    Default Q&A with Scott Ian - 9/8/10 2-3PM Pacific




    In a career spanning three decades, Scott Ian, as the founding member of Anthrax, helped to create the “New Wave of American Heavy Metal” in the mid-‘80s alongside Metallica. Three-time Grammy nominated, MTV VMA nominees, and Multi-Platinum and Gold Awarded music veterans, Anthrax, have sold over 10 million records worldwide including nine studio albums, two live albums, and two greatest hits collections. Touring pros, Anthrax has performed on over 50 tours spanning the globe; in 32 countries on five continents including Europe, North America, South America, Australia, and Asia.

    Pushing the envelope in the metal genre to its bursting point in 1991, Scott came up with the idea to cross over with rap pioneers Public Enemy and record what was to become the foundation of the Rap/Rock genre that exploded in the ‘90s. With their hit “Bring The Noise,” Anthrax reached new heights kicking open the door for such bands as Rage Against The Machine, Limp Bizkit, Kid Rock, and Linkin Park. In 2005, Scott was invited by Chuck D of Public Enemy to perform “Bring The Noise” with them as part of their induction into VH1’s Hip Hop Honors Hall Of Fame. Scott also joined Public Enemy on the Rock The Bells tour in the summer of 2007.

    Continually recording and touring through the ‘90s and into the new millennium, Anthrax has maintained the kind of career that only a handful of others can lay claim to. 2009 saw the band celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of its debut album Fistful Of Metal. Scott is widely known as the face of Anthrax and for being a constant and extremely recognizable figure in the worlds of music and television.

    Scott parlayed his success with the band into a television gig with VH1 in 2001 when they asked him to host “Rock Show.” During his 48 episodes as host, Scott interviewed numerous celebrity guests and friends including; Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Halford, Ted Nugent, Stone Temple Pilots, Megadeth, Three Doors Down, Sevendust, Tenacious D, and The Cult.

    Scott is also a regular commentator on various VH1 shows including the “I Love The 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s” series, “100 Most Metal Moments”, “Awesomely Bad Number One Songs”, “When Metallica Ruled The World”, Metallica’s “Behind The Music”, Pantera’s “Behind The Music” and Anthrax’s own “Behind The Music.” Scott was prominently featured in VH1’s “History Of Heavy Metal”.

    In June of 2006 Scott starred in the VH1 reality series “SuperGroup” with Ted Nugent, Sebastian Bach, Jason Bonham and Evan Seinfeld. The show was a huge success and once again pushed the boundaries of Scott’s career to new heights. Scott is currently in the studio recording what will be the 10th studio album by Anthrax scheduled for a 2011 release. Scott is also in the studio recording the debut album for his side band The Damned Things to be released through Island/Def Jam in January 2011.

    Anthrax just played the Sonisphere Festival in Europe where for the first time in history The Big Four; Metallica, Anthrax, Slayer and Megadeth performed together on the same stage for seven historic shows. The show in Sofia Bulgaria was streamed live into 1000 movie theaters worldwide and was filmed/recorded for a DVD release this fall.

    Scott is also playing guitar in the group Pearl who just finished two tours with Velvet Revolver and Meat Loaf. The debut album from Pearl came out on January 19, 2010 through Megaforce Records. Scott performed with Pearl on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Jan 20, 2010.

    Scott is a long-time Seymour Duncan user who has a Custom Shop Signature pickup, the El Diablo. Scott will join the Seymour Duncan User Group Forum for a live one-hour Q&A on Wednesday, September 8, 2010 from 2:00PM to 3:00PM Pacific Time. Make sure to mark your calendars now and join the chat early if you're going to ask a question, as this is guaranteed to be very widely attended. In order for Scott to post as many responses as possible, please don't ask multiple-part questions.

    Y'know, I always liked the guitar tone in SOD and even thought at times it was vaguely Anthrax-like. I never knew the connection until now though. Cool!

    DAMMIT. I love Scott, but I'm working during those hours.

    Please tell him I said and don't ever stop.

    cool - I always thought his guitar with no frets from the 12th fret on up was hilarious.
