The 6th annual METAL HALL OF FAME gala is set for January 26, 2023 at The Canyon in Agoura Hills, California (Tickets). The gala is once again hosted by radio veteran Eddie Trunk and co-hosted by musician and TV personality Cathy Rankin.

This year’s event will induct such legends as TWISTED SISTER, RAVEN, IMPELLITTERI, and LOU GRAMM. It will also feature special guest inductors (STEVE VAI & MIKE PORTNOY announced so far), live performances, and the METAL HALL OF FAME’s trademark surprise appearances.

I had the chance to catch up with METAL HALL OF FAME founder & CEO PAT GESUALDO ahead of the event.

Highlights include:

-How the METAL HALL OF FAME began
-The criteria for an induction
-The Hall’s charitable associations
-Discussion of this year’s Gala
-Inducting TWISTED SISTER, RAVEN, IMPELLITTERI, and LOU GRAMM
-Eddie Trunk returning as host
-Steve Vai & Mike Portnoy’s involvement
-Past inductees & surprises
-2023 surprises
-Where & when to stream the event
-Repairing past band rivalries
-Inductions throughout the year, rather than at one event
-Red tape involved with making inductions happen
-METAL HALL OF FAME ALL-STARS CD/DVD Box Set
-Taking the ALL-STARS on the road in the future
-A physical METAL HALL OF FAME in the future
-And much, much more!
