The lineup for the Mitch Lucker Memorial Show Friday night (Dec. 21) was already pretty stacked, but the revelation that there would be surprise guests had many in the audience speculating who that might be. By the end of the night, Lamb of God's Randy Blythe, Machine Head's Robb Flynn and Soulfly's Max Cavalera had turned up to honor the late Suicide Silence frontman, making the show even more memorable.
No matter where your personal musical taste falls, you've got to give some serious respect to Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn. On Friday (Dec. 14), only a very short time after recovering from emergency hernia surgery, Flynn was hit in the family jewels by a New York City cab. After a four-hour hospital stay, Flynn rushed to the Roseland Ballroom to perform that night's set with his band, leading to an onstage diss in the direction of All That Remains for apparently refusing to switch set times despite Flynn's debacle.
It took a little longer than initially expected, but Machine Head made it back to the stage Monday night in Oakland. The band was forced to temporarily drop off their tour when Robb Flynn required emergency surgery for a hernia, and they planned to be back for a show in Portland, Ore., on Saturday night. However, a bus breakdown thwarted those plans, but they eventually returned to the stage in Oakland.
They say music comes from the soul, but we're not sure what part of Robb Flynn's aching, recuperating body that his determination comes from. The Machine Head vocalist is making good on his promise to rejoin the band's trek with Dethklok, All That Remains andBlack Dahlia Murder before its conclusion, revealing they'll be back on the bill as of this Saturday (Nov. 24) in Portland, Ore.
Has it really been 10 seasons of VH1 Classic's 'That Metal Show?' Yes, it has. Season 10 kicked off last night (March 31) with Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich and Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn as the guests on the gab fest. So one might say it was a Bay Area-centric episode. Ain't nothing wrong with that, as its one of the most metallic and fertile regions of the U.S.
