August 31, 2014, 6 months ago
On October 14th, DaCapo Press will publish the long–awaited and vastly entertaining autobiography of Anthrax guitarist and spoken wordsmith Scott Ian, entitled I'm The Man. The official book release party will be held October 10th at Largo in Los Angeles, CA and tickets are on sale now at this location. Doors open at 7:00pm, the show starts at 8:00pm, admission is $30.
In this fast–paced, humorous, and revealing memoir from guitarist Scott Ian - the leader of a band that proved brutality and fun don’t have to be mutually exclusive - Ian tells his life story, starting with his upbringing as a nerdy Jewish boy in Queens, who had his first musical epiphany when he saw The Who on television. Not long after that, he saw KISS at Madison Square Garden and realized what he wanted to do with his life. I’m the Man covers Ian’s dysfunctional home life and his escape through the turbulent world of heavy metal. It also chronicles the complete history of Anthrax, from the band’s formation to their triumphant performance at Ian’s beloved Yankee Stadium on the Big Four Tour with Metallica, Slayer, and Megadeth.
Scott Ian had a lot to say on the European and United States legs of his groundbreaking Speaking “Swearing Words” Tour. After decades-worth of international touring with Anthrax, bumping elbows with illustrious (and sometimes ridiculous) characters all over the media spectrum, and undergoing general “you won’t believe this” experiences - he certainly had some hilarious and surprisingly personal stories to share.
Swearing Words is an honest look at the insane life that Scott has led for the last 31 years, the people he’s met, and the events that coincide. Now, you can experience Scott’s Swearing Words Tour by way of Swearing Words In Glasgow, available via Megaforce Records on November 13th.
The Swearing Words In Glasgow DVD is a full performance recording, filmed towards the end of the tour run in Glasgow, Scotland, and is being funded by a wildly popular PledgeMusic campaign, which surpassed its goal with the help of gracious and dedicated fans!
