Ian Back On Speaking Terms With Anthrax Singer
Scott Ian is thrilled he and his Anthrax bandmates managed to come together for a reunion tour earlier this year (06), because it allowed him to rekindle friendships he was convinced he had lost. The guitarist feared he and singer JOEY BELLADONNA would feud throughout the tour, making it a miserable experience - but Ian admits it has brought the two former foes closer than ever. He says, "It was our 20th anniversary and CHARLIE (BENANTE, drummer) said, 'Why not call him up and see if he and (DAN) SPITZ wanna get back and do it?' "It's been amazing. We've bonded as people again. I actually became friends again with a guy I thought I'd never speak to for the rest of my life."
