Guitarist Nuno Bettencourt and singer Gary Cherone of reunited Boston hard rockers EXTREME were interviewed on the latest episode of VH1 Classic's hit weekly series "That Metal Show". Watch a clip of their apearance on the program below.
"That Metal Show" premiered last season to rave reviews and featured special guests RUSH, AC/DC, TWISTED SISTER, Lita Ford, Ace Frehley of KISS and a very special appearance by former baseball star Mike Piazza. This season the gang is back as hosts Eddie Trunk, Jim Florentine ("Crank Yankers", "Inside the NFL", "Meet The Creeps"), and Don Jamieson ("Inside The NFL", "Dice Undisputed", "Meet The Creeps") lead this loud, proud, and headbanger approved talkfest.
VH1 Classic has mixed the best of "The View" with "Headbangers Ball" to create "That Metal Show". This season metal heads will join Eddie, Don, and Jim as they welcome former GUNS N' ROSES bassist and VELVET REVOLVER member Duff McKagan, Frank Bello from ANTHRAX, PANTERA founder Vinnie Paul and HEAVEN AND HELL, to name just a few.
Each week the hosts discuss the latest rock news, share stories, take to the streets for man on the street pranks, and argue about their favorite bands. Whether they're arguing over the best Canadian metal band of all time in "The Throwdown" or tracking down one of your favorite metal artists who disappeared in a "Whatever Happened To" segment or Jim Florentine and Don Jamieson hitting the streets to connect and hang out with the fans for some "Man-On-The Street" pranks, everything is covered and no metal band or metal moment is left behind.
But "That Metal Show" isn't just a roundtable discussion; it's about comedy too. The comedy continues in-studio, as host Eddie Trunk takes on the metal maniacs in the studio audience in the "Stump the Trunk" metal trivia contest. If the audience can stump Eddie, they win a metal-worthy prize.
"That Metal Show" is a hilarious 30 minutes of mayhem that all fans of hard rock and heavy metal are bound to love! It is the perfect combination of music and comedy in one show. Tune in to VH1 Classic on March 7 at 11:00 p.m to join the debate and rock on!
Fans can also catch all of season one and season two online at VH1Classic.com. New episodes will launch online every Monday morning following the show's on-air premiere.
