Rush producer Terry Brown and his brother Phill, who has worked with Led Zeppelin, Talk Talk and Jimi Hendrix, are to be the subject of two intimate q&a sessions at Metropolis Studios in London, from 2pm on October 8 and 9.

Hosted by prog and Classic Rock magazine’s Jerry Ewing and Malcolm Dome, these will see the Brown brothers talking about their 50 year careers in studios, during which they have both recorded some of the most iconic artists of the period.

Fully catered, these Q+A events will be followed by an exclusive performance from acclaimed young band Blurred Vision. Their second album, the follow-up to last year’s Organized Insanity, will be produced by both Terry and Phill Brown – marking the first time the pair have ever collaborated on any project.

Blurred Vision’s set on these nights will be recorded, and all ticket holders will be given a copy of this very limited edition souvenir as they leave. The weekend also marks the anniversary of John Lennon’s birthday, and to commemorate the occasion, Blurred Vision will be playing Dear John during their short set, with everyone present acting as a backing choir during the chorus. The band released their version of the Lennon classic last October.

In addition, ticket holders will get free access to the band’s soundtrack album launch party on September 30, at the Camden Assembly. The trio’s music is featured in new movie Manhattan.

Tickets for Metropolis are limited to just 50 per night, and cost £149. You can only buy them through the official Blurred Vision Pledge store.

Malcolm Dome had an illustrious and celebrated career which stretched back to working for Record Mirror magazine in the late 70s and Metal Fury in the early 80s before joining Kerrang! at its launch in 1981. His first book, Encyclopedia Metallica (opens in new tab), published in 1981, may have been the inspiration for the name of a certain band formed that same year. Dome is also credited with inventing the term "thrash metal" while writing about the Anthrax song Metal Thrashing Mad in 1984. He would later become a founding member of RAW rock magazine in 1988.

In the early 90s, Malcolm Dome was the Editor of Metal Forces magazine, and also involved in the horror film magazine Terror, before returning to Kerrang! for a spell. With the launch of Classic Rock magazine in 1998 he became involved with that title, sister magazine Metal Hammer, and was a contributor to Prog magazine since its inception in 2009. He was actively involved in Total Rock Radio (opens in new tab), which launched as Rock Radio Network in 1997, changing its name to Total Rock in 2000. In 2014 he joined the TeamRock online team as Archive Editor, uploading stories from all of our print titles and helping lay the foundation for what became Louder.

Dome was the author of many books on a host of bands from AC/DC to Led Zeppelin and Metallica, some of which he co-wrote with Prog Editor Jerry Ewing.
