I love THAT METAL SHOW and would be lying if I didn’t admit that it’s been a major inspiration for me in creating HEAVY METAL MESSENGER.

Anyone who’s been following HEAVY METAL MESSENGER already knows I’ve been a longtime fan of the music genres of hard rock and heavy metal. Seeing the passion and dedication of Eddie Trunk, Jim Florentine, and Don Jamieson  pushed me over the edge to having the balls to share my passion with the entire world, well for now just the couple hundred folks a day who visit my site.

Thanks guys!  Your show is great fun and I look forward to watching and listening each and every week. Season Ten has me as excited as ever! Insert joke here.

Season ten of VH1 Classic‘s “That Metal Show” kicks off on Saturday, March 31 and featured guests include IRON MAIDEN‘s Adrian Smith (making his first appearance on the program), METALLICA‘s Lars Ulrich, MOTÖRHEAD‘s Lemmy Kilmister, Alice Cooper and former METALLICA bassist Jason Newsted.

“I’ve known the MAIDEN guys for a long time and been a fan since day one,” “That Metal Show” co-host Eddie Trunk told VH1.com‘s Tuner. “They are easily one of the most requested bands to have a member of on ‘That Metal Show’. Because they are such a global band, it’s been hard to track them down, but thrilled we were able to catch up with Adrian. It will be cool because we don’t hear from him often, he’s a great guy, has a huge history with the band, and has a new side project to discuss.”

He added, “I’m so excited about the evolution of the show, having rock and metal artists, and first time and returning guests. I love all the variety and am thrilled for a huge 2012!”
