Over the past year, I’ve been travelling to meet with some of the biggest names in rock and metal music. Some of them will be very familiar to you, like the metal heroes I’ve had the privilege to interview before, people like Rob Halford of Judas Priest, Joe Elliott of Def Leppard, Geddy Lee of Rush and Slash. I’ve also had the chance to sit down for the first time with such iconic artists as Ann Wilson of Heart and Daryl Hall. I traveled to Dave Mustaine’s winery, Nikki Sixx’s radio studio, Billy Corgan’s home and even got invited back to the Texas sanctum of Ted Nugent. It’s been a blast really getting to know each of these musicians and I can’t wait to share their stories with you.
With Rock Icons, we feel strongly that what we’ve made is a different kind of music biography show. One that’s actually about the music and what drives these artists to create the way they do. Truly, what makes them an icon.
Mark your calendars and tune in each Saturday night! (If you are outside of America, sit tight for further announcements about Rock Icons coming to your country.)
Rock Icons premieres Saturday, February 21 at 10pm EST on Vh1 Classic. And the first episode features one of our fave artists of all-time, the remarkable Geddy Lee.
