The Golden Gods Awards, a ceremony devoted solely to hard rock and heavy metal, is returning to TV on Saturday, May 24 via VH1 Classic at 8 p.m. ET/PT, produced by Dick Clark Productions and Revolver magazine. The four-hour live show will tape Wednesday, April 23, at Los Angeles’ Club Nokia, and stream at VH1.com and on VH1′s mobile app, with a black carpet hosted by Dee Snider. The May 24 telecast will be an edited, 90-minute version of the show.
Topping this year’s star-studded talent lineup will be Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose, who will be presented with 2014′s Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award, and Joan Jett, the first-ever female recipient of the Golden God Award, which will be presented by 2011 winner Alice Cooper. Guns N’ Roses and Jett are also among the show’s confirmed performers, alongside Zakk Wylde, who will play during a very special musical tribute to the heavy-metal and hard-rock legends who’ve passed away over the last year. Additional appearances will include Dave Navarro, Alice Cooper, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, Andrew Dice Clay, Joe Manganiello, Tony Hawk, Pauley Perrette, Carmen Electra, A Day To Remember and The Pretty Reckless.
The show will be hosted by metal experts Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine, hosts of VH1 Classic’s own “That Metal Show.”
New dates have been announced! New shows are below, and the full schedule is listed in the “gigs” section. And don’t forget, Hell Bent for Laughter is available now!
“There’s more of a natural ease to this record that only bolsters his comedic style — Jamieson is your best friend, the guy you go out drinking with who loves to tell you about all the sex he’s had and cracks you up with his outlandish jokes. You like Don Jamieson, you could listen to him talk about anything and that’s the mark of a great comic — you care about what they have to say, not how they say them.” PopBreak.com
“raw, uncompromising” AmericasComedy.com
“Jamieson is a well rounded comic who is much more than “that guy from That Metal Show with the sideburns”. If you are a fan of comedy and music you must check out, “Hell Bent For Laughter”, you won’t be disappointed.” PittsburghMusicMagazine.com

Don Jamieson is set to release his second album on March 18th on Metal Blade Records! “Hell Bent for Laughter” was record in December of 2013 at Uncle Vinnie’s Comedy Club in Pleasant Beach, NJ. The BYOB club, one of Jamieson’s favorites on the east coast, turned out to be the perfect venue for Don’s straight-forward, irreverent comedy! Fans can listen to the opening track from the album, including an intro from UFO’s Vinnie Moore and Jim Florentine at metalblade.com/donjamieson. An iTunes version with an exclusive bonus track is also available for pre-order now.
Don Jamieson comments: “I’m really pumped to unleash my second stand-up comedy CD, ‘Hell Bent For Laughter,’on the masses. In this day and age of “fake outrage,” Metal Blade never asked me to tone it down or soften anything up. So I didn’t.”
