Anthrax axe-wielder Scott Ian is headed to these shores on his spoken word tour, imaginatively titled Speaking Words. We dropped him a line to find out why he thought people should head down. Yeah, we’ve totally got Scott Ian’s email address*.
“I guarantee FRONT readers who come to my show will have a good time,” he says. “There’s a saying, ‘there’s no story so good a drink won’t make it better’. My stories, plus drink, equals killer night out. Besides, don’t FRONT readers want to know how tomato sauce can kill any STD? I have the answers.”
It turns out, even on a speaking tour, he’s still got a rider and all. “Beer, water, salt & vinegar crisps, beer and a Mossberg 12-gauge shotgun to blow the roof off. That seems to go over really well.”
Scott’s UK and Ireland tour stars on 24 May and runs until 11 June. Dates and ticket availability are all on his site. There’s VIP options so you can meet the man and run your face on his awesome beard.
*No we don’t. His PR guy has though.
