Jon Schaffer definitely fits the bill, but I doubt Tom Morello would be backstage at an Iced Earth concert, though maybe at a festival

I met Tom Morello while working Lolapalooza. Spent 15 minutes talking to him with no clue who he was. Seemed like a nice guy.

I wish the members of Rage Against the Machine would run for office. Somewhere where they could flip a red place blue.

Listen for Tom Morello (and his 98 year old mom) on SiriusXM.  He's pushing his new album a little too hard but usually a good show.  He doesn't do that whole "Playing the music from the 90's that brought rock back!  Here's Dishwalla!" thing.  He digs a bit deeper.

Yep. Vernon Reid, for sure.

I once got into it with my bus driver when I was a high school sophomore. There were like, maybe 10 Black kids in my grade (out of like, 530 students, it was a big suburban district), one of whom lived in my neighborhood. He was a budding guitarist, and would occasionally bring his Jackson (can't remember the model) to school for an independent music study.

One day, the bus driver was feeling his oats, and turned to me and straight up said "don't n-words usually carry turntables?" while laughing. Of course he says this while listening to Living Color's Vivid. I can't remember exactly what I said to him when I got off the bus, but it was something along the lines of 'rethink your taste in music, you racist motherfarker...' he was conspicuously absent from our bus route after that, and turns out he was totes fired.

Heh. Where does this person think Rock & Roll came from?

Also...Hendrix...an incredible artist and human being, lost to us far too early.

I have a rather deep voice and so it seems a lot of people are disappointed that I'm white when we meet.
Then I pull my pants off, alone at home, to get in bed.

I know that Kerry hated Trump from the start, which produced some delicious wailing from the unf*ckables.

Kerry hasn't had long hair since the 80s, either.

Super disappointed when she left Frozen Crown.  The new lead guitarist just doesn't have the same presence.

Weren't a lot of heavy metal bands big enough to play with RATM back in the day.

Kerry King? Dimebag? Jerry Cantrell?

I'd hope it wouldn't be Kirk Hammet, that dude is transforming into Richard Simmons. Get him some short shorts and a tank top.
