Metal Express Radio's Mick Burgess caught up with ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian during his spoken word tour. In the audio interview below they talk about the tour, having singer Joey Belladonna back in the band, recording a cover album, the upcoming DVD release and the future of Anthrax.
Scott Ian: "A creative decision should never be based on what's right for your business sometimes. At least, I know that's the opposite of the way business works but when you're in a band it's always been for us creative first, everything else comes second."

K.S. Wang reports: Lexus has been musician Scott Ian's car marque of choice in recent years. When he's not on the road for work - he's a co-founding member and the guitarist for the heavy metal band Anthrax - his 2013 Lexus RX 350 offers what he wants in a daily driver.
"I love my car. I've been driving a Lexus RX going on seven years now. I keep getting a new one. I don't have anything negative to say about my car. I got hooked on it around 2007, when I got my first one, and I just loved it right off the bat and leased it for three years and got a new one in 2010 and now a new one this year," he says. "I keep going back because I think it's a great car."
It's got everything he needs in a car. "I have enough to think about -- I just don't ever want to have to think about my car. I'm sure there's a lot of good cars out there but I just happened to be driving this one because seven years ago I read some stuff about the Lexus RX and I went and test drove it and it was awesome," he says. "I didn't look any further than that. It tells me when it's time for service -- the thing comes on in the dashboard on the little computer screen -- so I bring it in and an hour later it's done. It just makes my life really easy."
