Scott Ian of Anthrax's Baby Arrives Early

(RockAAA) Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian has hailed the arrival of his son as the best day of his life but despite the premature arrival of his first born he will still miss several of his band's live shows including a handful with the Big 4 of Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax.

Revel Young Ian arrived a healthy six pounds and nine ounces with his proud Dad tweeting: "it was the happiest day of his life."

During Ian's parental leave Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser is set to fill in for a handful of shows across Europe and the UK in July to allow Ian to spend time with his new born son and wife Pearl Aday daughter of rock legend Meatloaf. Speaking to RockAAA just last week backstage at the Download Festival Ian admitted the birth of his son was the only reason he would have missed out on playing with the Big 4.
