“We barely made it out alive”

“We barely made it out alive” - 2006-03-17

2006-03-17 - ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian has elaborated on his previous claim that the band could not have continued without a reunion of their &quot;classic&quot; lineup &#8212; featuring singer Joey Belladonna and guitarist Dan Spitz. Explaining that &quot;fucked-up contracts&quot; are the reason he cannot be more specific regarding the exact reasons behind the group's decision to rejoin forces with Belladonna and Spitz, Ian said, &quot;That's why I can't just answer a question. That's why I have to remain vague. Sorry, my ego just isn't that big. I don't need to hear myself speak. I can keep my mouth shut, especially when our lives in this business are on the line. [In a recent interview with Germany's Rock Hard magazine] John [Bush, ex-ANTHRAX singer] couldn't answer straight either [regarding the reasons for the reunion of the band's classic lineup]. You have to understand that sadly this is a business and for me to be specific would cause unbelievable damage to this band and all its individual members. We'd be done. Buried under a mountain of litigious bullshit and we wouldn't be able to dig ourselves out and continue this time. We barely made it out alive after 'Volume 8'. It would probably be easier for me to say nothing but I feel you [the ANTHRAX fans] deserve the respect you've earned from us. They may not be the answers you want but at least I'm here [to answer your questions]. I'm in the CDC [the official ANTHRAX fan club] all the time. I don't see anyone else being so proactive. This is my life and if you think for one second I take any of this for granted you are dead wrong. &quot;Over the next few months we expect the air to clear for us. Until that happens, mum is the word.&quot;<br><br>ANTHRAX are expected to begin work on a new studio album with Belladonna and Spitz later in the year.<br><br>&quot;More <a href="http://www.nuclearblast.de/band_showa.php?artist=464"><u>ANTHRAX</u></a>&quot;
