BEHEMOTH, VENOM, ANNIHILATOR, DESTRUCTION Members Cover MOTÃRHEAD On 70000 TONS OF METAL (Video)
Adam "Nergal" Darski of BEHEMOTH joined VENOM frontman Conrad "Cronos" Lant, Jeff Waters of ANNIHILATOR, Mike Sifringer of DESTRUCTION and Florian "Specki T.D." Speckardt of IN EXTREMO on stage to perform a cover version of the MOTÃRHEAD classic "Ace Of Spades" during the infamous all-star jam aboard the 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise, which set sail Thursday, January 22 ofrom Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Ocho Rios, Jamaica and returned to the real world on Monday, January 26.
Said Nergal: "Out of all the bullshit preaching by Christians, one is true: miracles DO happen!
"I remember when I was 8-9 year old kid, I'd be coming back home and instead of reading books, I would crank up [VENOM's] 'Bloodlust' real loud and do air guitar in front of the mirror.
"It took me 30 years to stand next to Cronos on the same stage covering MOTÃRHEAD!
"Yes, I am living my dreamâ¦ And these words sooo defining my whole life: 'if you like to gamble, I'm your man, you win some, you lose some, it's all the same to meâ¦"
More Details On EDDIE VAN HALEN's Smithsonian Speech
Legendary guitarist Eddie Van Halen will speak at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History and ZÃ³calo Public Square in Washington D.C. on February 12. The event will be broadcast online, so fans will be able to watch video of Eddie's speech the very next day.
The Dutch immigrant and naturalized U.S. citizen will discuss his American journey, his role in creating one of the biggest American rock bands of all time, how he has reinvented the way the guitar is played and designed, and he will answer the question, "Is rock 'n' roll about reinvention?" Entertainment journalist Denise Quan will moderate the sold-out event.
Best known as the lead guitarist and co-founder of VAN HALEN, Eddie Van Halen is recognized for his innovative performance and recording styles, two-hand tapping, scorching solos and energetic concerts. Van Halen has invented guitar technology, technique and instruments that have redefined how the guitar is played and heard.
For the event, Van Halen and Fender will donate a master-built replica of Van Halen's infamous white-with-black-stripe Stratocaster. This is the guitar that changed the guitar world in 1978 when Van Halen cross-pollinated Gibson electronics with Fender body and neck designs. To represent the path of progressions in his instrument designs, a Stealth finished EVH Brand Wolfgang will also be included to represent his modern-day workhorse.
In addition to the guitars, Van Halen and Fender Musical Instruments Corp. will donate an EVH Brand 5150-III amplifier and speaker cabinet to embody the journey and progression of his amplifier designs from the early '70s through the modern day.
The February 12 event is sold out, and no public tickets are available.
