Episode 4: Adrian Smith













Special Guest Guitarist: Michael Schenker

Unlike last week's (or should I say 'weak') self indulgent episode, this one was a great episode from start to finish with Adrian Smith of Iron Maiden fame. The episode here is exactly why I tune into the show in the first place. Adrian was entertaining, informative and knew how to carry a conversation. You don't even have to be a fan of Iron Maiden to even enjoy this one at all. Personally, I'm not a big fan of the band unlike some of my friends who are  h a r d c o r e  with them. My only exposure to Maiden over the years has been their videos, long form videos, Full Concerts and Documentaries that always air on VH1 Classic.

While watching this episode and listening to Adrian talk, I had a flashback and remembered that I in fact did have my own brush with Maiden back in High School when a friend of mine swapped albums with me for a week. I gave him like 3-4 KISS albums to check out and he gave me The Number of the Beast and Piece of Mind. Although I remember thinking both albums were pretty good, I just wasn't gaga over them because I was way into KISS at the time that I really didn't open myself up to "new" bands even though the albums I got at the time were a few years old already.

As much as I rag on Eddie, which I do a lot these days. This episode did produce a pretty touching moment when Michael gave him one of his guitars to keep, which was really cool. And to answer your question Eddie, 'yes, you are one lucky son of a  b i t c h '.

FYI, this episode is the front-runner for Episode Of The Year. I can definitely see myself watching this one again real soon.

I forgot to mention in my review about Michael. He played great, like he always does. But I haven't seen him in a long ass time and I was alarmed at how skinny and sickly he looked. He didn't look healthy at all.

awesome episode I am right there with you...I could watch a season with 25 episodes when it's this good...I know it's not always that easy to get good guests....but I thought from front to back this one was a lot of fun to watch....the top 5 probably should have been focused on Bruce albums.....the two early ones with Paul Included almost cut it off at the knees...but it's impossible almost to be a Maiden fan and NOT include those in the top 5...because they are that good....

Michael Schenker I thought was very tasty as the guest guitarist...and he didn't even have a PUNCHING bag!!  He looks **** great too...the guy has got to be 63 and he practically looks like a 16 year old playing the guitar...it's crazy....he gave Trunk that guitar which was a really nice little moment.....

Adrian was an awesome guest....and yeah man...just a solid solid episode...and I would actually watch this one again.....seasons back there were way more episodes I felt that way about. (many I'd watch 2 times back to back...because for whatever reason VH-1 classic runs the show from 10-11 and then again from 11-12)..the last 2 seasons not so many of the shows I'd ever watch again....)..but this I'd peep a few more times for sure.

it even inspired me to have a Michale Schenker day today!!  so it's coffee and then some MSG or UFO.

:)

I give it 5 stars...and 1 boner.  miss box of trunk looked extra hot in that tank top

:)

She's ALWAYS hot! But I've seen her in nothing but Rock Tee's. I'd like an episode or two with nothing on. Come on! I'm a loyal fan of the show. Reward me, damn it!

ah that's funny you thought he (Michael Schenker)  looked sickly...I thought he still looked like a young hungry rock star....not some fat bloated old dude who used to rock.

:)

thin to win!

MSG (Mcauley Schenker Group) - Gimme Your Love

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ilZvSQL7gc

Well, for me, this video shows what I call the definitive Schenker-look and the one I associate with him most. Here he looks like the bad ass Rockstar that he is. On TMS, he does not look healthy. Maybe I just have a different definition of "healthy".

since when has being a rock guitar god and being healthy looking been synonymous?

it's a stick thin build with the guitar consuming your body...you eat rock and roll.  not pizza.

:)

Ace Frehley in his prime, Jimmy Page in his prime....these weren't chubby dudes who people idolized....we wanted our legends of rock lean and thin...there's a saying that I actually do think has more deeper meaning than what's a face value.

'young and hungry' or 'hungry and driven'....your body size also relates to that....fat and satisfied....think about it.

:)

ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I prefer my Rockstars to be bloated with drumsticks in one hand and guitar in the other.

oh my god...that video and song are awful.  I was never into the Mcauley Schenker Group.

yikes.....man I was talking Michael Schenker Group....that sounds like a cross between Great White and Twisted Sister.

Michael Schenker (Guitar For The Practicing Musician)



It took me a while to find a decent shot of this cover. It's actually one of my all time favorite covers from Guitar For The Practicing Musician. Yep, I still have my copy in storage. I remember the day I bought it at Guitar Trader like it was 5 minutes ago. What was cool about that moment is that this particular issue came out 2 weeks before anyone else. Guitar Trader FTW!!! FYI, I've seen those videos before. But it won't stop me from watching them again.

You posted the video for Into The Arena, and I've posted the Tab to the song. Now go learn it!

check out the into the arena clip...it's better than the rock bottom one.

'into the arena'  is basically one solo after another

I was a slave to that mag and would buy it regardless, but the fact that it was packed with useful and fun stuff made it an instant winner for me. Hell man, it had Into The Arena, Suicide Solution, Life In The Fast Lane and Roxanne. Usually it was a song and maybe a 2nd one that was worthy. But NEVER 4 songs in the same mag!!!!
