Motorboat 2015: Day 2 – Motorhead, Beach Wars, Suicidal Tendencies, Slayer + More
Without recovering from the first day at sea, day two was in full swing as Motorboaters woke up in sunny Bahamas near the Great Stirrup Cay Island.
Some of the most fun happened on the beach as bands Huntress, Kyng, Fireball Ministry and The Dead Deads had meet and greets with fans. The real party kicked in as the infamous Beach Wars took place, as the team captains of four groups just happen to be led by the wacky and hilarious members of Crobot. Various teams included fans and none other than members of both Kyng and Santa Cruz. It was smiles and laughs all through a very memorable game of Beach Wars.
Female band the Dead Deads brought the heat with their memorable performance. The group had limitless amounts of energy and charisma. The Dead Deads are not to be missed on land or at sea! Another beach performance included Alabama rock act Dark Before Dawn later in the day.
Back on the Norwegian Sky ship, Corrosion of Conformity took hold of the Deck Stage as they performed for their second time on the cruise. Slayer guitarist Kerry King and drummer Paul Bostaph were on the Deck Stage to answer some fan questions for their Slayer Q&A hosted by Sirius XM’s Jose Mangin.
Fans had a photo session with Motorhead in the very elegant Outrigger Lounge. Lemmy Kilmister was equipped with his orange juice and vodka as well as a miniature Lemmy doll by his side. The band smiled and spoke to each other as numerous fans were excited to see these legends up close and personal and have their photo taken with them.
In the Stardust Theater, Suicidal Tendencies gave a completely crushing and unforgettable experience; fans went wild during their performance and rightfully so. With over 30 years of music, Mike Muir and his gang still got it and their deliverance of their timeless in-your-face anthems are unmatched. Slayer performed their second consecutive crushing set in the Stardust Theater.
Over in the Dazzles Lounge (yes it’s called Dazzles), The Shrine, Kyng and Crobot consecutively rocked ear drums as hard and loud as they could. Back on the Deck Stage, Exodus delivered their second pulverizing set along as did Phil Campbell and his all-star band which included his talented kids who cranked out various rock hits. Speaking of all-star bands, Motor Sister happens to include Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian, his wife and vocalist Pearl Aday, Mother Superior frontman Jim Wilson, bassist Joey Vera (Fates Warning, Armored Saint) and drummer John Tempesta (White Zombie, The Cult). The band performed their first set to “end” the night on the Deck Stage. Let’s be honest the night didn’t end there, Motorboaters partied until the wee hours of the morning!
