VH1 Classic’s centerpiece in original programming, That Metal Show, returns this week for its fifth episode of Season 13 on Saturday, February 15th at 11 PM, ET/PT. The acclaimed hard rock/heavy metal talk show, hosted by Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson, and Jim Florentine, features Myles Kennedy and Mark Tremonti of the hard rock juggernaut, ALTER BRIDGE. Myles and Mark have both been on “TMS” individually, but not together as Alter Bridge.
In this episode, Myles and Mark discuss their latest album Fortress, the upcoming Alter Bridge tour, and what’s next for them in terms of their side and solo projects.
This week’s episode also includes singer-songwriter, MATT NATHANSON, who easily proves he can hang with the big boys of hard rock/heavy metal demonstrating he is a true fan of the genre. Matt talks about growing up a huge fan of both KISS and DEF LEPPARD, and why he decided to don a That Metal Show t-shirt when he performed on The Tonight Show. Matt also proudly admits he performed 'Highway to Hell' in a church in Austin, Texas, and in Perth, Australia, near the resting place of AC/DC’s Bon Scott.
The episode also features TRIXTER’s guitarist Steve Brown donning his axe as the guest musician for the latest episode, a “Metal Modem” segment connecting us with hard rock legends SCORPIONS, a “Throwdown” pitting the albums VAN HALEN I against Van Halen II, and the guests “Put It On The Table” with some surprising answers. Finally, Eddie regains his dominance in this week’s “Stump The Trunk” after being dealt a few blows last week.
