Congrats go out to TOMMY MERRY who will be the opening act, with TESTAMENT headlining on Billy Steel's METAL ZONE SIDE-STAGE at BONE BASH III, on Saturday, November 2nd at the Chronicle Pavilion.

OCTOBER 04, 2002

We'd like to thank Billy Steel for all his support and help. He's been a true friend and an asset to the metal scene here in the Bay Area. The Bone Bash III will be an exciting, not to mention historical event, as this is the first time in 2 years that the mighty TESTAMENT will be performing since Chuck was diagnosed with cancer.

Regarding the bands competing for the opening spot:
The frustration over the "online poll" is understandable, but it's NOT Billy's fault. The way the contest is being run is out of his hands. He is quite aware that there may be some 'unethical tactics' going on (remember the past presidential election?!), but he's assured us that the band who wins, will win fairly, by the FANS' VOTES, period.

If you haven't voted yet... there are some soundfiles posted on the poll page on The Bone website to help you make your decision: Billy Steel's Poll Page

Thanks again, Billy :)!
