    No, we're just ourselves. However who we are comes out in our music.

    Actually I live in Queens, N.Y. There was one piece of trivia. I heard early on Anthrax helped out Metallica since Metallica arrived in the same studio to record their first album, which is where Anthrax was recording at the time, and Anthrax pretty hooked up Metallica cause they were starving. I heard the studio was in Queens, N.Y.

    Living in Queens, I never knew of any studio (it was before my time), so I was wondering where it was so I could visit the site where 2 of the heaviest bands recorded their heaviest work (sorry if this 36 year old man now sounds like an insane obsessed teenager asking you these crazy questions). As far as I know it's probably gone now

    Hi Scott,

    It's a pleasure to have such a metal star on the forum, it's great!

    bit of a lame question, but i wanted to know, when did you start playing guitar, what made/who influenced you want to learn guitar and what guitar did you learn to play on?

    many thanks.

    Thanks! I remember my friends and I listening to that album in high school trying to figure out how to replicate that sound.

    Yes, and I have in the past but I am just too busy to be able to focus on that properly.

    Scott,
    What do the Big 4 concerts mean to you? Is it just another gig or do you step onstage and say, "Man, we're making history!"?

    Also, what did you think when you first heard Metallica's black album? I know on their Year and a Half in the Life of Metallica DVD, Bob Rock said James was hesitant to sing Nothing Else Matters because of what Anthrax would think. Thoughts?

    Scott:

    I own a Jackson JJ bass from the mid-90s. Very cool short scale with a single Basslines Music Man-style pickup and active electronics. What was your involvement in the development of that instrument and what were looking for with that bass?

    My Favorite album ever is Among The Living. What makes that album so special in Your eyes? How come that thing is so differenet than anything else you did, especially different than the albums you made before. What was the inspiration?
    Cheers, and happy new "Jewish" year

    It was called The Music Building and it was in Jamaica Queens. It's long gone.

    Thanks for your answers!

    I’ve noticed on a lot of your youtube vids that after you’re finished riffing, you appear to cut the volume by rolling it off with the underside of your hand in a swift motion (which looks really cool BTW).

    Do you have any other cool habits, techniques or tricks that you do?

    When I was 9. I saw Pete Townshend on TV doing his windmill and I asked for guitar lessons. I had an acoustic for about 6 months and then when my parents saw I was serious about it they bought me a Tele Deluxe.

    The Big 4 shows were definitely not just another gig. Those shows were the best shows I have ever played because it really put into perspective the fact that so many people all over the world care so much about what we do and that is amazing. It was a privilege for us to get to do those shows.

    I liked the Black album then and still do.
    Didn't know about what Bob Rock said. Funny.

    Huh. I didn't know there was a bass! So, no involvement at all!!

    Thanks a ton.

    Also, what made you move from Jackson, to Washburn, back to Jackson again? I always thought your Jacksons were the coolest.

    There are a lot of factors involved but mainly I think we had just gotten better as songwriters. It was our 3rd record and we had started to understand who we were as writers and what we wanted and we were able to get it.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I really don't ever think about my playing or what I do, I just do it. No tricks, just a lot of hard work.
