That Metal Special with Vince Neil
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_04star.gif)


A pretty good retrospective as Eddie, Don and Jim take a look back at some of the wildest and craziest moments on That Metal Show. Also on board was a new interview with Vince Neil in Las Vegas. Good interview but kind of a "what is he doing now" type deal. Nothing ground breaking. I do have to call out Eddie, Jim and Don for misleading the viewers on one segment thought which did kinda pissed me off. They had set it up that they were going to find Jake E. Lee once and for all, which implies that we would get something along the lines of an interview or at least a soundbite. Not. They did find him, but they only used him as a prop for a gag they were doing. Cool to see him sure, but bummed that we got nothing else.

My favorite part of the entire Special was definitely the montage of all the Drummers, Guitar and Bass players over the years. They way they edited it together, it sounded like a really kick ass song. I also liked the very end of the episode when Eddie opens up the closet door to reveal.....

You just gonna have to watch it to find out what.

TMS returns June 1, 2013. It's about damn, f*cking time! Sheesh. With no news to be found anywhere, I was convinced that it had been cancelled.

Episode 1: Jason Newsted
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_04halfstar.gif)


Special Guest Drummer: Carmine Appice.

Boy, what a long wait in between seasons. You'd think with the no-budget the show has that they could churn these "seasons" out a bit faster. Well, I guess there was some method to their madness in why it took a little bit longer than previous years. For starters, we are looking at a brand new version of TMS. It's still the same, but it isn't. Right off the bat you will notice the new set. Gone is the 'at home feel, littered with rock memorabilia. In is a very hi-tech feel to the surroundings. Also adding to the new season are in fact some long overdue new segments, which were somewhat interesting.

With segments being introduced, that of course means that some of the "classic" segments had to go and the big one to bite the dust was TMS Top 5. I for one am glad this segment is gone for two reasons. One, their Top 5 List had become something of a joke. They had drained the well dry a few years ago and were just coming up with stupid list to fill the air time. The other reason why I'm glad the Top 5 is no more is that with this out of the way, it automatically takes away the ability for Eddie to whine about something. So, this is a good thing for the show and for me personally. The one negative about it being gone is that we no longer get to see Jennifer rocking her Metal T Shirts of choice to open the show.

As for Jason Newsted, I thought he was a fantastic guest and extremely humble. He has always been portrayed as surly and standoffish, especially since the days he left Metallica. During his stay here, I saw none of that. What I did see was a person that was gratefrul for what he did and embraces the past instead of trying to distance himself. Very cool. Great stories too. Carmine Appice was very good as the musical guest and kept things moving along quite nicely. Welcome back TMS. But please, show more Jen. She shouldn't be relegated to just carrying out a box for 30 seconds and then disappearing.

so the wait was a LONG time as Chiprocks1 said.   I love that metal show...it's something that at my age, and being someone who doesn't really go "out" much on the weekends...I look forward to and in a funny way kind of plan my night around leaving that gap of time open to watch it.

so the new stage, format etc.

I liked the old set better....I felt like it was more casual and just had kind of the vibe the original show established which was 3 friends in their room (in a Wayne's world kind of way) shooting the breeze about METAL and their favorite bands etc.

I was sad to see Jennifer getting less air time.  She's like the Vanna White of the show...and although I agree the top 5  list portion of the show was played out....it would be nice if she'd be on the show more than just for the box of junk.  I am sure she's pretty bummed about the demotion.  I'd be!

ok...so all the new segments....well they felt like segments.  I thought having 7 or 8 topics was just as bad an idea as the top 5 list...there's no real difference and it felt forced and kind of awkward.  None of them were interesting enough for me to even remember 6 days later...at least with their top 5 list I could go..."this weeks was this or that"

Jason was awesome and you know we already talked about it in person...he had one of the most amazing experiences in his life being in metallica for 13 years or 18...whatever is was....and then the worst experience ever having to quit when James just wouldn't let Jason do his side project.  His new music sounds great and I for sure want to get it.

I liked the show...(oh sorry Carmine was awesome.  He and his brother seriously need to get together on the pronunciation of their last name...because I am still not 100% sure if it's APISEE or APICHEE.

Dio would always refer to Vinnie as APISEE and for some weird reason Carmine always seems to go with the other.

He's great though and was playing awesome...I really like the guy.

so in summary.  Good show, not crazy about the new set, not crazy about the new segments....VERY happy to see them back, and I think the show is still totally awesome.....you're never going to please everyone (and I include myself in that everyone) so what the hell do I know?

and next week.

I can't stand Corey Taylor...seriously...slipknot is fine...I am not a fan though, and stone sour or whatever his other band is...I could care less about.

He has this weird ego....it's like "humble man ego"  I just think he seems kind of fake and like self important....time will tell his tale but for me....so far I've never really enjoyed the shows he's been on.

Maybe this week will change my mind.

not sure!

I'd give this first episode 4 out of 5.

Post by: Chiprocks1 on June 07, 2013, 08:42:24 pm
I'm okay with most of the new segments. They weren't embarrassing at least. Well, one of them was and it was the first new segment. Can't remember what the official title of it is, but its the one with the 'online interview' with Corey. This isn't a f*cking newscast, so stop with the idea of having "interviews" over the airwaves. That's what the show is for. Get on a plane, sit your ass in the studio and plug your wares if that's what you want to do. The 'Online' thing is lame. I did like the new segment Blitz Ellsworth. I think it's called "Something you didn't know about..." It's gonna take time for me to learn all the segments because they threw a lot at us right out of the gate. And yes, I prefer the old set. It had character. The new set looks like they are trying to appeal to the Facebook crowd. Why?

Episode 2: Corey Taylor & Josh Rand
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_04star.gif)



Special Guest Guitarist: Richie Kotzen


So, the TMS guys thought they could pull a fast one on the fans of the show with 'Metal Modem'. So lets get this straight, in episode 1, Cory is communicating from some far remote area on the planet because he couldn't "get away". He must have some serious connections in high places to land a concord so that he can miraculously show up on set for Episode 2. Dude, you guys are full of sh*t! Every fan of the show knows you tale 4 episodes per day for a week to wrap up an entire season. Cory's "remote location" was the f*cking Green Room behind the TMS set. Lying mother f*ckers! Get rid of that segment. It's garbage.

So, the TMS Top 5 returns! But if you were paying close attention to Jim you would have heard him say that they are only doing the Top 5 two times this year. Ugh. I kinda kinda like that it returned this time around for one reason and that was Don and Jim immediately bashing Eddie's list, which was a f*cking joke. Eddie made brown nosing an art form with him continually crawling into Richie's ass. Geeze man, have some self respect and stop blowing smoke into every guest's ass. The other reason I'm happy to see the Top 5 return was of course getting to see more of Jennifer. Yowzza!!

My Top 5 Underrated Guitar Players list is: 1. Jimi Hendrix 2. Eddie Van Halen 3. Randy Rhoads 4. Joe Satriani 5. Tiny Tim. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. Based on Eddie's criteria for what makes one underrated, this list is GOLDEN!! Okay, enough bashing. As for the rest of the episode, I liked it. I thought Richie did a great job as the guest and he was different than I thought he would be. I was expecting to hear those stale riffs and licks that most would have gone with. Instead, he gave some nice changes, ala Jimi. I dug the 'Origins' segment with Bumblefoot. This is already turning out to be my favorite new segment this season. But coming in close was the return of 'The Rant' segment by Jim which was f*cking awesome and funny!! More please. Now I'm curious to see just how bad Rock Of Ages is.

Michael Willy Schenker for the win!! Hahahahahahahaha. You learn something new every time on TMS.

Wrong guy dude.  Two different bands.

Will write more later  but the guy from the first episode is not the same person.

Title: Re: That Metal Show (Season 12)
Post by: boyinblack80 on June 12, 2013, 08:08:17 pm
I was having trouble remembering the band name.  It was Jamey from Hatebreed pretty sure.

Nice rant though.
Title: Re: That Metal Show (Season 12)
Post by: boyinblack80 on June 12, 2013, 08:19:54 pm
I thought the second episode in terms of format was better, they fixed sort of the rough edges and it flowed a little better....Top 5 was back.  I am not into Jennifer as a "hottie" just being honest she's about a 180 from the type of girl I am into...but I like her on the show...which says a lot for her.  She seems cool and I think having her there breaks things up.

Richie is a solid guitarist, so having him as the musical guest was super cool...drugs have taken their toll on the poor guy but he still plays great.

ok so Stone Sour and Corey Taylor.  I am going to sum this up in one quick paragraph.  Notice one thing...they can't talk about his music because it sucks.  No one gives a rats ass about Stone Sour....Slipknot gets a pass...only because they basically took the Korn concept and ran with it.  But seriously...the only thing they can talk about is the CD's go together and make a house??..well that's better than listening to it I bet.


The only OTHER thing they can talk to him about is who he knows...or hangs out with.

He's not horrible as a guest but I mean lets face the facts... he's filler...the other guy was basically wall paper...it's cool they are big fans of music but I mean...if you are going on a show, and 3 HOSTS can't even talk about your music...uhm...red flag...there's nothing to talk about

:)

3 out of 5.  I'd never watch that one again except as background noise while I surf e bay and basically ignore it.

Post by: boyinblack80 on June 12, 2013, 08:26:44 pm
I'll add too.  I did buy a copy of Richie's new album....I listened to a couple songs on youtube and it was GREAT.  So I have a copy of the Winery Dogs coming over from Japan right now...

would never think I'd buy a Kotzen album...but Billy Sheehan, and Mike Portnoy......telling you.

check out the songs...Richie can sing great and his playing is awesome.

You sure about that not being him? I haven't gone back to check it out, but I could have sworn they were one and the same. Anyway, get rid of the segment. It sucks. I don't like it and it takes away from the rest of the show ya know. You'd bang Jen in a heartbeat if you got the chance.

I did notice that nothing was said about his music, which I found somewhat strange. His interview was kind of all over the place with no clear objective other than telling stories about, as you mentioned, who he knows. Meh. Josh on the other hand was the complete opposite. I thought he was keeping quiet because he thought he'd break the boom mic if he spoke. Sheesh. Overall, I just found the episode to funny for lots of reasons. Jim's rant, them picking on Eddie, the fact that he doesn't know sh*t when it comes to Stump the Trunk. All of it made me laugh, which I was surprised at. More so than ever before.

Post by: boyinblack80 on June 12, 2013, 10:10:30 pm
you referred to him as Corey in your episode 1 review and I knew it was wrong then but didn't correct you.

It's Jamey Jasta from Hatebreed.  Basically Corey before Corey was Corey.

He's an East Coast singer they all love (not they as in TMS) but he's like a very popular guy for basically no good reason like Corey to the other 99% of the people who don't know or care about his band.

The witch has spoken.

Now go fetch Wolfie, I need to see Valerie.

Eddie claims to be a "Super KISS Fan". Put your money where your mouth is! Invite Vinnie Vincent on as the Special Guest Guitarist / Interview. Until that happens, he will always be a second rate KISS fan. Don't even bother asking Ace to be the Special Guest Guitarist. He won't do it. But Vinnie, he'd do it just knowing it would generate a lot of buzz for Mr. Howard Hughes.

sounds interesting. Eddie will still hate it. What's funny to me is I don't understand why everyone its Vinnie.  the guy hasn't been in the band in 25 years who gives a s*** let it go right?he was still a part of one of the greatest band ever give the guy a little respect for his history if nothing else.

The fact that he is a recluse and has been since the late 90's makes him even more of a fascinating person to watch. That and Boyz Gonna Rock of course. That alone makes him the perfect guest on TMS.

the concert I am watching the kiss sign has lights out on the first S and it looks tacky!!!  even during the first song of the set before they came out and dresta bunch of the light bulbs were broken or burnt out.  oh god here comes Gene's solo.  I kind of wish there was a few more older songs on the set its not bad but its a little lacking.  either that or play a ton of new s*** or stuff they never play live that would be pretty cool

Episode 3: Rex Brown & Sebastian Bach
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_04star.gif)

Special Guest Drummer: Vinny Appice


Well, it looks like the TMS Top 5 isn't a thing of the past. Somewhat contradictory to what they had said (only 2 would air). Anyway, they finally pull a Top 5 out of the hat that actually has some merit and worth talking about: Top 5 Comeback Albums. My Top 3: 1. KISS Creatures Of The Night 2. AC/DC Back In Black 3. Van Halen A Different Kind Of Truth. My criteria is a bit different from what the guys were using as the definition of a 'Comeback', which they are basing on record sales. For me it's strictly based on artistic reinvention. With Creatures, you have a band floundering in a sea of despair known as The Elder. With Back In Black you have a band seriously trying to establish where the band is going after losing Bon Scott and with Truth, you have a huge question mark about a singer that has seen his best days behind him and a guitar player circling the drain of being an alcoholic.

I like the new segment called 'Rank' wherein whoever the guest may be, are ask to put their Albums in order of Favorite to least Favorite. This is something every fan does at home with their favorite band and singers, so it only makes sense to have it on TMS as well. Tonight was of course putting Pantera's albums in order, given that Rex Brown was one of the guest on the show. Sebastian Bach was typical Sebastian Bach. Crazy, manic and all over the place. But that makes him fun to watch and his stories about Pantera was good. Vinny was great on the Drums.

Episode 4: Jake E. Lee & Rick Allen
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_05star.gif)



Special Guest Drummer: Vinny Appice

This episode was HUGE for me and was kind of like opening all your presents on Christmas morning. So why is it so? Namely because they manage to get Jake E. Lee on the show. This is a about as big as it gets in the metal world (save for Gene and Paul of course). Jake is basically a modern day version of Howard Hughes, who has become somewhat of a recluse for the past 20 years. The only sighting that I saw of Jake was his brief cameo in the TMS Special. But in this episode he is there to actually talk and it was great to hear what he had to say. Not only that, he has a new band coming out called Red Dragon Cartel, with a record currently in production. What a great name for a band huh? Red Dragon Cartel. Awesome name.

The other reason why I totally dig this episode was having Rick Allen on the show. He has always been a great interviee in pretty much everything I've seen him in and he didn't disappoint here either. He is fun to listen to as he has plenty to say. Very well spoken. Loved it when Rick joined Vinny on the drums. Would like to see more of that off-the-cuff spontaneity to the proceedings. Overall, a fantastic hour long show and definitely in my Top 5 episodes ever. Will be watching this one again real soon.

Now bring on Jake!! I can't wait to hear what he and the band will deliver.
Title: Re: That Metal Show (Season 12)
Post by: boyinblack80 on June 28, 2013, 10:44:40 pm
My favorite episode this entire season hands down...two classic interviews, to amazing people.

I started to write a review of the show before but honestly had forgotten most anything worth of note I'd say.  I love Sebastian Bach on these shows...he's always game to talk and is interesting...dude from Pantera was solid too...seemed like an ok dude.

:)

I'd give it a 3 out of 5....but again nothing really stayed with me after seeing it.

Jake E Lee looked like he had a lot of make up on his face...was kind of creepy because he was very tan on his neck and chest and then had this pancake kind of thing going on, with his face...he says his vice is drinking but he doesn't want to kill himself with it.

would love to hear his new band...Badlands was amazing (speaking of that...must find on LP!) but yeah he and Rick "Rocked It"

love the whole show...and was very happy watching it 2 or 3 times which I have!

5 out of 5 for me on this one...great show/

Did they give any hint when we can expect Red Dragon Cartel to drop? I know they are still in the recording studio and I would imagine it's a long way off. But after 20 years, I'm getting impatient waiting.

Episode 5: Scott Rockenfield & Todd La Torre (Queensr˙che) & Dave Mustaine
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_03halfstar.gif)


Special Guest Drummer: Carmine Appice

TMS definitely dropped the ball on this episode. This should have been a great episode, but it left me feeling like I got gypped because I'm left with the idea of what it could have been. So, TMS is going to have Queensr˙che on the show, but only decide to bring in two members, one of which I know absolutely nothing about other than previous bands he has been associated with. It's not that his and Scott's interview sucked. It's just that if the rest of the band is already there, especially Michael Wilton and Eddie Jackson, why the f*ck would you have them sitting in the audience? Seriously, this has to be one of the dumbest moves the show has ever done. So many questions, very few answers.

As for Dave Mustaine, I will say that his interview this time around was much better. It's still Dave, but you can get the sense that he was definitely more comfortable sitting there whereas before, as I remember it, he was a deer in headlights. Overall, it was a decent episode, but it's one that I will never bother re-watching again. FYI, I still hate the new segment 'Metal Modem'. Get rid of it. 3 1/2 Stars out of 5.
Title: Re: That Metal Show (Season 12)
Post by: boyinblack80 on July 02, 2013, 10:05:00 am
actually liked this episode quite a bit I thought it was fun and it felt very long.   30 minutes in I was amazed that I still had another half hour to go. As far as Eddie and Michael being in the audience they've never done that many interviews if any, so them not getting on stage to talk doesn't surprise me at all. They said during the interview that Geoff always did most of the interviews for the band so I'm not sure why you are surprised that they didn't come up to talk, when  they never have before for the band. Dave was cool and I really did like the episode I think the season shaping up to be one of the better seasons at first I didn't like the new format and the new stage but I think it actually is pretty good and feels very professional and yet still fun and spontaneous.  I'd give the show a 3.5 out of 5. I definitely would watch it again.

Huh, I just added Silent Lucidity to my personal practice sessions.

Coincidence... I don't think so.




OK, OK, this has nothing to do with what you guys are talking about.

Scott hasn't done much talking either. I just think this was the time to finally give voice to the others in the band with Geoff out of the picture. I wanted to hear their side of things and not so much from the new singer and how he "joined" the band.

again Chip  those guys have nothing to say, that's the point.  They HAD to put Scott up front and the new singer/

Chris Degarmo and Geoff were that band...those other guys are lawn furniture.

I am a HUGE Pink Floyd fan.  I like the first 3 or 4 Queensryhce records too..

Who is Queensryhce


Oh, oh, oh, yea, the band your talking about.  ;)


I get what your saying. I knew nothing and still know little about them. The first song I heard was Silent Lucidity. I've  checked one or two albums out. Uh, Silent Lucidity is not their normal style is it?

Episode 6: Tom Keifer & Rob Zombie & John 5

Special Guest Guitarist: Richie Kotzen

When I first saw who the guest were going to be on the show, the one I was most interested in hearing from was Tom. Unfortunately, he really didn't have much to say. It's been years since I last heard him in any forum and I figured he would have a wealth of things to talk about. My guess, based on how the show was edited, that the interview was longer, but they cut a lot of stuff out because it didn't add much of anything to the conversation. Even what we do get is short. Maybe that dreaded 'deer in headlights' syndrome that plagues first time guest on TMS.

Rob was interesting as always, but really didn't had much to the overall show. His interview went exactly as I knew it would. I wanted to hear more from John 5, but even he was relegated to the background for the most part. I did like Dee Snider's Origins. Richie was good on guitar. Overall the episode was just okay. Would I watch it again as a rerun? Probably not. 3 1/2 Stars out of 5.

Rob Zombie - Dead City Radio And The New Gods Of Supertown

For me, the best part about the episode was the video they played on TMS, which I didn't even know existed till now.

Episode 7: Scott Gorham & Ricky Warwick & Neil Fallon

Special Guest Guitarist: Jake E. Lee

A solid episode if not entirely memorable. It's not bad at all, it's just not something I would ever revisit again in the future. I was excited to see Jake playing guitar again, which I really haven't seen since his days with Badlands. I love the guy, but what he played on TMS wasn't his best. Far from it. But it was still cool to see him doing what he loves doing. I did like Jim's 'Origin' segment, which is now my fave new segment this season. Best moment of the entire episode of course was when Jake hands that guy a new Charvel Guitar during the 'Stump The Trunk' segment. Lucky bastard!!

Special Guest Guitarist: Jake E. Lee

I can't remember the last time I actually listened to Kix on a regular basis. It has to be early to mid 90's at least. I didn't even know they had gotten back together on tour. Will be interesting to see what they come up with on their new forthcoming album. That is if it ever happens. Shocking, but I actually liked Eddie's Origins segment. Overall, good episode. Entertaining. Just bummed that this was the last episode of the "season". So now the waiting begins for Season 13, which should arrive sometime in the year 2053.

Episode 6: Tom Keifer & Rob Zombie & John 5

I just heard the other day RZ take on Grand Funk's We're An American Band (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/music/great-videos/msg20991/#msg20991). Music wise I think they did a fantastic job. DID NOT CARE for Zombie's singing. IMO, completely ruined a solid stab at it.

Yep. So, what's your opinion for this season? For me, there really wasn't a memorable episode. Well, none that really stood out like in seasons past. Could the well be dried up now?

Post by: boyinblack80 on July 27, 2013, 09:32:49 pm
I liked I think episodes 2-5 and then the last one I just didn't care....the Tom Keifer one was fine....I still think there's one more for some odd reason...maybe I am wrong...I'll see tonight/

They need to get Eddie, Alex and Dave on the show. I would include Wolfie because it would probably be the only way that Eddie would do it if his kid wanted to do the show himself. A Van Halen episode.....now THAT would be one to tune in for. And then somewhere in the middle of the episode, have Mikey walk out and punch Eddie and Alex, high five Dave and then jump up on the mini stage and do a bass riff before hightailing it out of the studio. THAT's how you do TV, b*tches!!
