (It’s on YouTube) He basically at the time said he is 42 years old and could do as he damn well pleased. He smoked two packs of cigarettes a day and drank a fifth of whiskey and he played the bass guitar and sang like a MoFo!

R.I.P. Lemmy. I will toast a beer in your honor tonight!

One of my favorite tunes!

Mick Mars Compares Motley to Britney Spears :(

Mick Mars-630-80It’s a damn sad world when hardly anyone out there playing music for a living can’t do it without the help of auto pitch and back tracks. Especially in “Rock Music”. The “Pop” people have been doing it for years and yes most teen kids are used to being spoon fed crap but in the rock world I have to ask “Who has the balls’? The balls to play it like you wrote it and not to a bunch of backing tracks of keyboards, vocals, guitar tracks etc. I mean didn’t attitude make a band? So what if they drop chords and screw up vocal lines, it keeps it real.

Mick Mars just called out his own band for doing it and yes, we have known that the powers that be have also been spoon feeding us a “LIVE” “rock and roll” show complete with “canned” everything from Motley Crue for years and years…Tommy Lee hasn’t even been playing the piano part on “Home Sweet Home”..It’s all fake…Motley Crue and a lot of other bands have been filling us up with fire, smoke and hot chicks to take our minds off the fact that they can’t even play what they wrote…

Remember when Milli Vanilli was laughed off the stage for such “fakery’? These days bands are “rewarded” with such crap…

The first time I actually heard a canned performance that I “caught” was at a concert with the christian rock band “White Cross’ back in the early 90’s. It was during the song “In the Kingdom”.  The band had finished the song and  you could here the song playing over the front house almost as loud as the band was…I so disappointed.

Hats off to Mick Mars for calling his own band out…

Here is Micks statement:

He tells Eddie Trunk (via Blabbermouth): “That’s a whole another story – that could get me in a lot of trouble. Let me put it this way: I’ll just say two words and you’ll know. Britney Spears.”

He continues: “I don’t like it. I have to say 60s and 70s  bands were my favorites because they were real. They just got up there and kicked it up. Made a mistake – so what? Sounded a little bit empty here or there – so what? It’s the bigness and rawness and the people that wrote the songs and presented them.

“I could put on a Motley CD and play with it all day long. I don’t want to do that.”
