VH1 Classic's That Metal Show to Celebrate 100th Show During Twelfth Season

VH1 Classic's That Metal Show hits a milestone on June 15 when it presents its 100th show.

The metal-themed talk show, hosted by Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson, and Jim Florentine, debuted in November 2008 and has become a major venue for artists promoting their latest rock and metal releases.

Show number 100 will feature the bassist for Pantera, Rex Brown, and his long time friend in the industry, Sebastian Bach, formerly of Skid Row. The two of them became friends on the road when Pantera and Skid Row toured together, and they retell some of their greatest stories from those days.

Season 12 includes fan-favorite segments like "Stump The Trunk" and "The Vault", but will also feature some new additions including "Metal Modem" features an online video chat with the biggest names in metal and hard rock from the far reaches of the globe, "Take It Or Leave It" where the hosts discuss an array of current topics and share their overly biased opinions, and many other surprise segments. Also returning this year is the "Guest Musician" where a legendary guitarist or drummer performs as a one-man house band throughout the show. This season's guest musicians feature Ex-Ozzy Osbourne guitarist, Jake E. Lee, return guitarist Richie Kotzen, and on drums, the brothers Carmine and Vinny Appice.

I am so sick of that damned show. It seems like that is all that is on whenever I tune in to VH-1 Classic. For that matter, there is WAY too much focus on metal on that channel.

Well asshole, they should change the FUCKING CHANNEL'S name to VH-1 Metal. It is so typical of those chowder heads over at MTV Networks to over saturate programming. They ruined MTV, then MTV 2 & VH-1 now they've fucked up VH-1 Classic.
