That Metal Show on VH1 Classic

Any fans or loyal viewers and do you respect their knowledge of Metal?

I watched occasionally if they had one of my favorite bands or artists but this show has grown on me and now I even watch if Def Leppard is on.


Eddie Trunk's knowledge on metal is amazing and stump the trunk is one of the best segments on TV & Jim Florentine and Don Jamieson are pretty funny.

Miss box of Junk is not bad either

It's a mildly entertaining show. Not exactly the most intriguing interviews I've ever heard. Some of the audience members scare me.

I enjoy the show. It is a good, halfway entertaining time killer.

What's really annoying is that I think the interviews are actually better than what they put in the final show. There are bits they put in the "scrap metal" season finales that are kind of awesome, but the interviews on the episodes seldom go beyond How are you? What have you been doing? Touring?

The original Miss Box of junk, Kerri Lee, died a couple of years ago, not Jennifer, the woman pictured above.

I really wish they could any of the members of Motley Crue to appear on the show. Or even for a joke Steel Panther.

I love That Metal Show. I'm looking forward to reading Eddie's book too.

I like Trunk and respect his knowledge. I like Florentine as a comedian, but as a metal show host he's terrible. Jamieson's at least a bit more knowledgeable.

It's a clunky show but I enjoy it

I like Trunk's radio shows as well. He's had some pretty great interviews on both the Q104 and Boneyard channels.

Same for me. If I happen to stumble upon it, I tend to watch.

I enjoy it. I like it more, now that it's an hour long. I have my DVR set to record the series, and didn't know the new season had started, until I noticed that it had been recorded. Pretty decent episode this week.

Kirk Hammett was this weeks guest.

They should add a live performance segment where one of their guests performs live or other bands could perform if they want to promote their new albums.

The guest guitarist does not count.

What did she die from? I thought maybe she moved on to another project.

I believe it was a drug overdose... Not 100% on that though.

Re: That Metal Show on VH1 Classic

The DJ from my local station, Johnny Dare, is friends with Jim Florentine and Don Jameson. They're supposed to bring the show to Kansas City to film at Rockfest, which is the biggest one day festival in america. I think there were over 55,000 people who went last year. I've never heard of most of the bands that play Rockfest, but I like the idea of it. Unfortunately, I don't have any way of getting to the show even if I could afford the 35 dollar ticket. No one else in my family likes metal, so I'd have to go by myself. I could ask a friend to take me, but I don't have any.

Love the show, but it's not long enough. 30min (20 after commercials) is not long enough to do indepth interviews with bands.

What do they do with the extra time? Hopefully longer interviews...

That was so cool what Kirk did with hiring that artist to make lifelike wax figures of Boris Karloff & Bela Lugosi. I wish i knew the name of the artist to see more of his work.

Re: That Metal Show on VH1 Classic

I DVR the show because I'm a metalhead, but I think it could use some work. They made some changes recently that improved things, but I don't know if adding an extra 30 min. was a good thing. Trunk is good although, to quote someone whose name escapes me, he treats bands like sports teams; he seems less passionate about metal, more like soneone who just collects facts in his head.

Jamieson is a fucking knob. He talks out of his ass a lot, even more when he obviously has no clue what he's talking about.

Florentine is decent - he's got the best jokes of the three. But none of these guys is a great interviewer.

Re: That Metal Show on VH1 Classic

Because of my love for music/metal, this show is must-see TV. Some episodes are much better than others. I like the idea of an hour, but definitely hope it plays out differently in the future.

Since they have a guest guitarist there anyway, I wouldn't mind seeing music incorporated into the show somehow. Whether it's the guitar guy and the guest(s) jamming on a song or having a "house band" of some of the more unknown acts that they feel deserve some exposure or anything like that.

I'll never not watch though. It's too much of a heater right down the middle of the plate for me to pass up.

I go to probably 30-50 concerts a year by myself, so you should try it. I go to like 10-20 with friends but, if I want to see a band I'm going to see them.
