Scott Ian of Anthrax: 34 Years of Thrash

Posted on .

The founding Anthrax axman and avatar of thrash metal looks back on a career of plaster-shattering landmarks

In the world of thrash metal, Scott Ian is a living testament to longevity and tenacity. In our exclusive video, he talks about begging his parents to trade out his nylon-string acoustic for an electric axe. It was Pete Townshend and especially “Pinball Wizard” that grabbed his ear and wouldn’t let. go.

 

Scott goes on to talk about his musical evolution informed by Kiss and Van Halen and the earliest days of Anthrax when he and his cohorts raised the bar, crashing through sonic barriers to produce some of the hardest rock sounds of the ‘80s and ‘90s.

Ian also reveals the origins of his book, I’m the Man: The Story of That Guy from Anthrax—a candid memoir of record label hassles, head-banging and accomplishment laced with a healthy dollop of humor.
