Win Tix: Slash, Rob Zombie, Lemmy, Grohl & More at Revolver Golden Gods Awards

I’m not even into metal and this looks awesome.

I always thought Slash was some iconic silent untouchable rock god, like in the song “Slash From Guns & Roses” by I See Hawks In LA. Never did I expect that when I actually met him he’d be approachable, down to earth, humble and not only articulate, but chatty and outgoing. So I’m doubly stoked to have a chance to give these tickets away. Here’s the deets (link for tix &  more info):

  • It’s at Club Nokia on Thursday, April 8 and will air on VH1 Classic on May 22
  • Slash will open the show with several numbers from his upcoming debut solo album, Slash. Natch.
  • Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead, Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother and Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge, who appear on his album, will be his special guests.
  • Lemmy will team up with Slash and Dave Grohl to perform the Motörhead classic “Ace of Spades.”
  • Ozzy Osbourne will present the Metal Blade Golden God Award to Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford.
  • Later in the evening, Grohl will be on hand to present Lemmy with the Revolver Golden Gods Lifetime Achievement Award.
  • Rob Zombie will be joined for the first time by new touring drummer Slipknot’s Joey Jordison. Two songs from the group’s live set will air on ABC-TV’s Jimmy Kimmel Live Friday, April 23.
  • Black Label Society leader Zakk Wylde will be on hand to perform a very special metal version of the national anthem.
  • The show is hosted by Andrew W.K. and Chris Jericho
  • See performances by Fear Factory (their first LA appearance ever with their new line-up), As I Lay Dying, The Devil Wears Prada and last year’s host, Brian Posehn, with an all-star band featuring Scott Ian, Brendon Small, John Tempesta, Brett Anderson and Joey Vera.

To win a pair of tickets to what’s sure to be an epic show, tell me in the comments–what’s the most METAL thing you’ve ever done! I can’t wait to hear your stories. Whether you make ’em up or they really happened, bonus points for evidence.

  1. On July 18, 2008, I went treasure hunting for nine inch nails tickets.
    I called up a friend and he navigated me through Los Angeles. He directed me to a park in Beverly Hills and I found a stash with tickets.

    He asked me to get him some tickets, so I drove to the middle of Hollywood. I ended up at a strip club. It was the middle of the day, so the place was closed. I drove down to east Hollywood, but the place was emptied.

    I went back to the strip club and waited. A scary buff redneck pulled up in a truck and asked why I was hanging around. I told him I was waiting for the place to open up so I could get concert tickets inside. He told me he was friends with the owner and he’d be stopping by soon.

    About an hour later, the owner showed up. He couldn’t be more stereotypical. Persian, gold jewelry, shiny purple track suit. Super sleazy. I explained the situation and he let me in to retrieve the tickets.

  2. Yea. I used to be in a metal band. We called ourselves The Claw Shreds. There were 4 of us: Gruel, Rapture, and Black Hole. Together, we stopped time and spread a thick layer of heavy metal across the universe. Back in the 80s, we toured such hot spots as Detroit’s 8 Mile Cemetary for a special noon performance of our hit “I’ll Take You To the Core of the Earth and Pour Lava On Your Face.”

  3. We once traveled to another city to see a Slayer concert and just decided on the spur of the moment to go to their next 2 shows in 2 other cities also. At the end of the first show we stood outside in freezing cold weather to meet the band. Tom Arraya wrote SLAYER on my arm. I spent the next 2 days taking a shower in hotels with my arm sticking out so I wouldn’t lose it. Front row all three cities baby! SLAYERRRRR!

  4. I bought Lemmy of Motorhead a Jack & Coke @ the Rainbow after the Cathouse 20th Anniversary show.
