Legendary Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian has shared a photo of his bloody face on Instagram. As we saw in the photo, he’s playing guitar in the studio.
He stated with this caption:
“You should see the other guy.”
We don’t know the real reason of the bleeding. You can see the photo below.
Back in November 2018, he talked with BBC Radio 1, and explained why Slayer is very special for him. He said that ‘Slayer was “probably the last band” that I got in the moshpit for’, and continued:
“The first time we met, we were all hanging out at a Mercyful Fate show at L’Amour [in Brooklyn]; it would have been late ’84, early ’85-ish. They were in town, and I remember a bunch of beers, certainly with Jeff [Hanneman, guitar] and Tom [Araya, bass/vocals], I remember specifically having beers with them.
And then the first time I saw them [perform] would have been right around that time too, I think at L’Amour in Brooklyn, and yeah, they were great. I’m pretty sure that’s the show my brother broke his nose in the pit; he got slammed across the face [and was] bleeding and [he] left the pit.
I went to check on him, and he’s, like, ‘My nose is broken,’ and then five minutes later, he was back in the pit. I remember it being a great show and everyone in New York being very excited to see those guys.”
Slayer was “probably the last band” that I got in the moshpit for. I’m thinking even into the 2000s at some point, I think I still got in the pits for Slayer; they were like the last band. I just couldn’t control myself.”
