VH1 CLASSIC TO AIR THE REVOLVER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS SATURDAY, MAY 22
On stands now, the 2010 REVOLVER MAGAZINE GOLDEN GODS issue is not to be missed. The double-sized issue boasts an all-star cover featuring REVOLVER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS winners, performers and presenters–including OZZY OSBOURNE, LEMMY KILMISTER of Motörhead, SLASH, ROB HALFORD of Judas Priest, DAVE GROHL, ALICE COOPER, CHINO MORENO of Deftones, ROB ZOMBIE, ZAKK WYLDE of Black Label Society, VINNIE PAUL of Hellyeah, JERRY CANTRELL of Alice In Chains, CHRIS JERICHO of WWE and Fozzy, KAT VON D, MARC COLOMBO of the Dallas Cowboys and Free Reign, and many more.
Inside the issue, readers can enjoy exclusive behind-the-scenes coverage of the REVOLVER GOLDEN GODS show. Everything from the soundchecks, cover shoot, star-studded Black Carpet, and pre-show jitters to what went on backstage, the onstage mishaps, late-night after party and the action that was too hot for TV is documented in detail. The issue also includes exclusive interviews with Lifetime Achievement Award winner LEMMY KILMISTER and Golden God Award winner ROB HALFORD, as well as a powerful interview with West Memphis Three member Damien Echols straight from death row, and excerpts from MARILYN MANSON's statement on behalf of the WM3 at the Golden Gods.
From May 24th through June 10th, readers can bid to win two Epiphone guitars signed by the REVOLVER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS winners, performers and presenters including SLASH, JERRY CANTRELL, KERRY KING (of Slayer), ZAKK WYLDE and SCOTT IAN (of Anthrax and Brian Posehn’s band). All proceeds from the auctions will be donated to the West Memphis Three legal defense fund. The auction will last 17 days–one day for each year the West Memphis Three have spent behind bars. June 3rd will mark the 17th anniversary of when Echols, Misskelley and Baldwin were sentenced for a crime they didn’t commit. Information on how to bid can be found inside the issue and online at http://www.skeletonkeyauctions.com/.
In addition to the excitement contained within these pages, readers can get a look at the final interview with PETER STEELE of TYPE O NEGATIVE before his untimely death, a fascinating story about AS I LAY DYING’S frontman TIM LAMBESIS’s adopted son, an in-depth look at DEFTONES’ rise from the tragedy of bassist CHI’s car accident and subsequent coma, and an inspirational profile of a metal band comprised of U.S. soldiers who were injured in the line of duty and bonded through the Walter Reed Army Medical Center rehab program Musicorps. A bonus commemorative poster will also be included in the special issue. The epic poster memorializes the onstage collaboration between hard-rock icons LEMMY KILMISTER and SLASH during the 2010 REVOLVER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS.
Highlights from the REVOLVER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS show will officially air on Saturday, May 22, at 10:00pm ET/PT on VH1 Classic.
