After making its debut in late 2008, 'That Metal Show' quickly became one of VH1 Classic's most popular shows. Nearly every big name in hard rock and classic metal has made an appearance on the program, which will begin taping their 12th season later this month in Los Angeles. Hosts Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine all return for the new season that premieres June 1.
There's no doubt that Metallica love Motorhead, and now there's some additional video footage to prove it. Back in 1995, the Metallica members, decked out in long black-haired wigs, took the stage at Los Angeles' Whisky-a-Go-Go to play a set of Motorhead songs in honor of Lemmy Kilmister's 50th birthday. Now, the famous venue has just posted video from the performance on YouTube.
Now that the world's loudest band has released their own signature brand of headphones, Motorhead are looking to take down rapper Dr. Dre and his 'Beats' empire.
Frontman Lemmy Kilmister himself presented the new headphones this week in Las Vegas at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
Along with introducing the headphones, Lemmy offered some priceless quotes while answering questions at a Motorheadphones press conference.
The all-star covers band Camp Freddy took to Los Angeles' Roxy just prior to the holidays for three nights of surprise guests and killer covers that left audiences rocked to the core. With a base of singer Donovan Leitch, guitarists Dave Navarro and Billy Morrison, bassist Chris Chaney and drummer Matt Sorum, Camp Freddy puts on a great show as is, but the surprise guests are usually what makes the gigs fun.
In a cavalcade of legendary musicians, the 2009 action-adventure game Brutal Legend features a beastly amount of vocal cameos. Although the game's main character Eddie Riggs (named after Iron Maiden mascot Eddie the Head) is voiced by Tenacious D's Jack Black, that's only the beginning of Brutal Legend's killer lineup.
This is how 'Toy Story' should have been made: Instead of a tale about childhood toys trying to find their way home, the film could have been about Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister drinking whisky with Buzz Lightyear and corrupting their owner's mind with pure rock 'n' roll. Apparently, someone out there shares our sentiments, proven by this creation of a Lemmy Mr. Potato Head.
With Election Day taking place in the United States tomorrow (Nov. 6), Barack Obama vs. Mitt Romney is getting exponentially more heated. As one of the few subjects that truly divides groups of human begins into two halves, politics constantly draws passionate statement from people of all backgrounds. One of those backgrounds happens to be playing bass and providing vocals for Motorhead, with the legendary Lemmy Kilmister offering his two cents on the election.
Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister defeated Anthrax's Scott Ian in the first round, and took out Metallica's James Hetfield in the quarterfinals of the President of Heavy Metal election. Fans of Lemmy have been coming out in droves to support their gravel-voiced hero, but in this next round, Lemmy has yet another maniacal fan base to defeat.
