It’s time for The Old Metal Bar-Steward, Episode 6. That’s right, you filthy animals, it’s been roughly a week since my dulcet tones brought you tales of my sordid past as well as 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?
This week I start with a look at how Lemmy truly was The Last Outlaw and why Motorhead is the greatest band in the world. Then it’s on to the news. I’m full of praise for rock stars that have come out in support of getting the COVID vaccine, and this time out it’s Sebastian Bach. What I’m not happy about, however, is Ted Nugent, and I take the madman to task for accusing doctors and nurses of making up the numbers and have to explain to him that there really wasn’t a COVID 1 to 18, which he genuinely believes. I look at why people are getting bunged up that Phil Anselmo is playing Pantera songs with his new band before I hate on Papa Roach just for existing. Dee Snyder doing a duet with the singer of Cannibal Corpse gets my ‘What The Hell?’ moment of the week award, while Korn’s Brian Welch gets my sympathy for being hated on by metalheads and Christians alike. Then it’s a look at Nita Strauss performing at NXT TakeOver; Stand And Deliver, before I sign off with the brilliant news that Soulfly are working on their 12th album.
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 20 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.
