William Howell (“DJ WILL”, if you’re a friend or fan) is an encyclopedia of rock and metal, having worked with LA’s KNAC radio, Metal Blade Records and VH-1 Classic’s ‘THAT METAL SHOW’ over the course of several decades. This man forgets no name, band or venue… if you’re a fan of the hard rock/metal scene, you already know that Will’s got stories for days. But few get to hang with him, which is why we’ll be hangin’, chattin’ and heckling.

The iconic Headbanger’s Ball MTV VJ and I shared a rare in-person live appearance on All Access Live from Happy Rock Inn in Portland, Oregon. Riki and Lea Vendetta (world-famous tattoo artist) are riding their motorcycle cross-country to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s Disease (www.rikisride.com). Traveling more than 10,000 miles, their goal is to raise $20,000 through donations on their journey. We’re talked the history of MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball, Riki’s journey through the heyday of the Sunset Strip era, how the industry has changed and how he’s weathered the storm while bringing attention to worthy causes. Happy Rock Inn is THE stop for musicians traveling through Portland, and does a ton of charity work for the community.
