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.

Everything Louder Than Everything Else!

Motörhead rocked my ass off. As they’ve done for the last 34 years, Motörhead hit the road with one thing in mind: Everything Louder Than Everything Else. Well done, boys.

Motörhead headlined Club Nokia at LA Live last Friday night in front of a packed house. Nashville Pussy and the Reverend Horton Heat opened the show and started to build the energy in the room, but when Motörhead took the stage the crowd exploded.

LA MetBlogs gave away tickets to the show, and invited the ticket winners to write about their experiences. Their accounts and more photos after the break.
