Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian surely has a mass of wisdom to bestow onto us. As a founding member of Anthrax, Ian has been laying down the law in metal for more than 30 years. And with the band's latest album, 'Worship Music,' being universally praised by critics and fans alike, Ian has proven that he has staying power in the metal universe. And his beard is really cool, too!

Already the President of whisky, Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister is yet another President of Heavy Metal contender. His influence on the metal scene is undeniable, and as an elder statesman of metal his experience would certainly work to his advantage. Check out that picture above, he already looks like a world leader! This President thing should be as easy for Lemmy as downing a shot of Jack Daniels!
