It’s time for The Old Metal Bar-Steward, Episode 11. That’s right, you filthy animals, it’s been roughly a week since my dulcet tones brought you all the news, views, and opinions that are fit to rant about, and now it’s time for another dose of your weekly metal injection. But what does your Old Metal Bar-Steward have lined up for you this time out, courtesy of 25YL Media and The Ruminations Radio Network?
I start out with some Randy Rhodes news, as his friend Ozzy Osbourne has been speaking about his induction into The Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame, before more Rhodes news as some items of his that were stolen have, finally, been returned to his family. Next, it’s time for Nutty Nugent Watch, and Old Ted has been praising FOX TV racist, Tucker Carlson, before dropping his own homophobia on the fact that transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard is being allowed to compete in the Olympics. On the plus side, the right-wing poster boy has confirmed he won’t be bringing his brand of hatred to a concert hall near you any time soon. Max Cavalera has been explaining how dinner at The Osbourne’s stopped him from quitting music, while Anthrax drummer, Charlie Benante, has been explaining to Dane Campbell on his excellent ‘Drum For The Song’ podcast how he’s recovered from carpal tunnel syndrome. Courtney Love has been speaking out against the hatchet job of a TV show that will be looking at Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s relationship, and Dave Grohl has been discussing getting stoned out of his mind with the legend that is Joan Jett. Live shows are returning and I’m casting my eye over Alice Cooper and Ace Frehley hitting the road together, as well as The Black Crowes, Guns N Roses, Foo Fighters, The Misfits, and Aerosmith all hitting the stage once again. Then there’s the news that Alice Cooper is selling off his Andy Warhol, which he didn’t even know he had in the first place before I call out Staind singer…singer? If you say so…Aaron Lewis for being mini Ted Nugent. Black Label Society is close to finishing their new album, Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame CEO, Greg Lewis, has been talking bollocks about Metal, and six strands of Kurt Cobain’s hair sold for far more than any strands of hair ever sodding should.
As always, if you’re easily offended then The Old Metal Bar-Steward is probably not for you, and you should know that the opinions expressed here are mine and mine alone, and in no way reflect the opinions or thoughts of 25YL Media or The Ruminations Radio Network. But if you have a sense of humor, then the next 34 minutes should brighten up your day. I’ll be back in a week’s time with more of my musings. Until then, stay safe and stay metal, you filthy animals.
