‘Metal Masters 5′ Show To Be Streamed Live
If you're not able to make it to Anaheim, Calif., for next week's star-studded 'Metal Masters 5' show, you can log in and watch a live stream of the concert via Gear Gods. The live stream from the House of Blues begins Wednesday, Jan. 22, at 11PM ET / 8PM PT.
Members of Pantera, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth are heavily represented at this year's clinic. Pantera members Philip H. Anselmo and Rex Brown will be there along with Slayer guitarists Kerry King and Gary Holt. Anthrax’s Charlie Benante, Scott Ian and Frank Bello return for another round of ‘Metal Masters,’ as do Megadeth’s David Ellefson and Chris Broderick.
Bello, Ellefson and A Perfect Circle drummer Jeff Friedl recently released an EP as Altitudes & Attitude, and will be making their stage debut at 'Metal Masters 5.' Rounding out the lineup are drummer Mike Portnoy and his Winery Dogs bandmate Billy Sheehan and Testament frontman Chuck Billy.
Anthrax's Scott Ian talked to Loudwire about his experience at last year's event and what he's looking forward to this year. "I had a lot of fun in my “clinic” section of it," Ian says. "I basically brought people up from the audience to jam and play stuff. It just worked really well and the audience seemed to dig that. There were some really good players who came up, that was fun. I’m not sure I’m going to do that again this time, I don’t know what I’m going to do with my 20-25 minutes."
Ian adds: "As far as what I’m looking forward to? Any time I get to jam with all these dudes, it’s always a lot of fun. We’re all friends, so the fact that we all get to hang out for a couple of days through rehearsal and the actual show, it’s a lot of fun to get to hang out with that crew. It’s pretty much a laugh fest from beginning to end. Just getting to hang out with all the guys is definitely what I look forward to doing the most."
