Anthrax’s Scott Ian Reflects on Romances, ’90s Split With Joey Belladonna + Destructive Behavior
Guitarist Scott Ian is busy working on a new Anthrax album following the release of his stellar autobiography, 'I'm the Man,' last fall. We had a chance to speak with Ian about the book, and he discussed a few of its many highlights with us.
In the video above, we asked Ian why he didn't go into too much sexual detail in the book when describing his relationship with the women in his life. "Who the f--- wants to read about me having sex," Ian told us. "My attitude is: Unless you can top [Motley Crue's 'The Dirt], why even bother."
We also asked him about the band parting ways with singer Joey Belladonna in the early '90s, and Ian went into detail about the darkness in his own life that partially led to the split. Belladonna has since rejoined the band as their lead singer.
Finally, we touched on some of the destructive behavior that Ian describes in the book, including some insane antics while Anthrax were on tour with Ozzy Osbourne.
Check out Scott Ian discussing all the aforementioned topics in the video above, and take a look at some earlier exclusive videos featuring the Anthrax guitarist below. Also, be sure to pick up Scott Ian's autobiography 'I'm the Man: The Story of That Guy From Anthrax' at Amazon.
