The Details: Scott Ian is the man behind the rhythm guitar of the great and legendary Thrash Metal band Anthrax, a band that has been around the world numerous times and he is currently on a “Spoken Words Tour” that finds him discussing his life at large for his ardent fans. Scott says “”It’s an evening of ridiculous truth. It’s me talking (swearing) about this insane life I’ve led over the last 31 years, the people I’ve met and the shit that’s happened. And when I’m done swearing, you can ask me anything you want, the floor is yours.” – That sure sounds like an interesting time and thanks to the folks at B.B.

  1. 1) I always love hearing stories about our fallen bretheren Cliff and Dime.
    2) I am just too young to have experienced Metal’s heydey in NYC, and so I love hearing those stories as well.
    3) Scott and Anthrax are still very relevent in today’s metal scene, and I want to hear about where the band is going.

    1. Congratulations Brad you have won a ticket to see Scott Ian at B.B. King Blues Club on 3/5. Please stay tuned to the comments and watch for one from me that closes the contest and lines out the winner details.

  2. 1. Anthrax is one of my favorite bands of all time. I know that may sound lame, but it’s true. They’re a major part of me growing up and were one of the bands that got me into heavier music. Oh and seeing them live a few yrs ago remains my fav concert ever.

    2. Scott is a fellow horror and metal fan. I love and need to hear his stories. I always enjoy interviews with him and think hearing him talk live would be even more awesome!

    3. I wanna meet him. Can’t lie. I’ve met Frank Bello, so I need to meet Scott. Maybe he could sign my Big 4 blu-ray, or I can get a pic with him. Or both! 😀

    The PE logo guitar single handily got me into Public Enemy.

    My mouth hit the fucking floor watching that SOD Live At Budokan VHS tape back in the day. (I was a bit too young to go to that show but I made damn sure I caught the reunion at Irving Plaza with Soulfly and Biohazard) *Max Cavalera step son benefit show 1996*

  4. Stephanie Call
    1. In an attempt to broden my artistic culture, being exposed to your spoken word show will be a first for me.
    2. I live in Las Vegas, as exciting as our city is, it lacks the history and culture of NYC .

  5. 1. I just want to pick his brain and see why they have covered such a vast array of artist and different genres. From metal (of course) to R&B, Hip Hop, Rock & Hard Rock.
    2. I want to get the story behind Anthrax recording with UTFO back in ’86. This was the actually their first Hip Hop collaboration.
    3. And got to talk about some The Walking Dead. I been into the show from the start but recently started to get into the comics. Would he like to be a zombie again.

    1. Congratulations Jerry you have won a ticket to see Scott Ian at B.B. King Blues Club on 3/5. Please stay tuned to the comments and watch for one from me that closes the contest and lines out the winner details.

  6. 1) I have read nothing but good things about Scott’s Spoken Word shows in Europe and the US and I have been dying to see one myself

    2) I want to hear stories about the early days w/ the BIG 4 starting out, Megaforce, Johnny Z, Cliff, how it all began

    3) No one else in hard rock or metal is doing this and I think it is really great and worth supporting.
