The ninth season of VH1 Classic’s ‘That Metal Show’ will launch on National Metal Day (11-11-11) and it kicks off with the biggest of all “gets” in terms of interviews, as Guns N’ Roses singer W. Axl Rose sat down with the hosts for an early morning chat a few weeks back.

It’ll be Axl’s first television interview in over a decade, so to call this “exclusive” and “anticipated” would be an understatement of the highest order! The Rose episode of ‘That Metal Show’ airs outside of the normal Saturday night time slot. It will air on Friday, Nov. 11, at 11 PM ET/PT on VH1 Classic. Tune in.

With the Axl Rose interview out of the way on the first ep, the rest of the season has a lot to live up to. And guess what? It’s A-list and high quality! It does not go downhill after the first episode.

Axl’s former axe-man Slash also appears the very next week!  AC/DC singer Brian Johnson, Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine, spooky rocker Marilyn Manson and Godsmack vocalist Sully Erna also show up for chats, as does — get this — Andrew Dice Clay! If you miss it, you’re silly!

There are plenty of other guests that are worth your time. The full line up is below. Horns up!
