This is the story of a Jewish kid from Queens who started a heavy metal band… As one of the first thrash metal inventors (with Anthrax), metal/rap crossover initiator, non-fiction & comic book author, horror movie expert, TV star, son-in-law to Meat Loaf… shall we go on?
One of the metal worlds most recognisable, praised and iconic figures, Scott Ian, will be in Australia for a series of spoken word events this September!
In Scott’s own words, “One Man Riot is what I call my talking show because the pretension of saying I am doing a ‘Spoken Word’ show is too much to bear. This isn’t a poetry reading. This isn’t an evening of sensitive discourse. It’s an evening of ridiculous truth. It’s me talking (swearing) about this insane life I’ve led over the last 38 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. Cheers my friends.”
The co-founding rhythm guitarist of ‘Big 4’ legends Anthrax practically invented Thrash Metal and in a career spanning nearly four decades remains as vital as ever.
Scott’s rapid-fire riffs, unmistakable crunchy tone and incisive lyrics continue to spawn generations of new bands who wear Anthrax’s influence on their tattooed sleeves.
Now, fans can hear and see Scott on stage in an entirely different way, behind a mike, telling wildly entertaining road stories about the people he has met, crazy experiences he has had and all the mischief, shenanigans and backstage antics he and his peers have gotten into over the past 38 years of touring the world!
