Scratch that new Les Paul off your Christmas wish list and add this: Testament's Alex Skolnick and Megadeth's Chris Broderick have just announced the first annual Skolnick & Broderick’s Winter Guitar Retreat, which is set to take place at Full Moon Resort in New York’s Catskill Mountains from December 26-30.
This past Wednesday, September 14 was a historic night for heavy metal. The Big Four of thrash -- Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth -- took the stage at Yankee Stadium for arguably the biggest, most-anticipated metal show the East Coast of the United States has ever seen.
As is now customary, last night's Big Four show at Yankee Stadium featured a "jam" with members of all four bands -- Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax -- taking the stage to perform a classic song. Usually, the track has been Diamond Head's "Am I Evil?," but last night, the bands played a song they had never before played together: Motorhead's "Overkill."
