David Coverdale and Marky Ramone to Guest on ‘That Metal Show’
Coverdale recently announced that Whitesnake's upcoming album will focus on his mid-'70s tenure in Deep Purple. This will be Whitesnake's first studio work since the departure of guitarist Doug Aldrich, who joined the band in 2002. Whitesnake advanced the Purple Album with a new take on "Stormbringer," originally the title track from a 1974 Coverdale-era Deep Purple project. A lengthy tour has also been announced, with more dates to come.
Marky Ramone joined the Ramones in 1978, in time to contribute to albums like that year's Road to Ruin (home to the ageless "I Wanna Be Sedated") and 1980's End of the Century, among others. He is the only surviving '70s-era member of the group.
McDaniels, meanwhile, is probably best known in classic-rock circles for his collaborative work with Run-DMC on a rap update of Aerosmith's classic "Walk This Way." That version was a huge hit in 1986, becoming the first hip-hop song to hit the Top 5 and reviving Aerosmith's flagging commercial fates.
That Metal Show, hosted by Eddie Trunk with Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine, airs at 8PM ET Saturdays on VH1 Classic. Gary Holt and Joel Hoekstra will also appear. Geddy Lee was a guest on the 2015 season premiere a couple weeks ago. Def Leppard's Joe Elliott and Anthrax have also stopped by this year.
