METALLICA's ULRICH, MACHINE HEAD's FLYNN On 'That Metal Show' Season 10 Premiere (Preview)

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 GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash.

Commented "That Metal Show" co-host Eddie Trunk "We did shoot 10 all-new shows. However, VH1 Classic is only showing eight of them for this next run. The episodes with David Draiman [DISTURBED] and ADRENALINE MOB and Bobby Blotzer and L.A. GUNS will air, but they will now be included with Season 11 and should debut sometime this summer. This was a network decision I have no control over. But they will air, just at a slightly later date. Also Jason Newsted [METALLICA, VOIVOD, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM] canceled at the last minute, so he has not yet done a show with us as planned."
