Scott Ian - Page 4
Metallica and Anthrax are not only part of 'The Big 4,' but also came up through the metal ranks at the same time. Their shared history dates back to the '80s, and sadly Anthrax were there with Metallica during the most traumatic and tragic event of their early career -- the death of bassist Cliff Burton.
You may have caught Scott Ian's 'Speaking Words' in Europe last summer, and if you're in the U.S., you may be catching the Anthrax guitarist's 2014 North American tour dates. However, if you won't be seeing Ian tell his tale in person, you might be able to grab an official DVD release. For a bit of help to finance a DVD release, Ian has set up a direct-to-fan campaign.
The metal world is abuzz about Anthrax creating their 11th studio album. Never looking to repeat themselves, Anthrax are currently coming together to write something fresh, and with new guitarist Jonathan Donais (Shadows Fall) on board, Scott Ian is pumped for fans to hear what the thrash legends will come up with next.
Another year, another edition of the Grammy Awards. A bunch of great bands were given a Best Metal Performance nomination for the 2014 ceremony. Among the acts nominated are Anthrax, who received the nod for their cover of AC/DC's 'T.N.T.' We caught up with Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian on the phone to get his reaction to the nomination.
Want a double shot of metal hilarity? Check out the first full episode of 'Cooking Hostile,' an online animated clip that takes Pantera / Down legend Phil Anselmo and sticks him into the world of culinary arts. Along with Anthrax's Scott Ian and Suicidal Tendencies' Mike Muir, Phil Anselmo's music is re-invented with hit after hit of food-based parody.
If there was any doubt left that Anthrax amicably parted ways with guitarist Rob Caggiano, this video will likely erase it. Caggiano now mans the guitar for Danish rockers Volbeat, and during the band's Sept. 16 gig in Los Angeles, Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian was invited onstage to perform the Volbeat track 'Pool of Booze, Booze, Booza,' which was preceded by a small piece of Anthrax's 'I Am the Law.'
