Anthrax's Scott Ian Puts NYC Vs Boston Rivalry Aside After Bombing
Anthrax's Scott Ian is a native New Yorker and a huge Yankee fan, who often sports that team's logo on his clothes and even on his guitars. His fandom has also gotten him into trouble – he was actually arrested for allegedly trying to steal the on-deck circle from the Yankees' Florida training camp.
The New York Yankees/Boston Red Sox rivalry is one of the most well known in all of sports. But following the show, Ian tells Radio.com that those rivalries seemed insignificant when his band played Massachusetts.
"When I was onstage, someone threw a Boston Bruins hat, and I caught it at the microphone," he explained. "The kid was like, 'Put it on!' I was like, 'Do you know how hard it is for me to put on this hat?' People are pretty well aware that I'm from New York and I'm a New York fan. But this is a human thing, there's no boundaries anymore. I put the hat on, the place went nuts." More from Scott here.
