'Metalhead to Head' is a Fascinating Look Into the Creative Process


If you’ve read this blog or listened to any of the podcasts I do, you probably know that I am huge music fan, and in particular, a heavy metal fan. I was a teenager in the late 1980’s, and my love of heavy metal was encompasses everything from glam to thrash.

Recently, Fuse TV started a new webseries that is my favorite thing to come along in music TV since Headbanger’s Ball. It’s called Metalhead to Head, and the premise is simple--each week they bring together two great metal musicians and film them hanging out and talking music. Sometimes they are old friends, and sometimes they barely know one another. But the conversations are fascinating, as they inevitably delve into a discussion of craft, tools and process.



Even if you’re not a big music or metal fan, as a writer I think you’ll appreciate the magic of these conversations. The most recent episode (part one of which you can watch above) features two awesome bass players--Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot, Ozzy, Dio, Whitesnake) and Frank Bello (Anthrax).
