‘That Metal Show‘ will lean a little more on the classic rock side this week as Foreigner‘s Mick Jones and Mountain guitar great Leslie West will join Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine for interviews. Meanwhile, Lita Ford will lay down some blistering licks as the special music guest.
Jones, who has been the main songwriter and is a founding member of Foreigner, will reflect on the band’s career and all of their hard rocking hits they’ve generated over the years. West, meanwhile, becomes the first Woodstock alum to grace the ‘That Metal Show’ stage. The man who gave us ‘Mississippi Queen’ will share some of his stories, and both he and Jones will offer their candid answers to the panel’s “Put It on the Table” questions.
As for Ford, she will take on the instrumental spot often given to some of rock and metal’s finest players, providing the audience with some heaviness leading in and out of commercial breaks. Ford’s history with the show dates back to the beginning as she was the first-ever guest on ‘That Metal Show.’
This week’s ‘That Metal Show’ will also have a check-in with guitarist Marty Friedman as part of the “Metal Modem” segment, and, as usual, the audience attempts to “Stump the Trunk” with a new round of trivia questions.
Be sure to tune in for the next edition of ‘That Metal Show,’ airing this Saturday, March 1 at 11PM ET/PT on VH1 Classic.
