Special: Axl Rose and DJ Ashba



Special Guest Guitarist: Bumblefoot

Boy, the people at VH1 Classic really went out of their way to make 11.11.11 (also my Grandma's Birthday) a true Metal Day by going out and getting the biggest fish out there...Axl Rose. The format for this episode is different from what it usually is. Eddie, Jim and Don for years have been trying to get Axl to come on That Metal Show and it never worked out. So, instead of waiting for Axl to come to them, they decided to head to Miami where Guns 'N Roses were performing in the US for the first time in 5 years.

The gang was unsure of how this would all play out and really didn't know if they were going to actually be able to snag an interview with the man himself. The interview itself seemed at bit stiff at the start, but once it got rolling, Axl loosened up and became a fun and jovial, the complete opposite of what I was expecting. I really didn't know what to expect. I'm pretty sure the last "interview" of his that I saw was immediately after the MTV Music Video Awards debacle backstage with Kurt Loder.

Eddie touched on some things that I found interesting, namely the upcoming nomination into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. It was Axl that brought up the situation of who would the Hall be expecting to show up: the original line up or the current line up? I can answer that for you right now. ORIGINAL! Duh! Another interesting thing that Axl talked about was music videos and he hinted at the possibility of making some for Chinese Democracy. I've never heard of a band or singer entertaining the idea of making music videos for an album that's almost 4 years old. Overall the interview was entertaining, but Eddie, Jim and Don really didn't ask the one question that we all wanted to here; Reunion possibility, although they did touch upon his mini-reunion with Duff McKagan and that they are suppose to be doing something in the future together. Interesting.

DJ Ashba was also on the set, but added nothing at all. Why he was there, I have no idea.

Like I said, different format for this episode, so there was no TMS Top 5, Stump The Trunk or the Throwdown. But the biggest omission was that of Jennifer Leah Gottlieb. Call me if your reading this, Jen.

I'm still waiting for the episode to be put up on VH1 Classic. It's always up 2 days after the original air date. So, I'm wondering if there is some behind the scenes issues as to why it's still not up, almost a week after the fact. I will post the episode if and when it's up. The episode I watched was on YouTube and it's already been taken down.

UPDATE:

I'm guessing the reason why the "episode" is posted in the way it is has to do with it not technically being part of TMS Series, but in that it's more of a Special Presentation. So, I have renamed it accordinally.

The Axl Rose episode is up on VH1 Classic now, but it's not posted in the usual way as before. For whatever reason, they have decided to post the episode in Act Breaks. So if you go to the Episode Index link at the top of this thread and click on it, you will be given a list of videos to check out. The Axl episode in question is under the header of Show Clips and NOT Full Episode. I really don't know why they are going back to the old way of posting. It makes no sense to me at all.

Episode 1: Slash and Sam Dunn



Glenn Hughes


Jennifer Leah Gottlieb


Eddie Trunk & Slash


Don Jamieson


Slash


Sam Dunn


Jim Florentine


TMS Panel

Special Guest Bassist: Glenn Hughes

First off, I gotta give mad props to Glenn Hughes for sitting in. No disrespect to Billy Sheehan, but Glenn pretty much schooled him in the art of laying down a groove with a melody that makes you want to get up and dance....or bang you head. It's cool to see people come on and rip through solos, but I prefer to see and hear someone bring some ballsy grooves to their playing.

Slash and Sam both were great sitting in for their interviews. Slash touched up on the fact that they may be getting into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and what could happen as far as who would show up. Sam for those that don't know is the filmmaker behind Metal Evolution, which is VH1 Classic's current documentary on what else, Heavy Metal and all it's sub-genres.

Before I get to the Top 5 List, I gotta mention the start of this episode had a segment devoted to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, Shame and who the current singers and bands are for this years nominations. It's mind boggling the list of snubs. Yikes.

TMS Top 5 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Snubs

1. Deep Pruple
2. KISS
3. Rush
4. Judas Priest
5. Ronnie James Dio

My Top 5

1. KISS
2. Judas Priest
3. Ronnie James Dio
4. Def Leppard
5. Bon Jovi

Whatever happened to: Blas Elias. Intersting to find out the former drummer for Slaughter has been playing as part of the Blue Man Group in Vegas for the past 6 years. I did not know that. Interesting.

The Throwdown: Which Album is better: Use Your Illusion 1 or Use Your Illiusion 2

Slash and Sam picked UYI1

Eddie, Don and Jim picked UYI2

I picked UYI2

Audience picked the eventual winner: UYI2

Episode 2: Brian Johnson



Warren DeMartini


Jen rocking the AC/DC shirt. Yowzza!



Brian Johnson


TMS Panel


Jim Florentine & Dave Mustaine




Special Guest Guitarist: Warren DeMartini

Best. Episode. Ever! Seriously, this was an awesome 1 hour that flew by way too fast. Brian Johnson from AC/DC is just a really cool dude with great stories to tell. And every single one of the stories we get was awesome and in most cases extremely funny. I don't think I have smiled more and laughed harder at the stuff he was talking about. "You know you like it". You will have to watch the episode to get that joke. Trust me, it's well worth it.

Props to Warren for mixing up his style of play and not just doing speed runs the entire night.

TMS Top 5 Replacement Singers

1. Brian Johnson
2. Sammy Hagar
3. Ronnie James Dio
4. Bruce Dickinson
5. Joey Belladonna / Ripper Owens

For the first time ever on TMS, the guys finally put up a Top 5 that I agree with. This is actually a Top 5 I've had for years. It's really an easy list to put together when you think about it.

Awesome walk-on by Dave Mustaine during the Stump The Trunk segment.

The Throwdown: What is the best Bon Scott album?

Brian, Jim and Don picked Powerage

Eddie, myself and the audience picked Highway To Hell

I'm in such a AC/DC mood right now, I'm gonna watch them live as I work tonight. I'm going with AC/DC: No Bull (Live in Madrid - 1996)

Episode 3: Dave Mustaine, Vinny Appice and Rex Brown



Warren DeMartini


Jennifer Leah Gottlieb


Don, Jim & Eddie


Dave Mustaine


Vinny Appice & Rex Brown


Special Guest Guitarist: Warren DeMartini

This was a really odd episode and I lay the blame solely on Eddie Trunk. He needs to conduct himself in a more professional manner. I don't tune in to watch him whine, b*tch and moan about every perceived "injustice" that is leveled against him. He has been doing this more and more lately and it's really starting to irritate the hell out of me. He should know better that Jim and Don are just pushing his buttons regarding his Top 5 candidates. The audience is in on it, but clearly he is not and takes everything far to serious. Also, he needs to stop complaining about the questions he gets wrong during the Stump The Trunk segment. Man up and take your medicine dude. Sheesh.

The rest of the episode with interviews with Dave Mustaine, Vinny Appice and Rex Brown felt flat and uninspired. It just wasn't that good of an episode all around. The Top 5 Music Videos is just weird. Eddie says that it's all the videos out there, and that his definition of what should make it on the list is a video that pushed the envelope. So, by his standards he should be putting Michael Jackson's Thriller somewhere on the list. All his video's that he chose did not in anyway redefine the medium. I get this is a Hard Rock/Metal show. But he needs to set clear specifications for what each list represents so that there is no wiggle room.

TMS Top 5 Music Videos

1. Twisted Sister - We're Not Gonna Take It
2. Guns N' Roses - November Rain
3. Megadeth - Sweating Bullets
4. Metallica - One
5. Van Halen - Hot For Teacher

My Top 5

1. Guns N' Roses - November Rain
2. KISS - I Love It Loud
3. Motley Crue - Girls, Girls, Girls
4. Guns N' Roses - Welcome To The Jungle
5. AC/DC - You Shook Me All Night Long

The Throwdown: Which Megadeth Album Is Better? Peace Sells or Rust In Peace?

Dave, Vinnie, Rex and Don picked Peace Sells

Eddie, Jim and audience picked Rust In Peace

I picked my nose.

Episode 4: Marilyn Manson And Biff Byford



Chris Broderick


Marry me Jennifer!!!



Biff Byford & Marilyn Manson

Special Guest Guitarist: Chris Broderick

If it weren't for Biff Byford of Saxon, this episode would have gotten a 3 Star rating. It's not that Marilyn Manson was bad. He was just kinda all over the place. But when he was able to zero in and focus on a topic, he was very informative. I knew they would eventually touch upon the whole Columbine tragedy and it was interesting to hear how the media can spin anything any way they want, even though it was common knowledge that the kids themselves were not even fans of MM.

Biff, man he's gotten old. When they did the From The Vault segment and pulled out an 80's interview from MTV, you see just how much has changed over the years. Very entertaining inteview on his part. Marilyn was practically stepping on Biffs toes by highjacking the conversation just so that he could lavish praise on him.

TMS Top 5 Concept Albums Of All Time

1. Alice Cooper - Welcome To My Nightmare
2. Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime
3. Judas Priest - Nostradamus
4. Marilyn Manson - Antichrist Superstar
5. King Diamond - Abigail

My Top 5

1. Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime
2.
3.
4.
5. KISS - Music From The Elder

Look, off the top of my head, I only own 2 albums that I would consider Concept albums, and KISS at the #5 spot is being very generous.

The Throwdown: Which Saxon album is better?  Strong Arm Of The Law or Denim and Leather

Marilyn, Biff, Jim, myself and Audience picked Denim and Leather

Eddie and Don picked Strong Arm Of The Law

Episode 4: Sully Erna And Jesse James Dupree



Glenn Hughes


Jennifer Leah Gottlieb


Sully Erna


TMS Panel with Jesse James Dupree & Sully Erna




Special Guest Bassist: Glenn Hughes

Coming off the past couple of shows, this was more like the good old days where guest are happy, articulate and actually have stuff to say that we want to hear. Both Sully and Jesse were good here and had plenty to talk about and they came across like they were having fun being there on the show. That was the good part of the show.

Having said that, this weeks TMS Top 5 was weak or better yet, an EPIC FAIL on all accounts. The topic was which are the top 5 90's hard rock bands that got their start in the 90's. Sorry, but when Jim, Don and Eddie fail to mention TOOL on any of their respective list, they need to turn in their Metal card. Since they did such a horrible job in putting their list together and making excuses for who is in and who is out, I'm gonna do the same here and add NIN to the list, even though their debut was in 1989. Hey, my list...my rules.

TMS Top 5 90's Bands

1. Alice In Chains
2. Marilyn Manson
3. Black Label Society
4. Rage Against The Machine
5. Type O Negative

My Top 5

1. TOOL
2. NIN
3. Stone Temple Pilots
4. Alice In Chains
5. Rage Against The Machine

The Throwdown: Which is the best Iron Maiden album with Paul Di'Anno? Iron Maiden or Killers?

Sully, Don and Glenn picked Iron Maiden
Jesse, Eddie and Jim picked Killers

The audience to my ears was split evenly between the two. So, it's a tie.

Episode 6: Tracii Guns and Michael Monroe



John 5


Tracii Guns


Michael Monroe

Special Guest Guitarist: John 5

This was an awesome show from top to bottom. Both Tracii and Michael were engergetic and had lots to say, especially Tracii who laid it all out there with regards to Guns N' Roses and his current dustup with his former drummer Steven Riley from LA Guns. We also get some news about his new singer, who just so happens to be a chick that will be fronting his version of LA Guns. I'm very interested to check out what Dilana can bring to the old classic songs. You will recognize her if you ever watched Rock Star: Supernova from a few years back.

Michael hasn't changed a bit for the most part. He still looks exactly the same, 25 years later. Scary. Props to John 5 who absolutely OWNED TMS with his fret work. Insane. He was clearly enjoying himself on the show. Eddie is still whining, but I was okay with it only because Don and Jim kept making fun of him which is basically their way of telling him to shut the phuck up. Hahaha.

TMS Top5 Driving Songs

1. Deep Purple - Highway Star
2. Saxon - Wheels Of Steel
3. Judas Priest - Heading Out To The Highway
4. Sammy Hagar - I Can't Drive 55
5. Dio - I Speed At Night

My Top 5

1. Sammy Hagar - I Can't Drive 55
2. Deep Purple - Highway Star
3. Judas Priest - Heading Out To The Highway
4. Dio - I Speed At Night
5. Saxon - Wheels Of Steel

The Throwdown: Who's the scariest Hard Rocking Dude - Kerry King or Zack Wylyde?

Michael picked Zack while the rest of the panel went with Kerry. The audience voted and it came out a tie. Personally I think Phil Collen in Girl is the scariest.

UPDATE:

I checked Wiki to find out that Dilana lasted all of 71 days in LA Guns before being replaced. Well, that didn't last long at all. Oh well............

Thanks so much! Glad you like the video. Please feel free to share. They were both incredibly nice and besides letting me shoot the whole show from the audience as well as inviting me up onstage, they let me interview them for over an hour. I can put your email on the contact list to see a clip of the interview. Since they split, they don't want me releasing it publicly.
Either way, thanks!

Dude, the video phucking kicks ass. You did a phenomenal job on it. Definitely add me to the list as I would love to check out the interview. Sucks that she is no longer in the band anymore. It had a lot of potential for sure.

Hope you don't mind, but I centered your video in the last post.

Episode 7: Paul Rodgers and Buckcherry



John 5


Jen


Paul Rodgers


Josh Todd & Keith Nelson


Special Guest Guitarist: John 5

Another fantastic show, which would have gotten a perfect 5 Star rating if not for another round of whining by Eddie Trunk. Why does he think that he has to right to belittle both of Jim and Don's picks as being inferior to his? Don and Jim each week overall have picked better choices than anything he has and all he is doing is embarrassing himself with his little tantrums. Props to both Don and Jim latching onto Eddie's remark about "It took me on a journey...." and making a joke out of it. Funny stuff.

As for the rest of the episode, Paul Rodgers was a very fun guest with lots to talk about from Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin and Jimmy Page and of course his time with Queen. Josh Todd was right in saying they should do the entire show with just Paul. I agree. Although I'm a fan of Buckcherry and they did a good job on the show, I would have been okay with more Paul on That Metal Show.

TMS Top 5 Album Openers

1. KISS - Detroit Rock City
2. Judas Priest - The Hellion/Electric Eye
3. Iron Maiden - Ides Of March/Wrath Child
4. Black Sabbath - Neon Knights
5. Accept - Fast As A Shark

My Top 5

1. Guns N' Roses - Welcome To The Jungle
2. AC/DC - Highway To Hell / Hells Bells (Tie)
3. Mötley Crüe - Wild Side
4. NIN - Head Like A Hole
5. KISS - Detroit Rock City

The Throwdown: Who is the best guitar player that Paul Roders has work with? Jimmy Page, Brian May or Paul Kossoff

John 5, Josh, Eddie and Don chose Jimmy Page
Paul and Keith chose Paul Kossoff
Don chose Brian May
I chose both Jimmy and Brian. Can't pick one over the other.

The audience chose Jimmy Page as the winner. It was cool to have John 5 sitting in on the panel for the Throwdown. I can't recall them ever bringing down the Special Guest Guitarist or Bassist to sit in before. They should do that every time if you ask me. FYI, John 5 OWNED it again tonight.  He makes his playing look so effortless.

Episode 8: Herman Rarebell & Andrew 'Dice' Clay



Chris Broderick


My future Ex-Wife



Andrew 'Dice' Clay & Herman Rarebell


Special Guest Guitarist: Chris Broderick

That was the most entertaining episode all "season" and it's all because of Herman and Andrew more or less hijacking the show and leaving Don, Jim and Eddie sitting on the sidelines waiting to get a word in edgewise. Herman was extremely engaging and full of life. He absolutely had a blast being on the show which is exactly what I want to see and he came through in spades. When I first heard that Dice was going to be on TMS, I really wasn't sure what to think. I kinda knew that he would do his comic bit that he does. Well, he was awesome with his reactions and answers. I wouldn't object to seeing him return to the show in the future.

TMS Top 5 Double Albums (Live or Studio)

1.  Led Zeppelin Physical Graffiti
2.  KISS Alive!
3. UFO Strangers In The Night
4. Aerosmith Live Bootleg
5. Iron Maiden Live After Death

My Top 5

1. Ozzy Osbourne / Randy Rhoads Tribute
2. KISS Alive!
3.  Led Zeppelin Physical Graffiti
4.  KISS Alive II
5. Aerosmith Live Bootleg

The Throwdown: Which is bette - Scorpions Tokyo Tapes or Scorpions World Wide Live?

The audience chose World Wide Live as the winner. Duh.

Final thoughts on this "Season". Stop calling these 'Seasons' for the sake of making it sound like you have been around for years and years. A Season in TV Land is something that happens once in a calendar year. Not 3 times. Ugh.
