Joey Belladonna Was Anthrax's Second Choice?
"I wasn't their first choice to come back into this thing," said Joey. "Put it this way: If John said he wanted to do it, they probably would have taken him. If they would have done the Big 4 with him and it would be successful? Who knows? Would they finish the record? Who knows? If they didn't have a fight with a guy they first had to finish the record (Nelson) and would have put it out, they would have done that. To me, you got what you got."
Acknowledging the often complicated relationship with the rest of the band, Joey said, "We are a unique package of musicians and there's no band out there that has a lineup that, if you're trying to recreate it, you're not going to have much luck. For Anthrax, it's hard for us to pull it off. This thing is a little more intricate." more on this story
