I live for music as long as its hard fast an means summit!

Been into Metal / Rock since Motorheads Iron Fist, Maidens Run to the hills was in the charts and Bruce fog horn Dickinson was in his spandex and Madonna was still a virgin !! lol. 

Based in England and having the gift of the gab and natural flair for writing as well as saying what I think.   

I have managed to get through life's struggles and firmly believe that Metal and Rock music as well as my amazing wife of 25 years whom I lost to Cancer in 2017 helped me through to where I am today.

I continue to fight PTSD daily and somehow still keep on going!. Music is my "Lifeblood"  Heavy Metal/ Rock it's my passion and I continue in honor of my best friend, lover, and wife Alison "Bear" Caswell. R.I.P      FUCK CANCER

This site started off from humble beginnings to what it is today and continues to grow...

Our colorful and Basic Website continues to be read, shared, and viewed from every corner of the earth.

With regular features on Blabbermouth, Metal Hammer, to name but a few.

 We Have been lucky enough to cover Festivals in Belgium, Holland, Malta, Spain as well as the UK.

The Metal Gods Rock Show was born/created in the summer of 2007 through my love of Rock & Metal and my desire to "put" something back into a genre of music that had been a massive part of my life for nearly 30 years ...
The show started off on Bishop FM and moved to its present home Radio Teesdale the following year where it has grown and prospered going from strength to strength ...
We've had the absolute pleasure of interviewing some of the genre's biggest names .. Phil Collen .. Biff Byford .. Michael Schenker .. Paul Di Anno .. Doro Pesch .. Danny Bowes and 100's more ...
The support for  The Metal Gods Rock Show made it one of the most listened to of all online and FM Rock shows.l ..    

                               Chippy \m/

We don't do  News, Tour updates, Best of The Year, So many sites do that and our advice is to always follow Ents and the big Metal Websites, etc for this News..

We are a totally non-pretentious Site.. it's all about the Music! 

                     "We Are What We Are"

                

                    PROUD TO BE INDEPENDENT! 

Heavy Metal / Rock is a passion and it's all that matters.Its about the METAL 24/7 \m/ \m/
