Ace Frehley, Mark Farner and Marky Ramone to Guest on New Season of ‘That Metal Show’
The classic rock contingent will be well represented during Season 14 of That Metal Show.
As previously reported, Geddy Lee will put in an appearance during the season premiere Feb. 21, but the Rush frontman is far from the only guest set to expand the show's boundaries outside of merely metal. He'll be joined throughout the next run of new episodes by a list of classic rockers that includes Ace Frehley, Mark Farner of Grand Funk Railroad and Marky Ramone.
Promising "the most diverse season in the show’s history," a That Metal Show press release backs up that claim with a fairly eclectic assortment of upcoming guests that also makes room for John Petrucci of Dream Theater; members of Tesla, Thin Lizzy, Anthrax and Slayer; Zakk Wylde, Michael Schenker, Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss and Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali — and adds "Metal Modem" appearances from Motorhead and David Coverdale of Whitesnake.
Offering a dozen new episodes to be broadcast Saturdays at the show's new 9PM time slot, Season 14 of That Metal Show will also include an assortment of fan favorite segments, including “TMS Top 5,” “Rank” and “Take It or Leave It,” as well as “Stump the Trunk,” in which audience members test host Eddie Trunk’s rock knowledge for a chance to win a prize. Tickets for tapings, which take place Tuesday nights at Metropolis Studios in New York City, are available here.
The new season of That Metal Show continues a tradition that's been in place at VH1 Classic since 2008, and adds to a history that already boasts appearances from a long list of stars, including members of Black Sabbath, Van Halen, Metallica, Aerosmith, Pantera, Kiss, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Pearl Jam, Guns N’ Roses, Queensryche, Heart and others.
