Anthrax's Scott Ian on Mayhem Fest + Next Album
Scott Ian has opened his vaults and the Anthrax archive. The guitarist is auctioning off a multitude of items from over 30 years of his headbanging history. Everything from those famous yellow shorts imprinted with the "Not" saying all over them to a beat up pair of Adidas high tops (size 8, Patrick Ewing style) to vintage passes and tour itineraries are going on the block. If you are a diehard 'Thrax worshipper or tried and true metal fan, there are plenty of items worth owning here. Some of the offerings are priceless.
Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian, an avid fan of AMC’s smash hit ‘The Walking Dead,’ will be sitting in on the cast of the ‘Talking Dead’ after show tonight (March 4).

'The Walking Dead' is based on the comic book series by Robert Kirkman and follows the lives of a group of survivors after a zombie apocalypse.
It's been a rough couple of days for Anthrax, as the rhythm section has had to leave their current tour temporarily. Drummer Charlie Benante's mother is terminally ill, and she just so happens to be bassist Frank Bello's grandmother, so her son and grandson have put business on the backburner to be by her side, rightfully so. But it was also a rough couple of years for the band before popular vocalist Joey Belladonna returned to the fold, with new album 'Worship Music' sitting on the shelf after initially being recorded with singer Dan Nelson. Despite all the things that have happened with the album, guitarist Scott Ian is very happy with the end result.
Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian was forced to sit out of last night's (Jan. 26) show in Kansas City, Mo., after taking ill. Filling in for Ian at the show were the two guitarists Alex Skolnick and Eric Peterson from co-headliners Testament, as well as musicians from Death Angel who all switched off during different songs throughout Anthrax's set.
Zakk Wylde is a guitar deity. He's also a good sport, as he has agreed to be the roastee for Guitar World's first-ever Rock 'n' Roll Roast. Wylde will sit in the hot seat and be subjected to good-natured barbs from fellow rockers, like his former boss Ozzy Osbourne, as well as Anthrax's Scott Ian and Slipknot / Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor.
