DISTURBED frontman David Draiman and AVENGED SEVENFOLD singer M. Shadows were among the guest musicians who performed with the the '80s metal/hard rock tribute band METAL SKOOL last night (Wednesday, August 30) at Oakley's Pre-MTV Video Music Awards Bash at Snitch in New York City. The following first-hand eyewitness report was submitted by a BLABBERMOUTH.NET visitor:

"Just got home from Snitch in NYC. Tomorrow is the MTV VMAs. Well, METAL SKOOL played and Davey [Havok] from AFI sang MÖTLEY CRÜE's 'Live Wire' with them and was also singing along to 'Livin' on a Prayer'! David Drainman sang [LED ZEPPELIN's] 'Rock 'n' Roll' and [DEF LEPPARD's] 'Pour Some Sugar on Me'!! M. Shadows got up and sang the end of [GUNS N' ROSES'] 'Paradise City' too!! LIL JON, the rap guy, tried to rap freestyle behind [AEROSMITH's] 'Walk This Way' and tried to sing 'Jump', but didn't know the words.... All the guys from AVENGED and AFI were there as well as two-thirds of DISTURBED. David and Munky from KORN were also there! By the way... Davey sang 'Live Wire' better than Vince [Neil] EVER did!!!!"
