Don’s picks of the week from That Metal Show season 14!


April 1st at B.B. King’s Blues Club & Grill!

That Metal Show season 14 begins February 21st!

The first guests of That Metal Show‘s 14th season have just been announced and this might just be the best season yet. Joining Eddie, Jim and Don on SaturdayFebruary 21st will be none other than Rush singer and bassist Geddy Lee. And if that isn’t enough to send fans of classic rock and progressive metal into a tizzy, mounting the TMS riser as season 14′s first musical guest is Dream Theater‘s very own wizard of the six-strings, John Petrucci.

That Metal Show host Eddie Trunk was beyond excited to make the announcement, saying “Back when TMS was first born, Geddy & Alex were nice enough to fly to New York and be a guest in our very first season. I’ve always had a great relationship with the Rush guys and it meant so much to me they were willing to support something I was doing that at that point hardly anyone had seen or heard of.” He added, “Amazingly almost seven years have passed and we’re now about to debut our 14th season of That Metal Show and I couldn’t be more honored to welcome back Geddy to the set to celebrate 40 plus years of Rush and the return of TMS!”

Tune into VH1 Classic SaturdayFebruary 21st at a brand new premiere time of 9/8C to see the season 14 premiere of the only show on television about all things hard rock and heavy metal.
