That Metal Show: Season 6 information revealed

According to Blabbermouth, That Metal Show will start filming for its sixth season. Like the previous season, the show will be filmed in Los Angeles. That Metal Show is a talk-show on VH1 Classic that is hosted by Eddie Trunk, Jim Florentine, and Don Jamieson. This is no ordinary talk-show: the hosts, along with the week's special guest, will talked about nothing but hard rock and heavy metal. The show started in 2008 and has featured some of the biggest names in metal. The only change in the show known so far is the length, which has been expanded to an hour instead of 30 minutes. The first episode of this season will be a special tribute to Ronnie James Dio, who passed on May 16 from stomach cancer. According to Blabbermouth, the guests for this episode will include:

Vinny Appice (drummer of Black Sabbath, Dio, and Heaven & Hell)
Geezer Butler (bassist of Black Sabbath and Heaven & Hell)
Simon Wright (drummer of AC/DC and Dio)
Craig Goldy (guitarist of Dio)
Wendy Dio (wife/widow and manager of Ronnie)
Rob Halford (singer of Judas Priest)
Tom Morello (guitarist of Rage Against the Machine)

The article has also confirmed that the guests for this season will include (unknown if this is in order by episode or not):

Jason Bonham (son of Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, also drummer for Bonham, Foreigner, and UFO. Also fills in as drummer for Zeppelin reunions, last time in 2007)

Bill Ward (drummer of Black Sabbath)
Richie Kotzen (guitarist of Poison and Mr. Big)
Phil Collen (guitarist of Def Leppard)
Frankie Banali (drummer of Quiet Riot and W.A.S.P.)
Chuck Billy (singer of Testament)
Tracii Guns (guitarist of L.A. Guns)
Michael Anthony (bassist of Van Halen and Chickenfoot)
Slash (guitarist of Guns N Roses and Velvet Revolver)
George Lynch (guitarist of Dokken and Lynch Mob)
Philip Anselmo (singer of Pantera and Down)

I'm a fan of That Metal Show. I particularly like the segment Stump the Trunk, where the audience asks Eddie Trunk questions about hard rock and heavy metal. Most of the time, I get them right and love how it tests my knowledge in the genres. The guest line up looks great. I'm looking most forward to Frankie Banali.
