Anthrax Drummer Now Sees Caggiano's Departure As A Bit Sketchy

(Classic Rock) Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante describes Rob Caggiano's departure from the band, followed by his decision to join Volbeat, as seeming "a bit sketchy."

The guitarist surprised his bandmates and fans alike by announcing he'd quit last month, saying he wanted to concentrate on production in the near future, and later adding his time with the thrash giants hadn't been creative.

His first desk job was with Volbeat but earlier this week he confirmed that, as a result of the studio work, he'd joined the band full-time.

Benante tells Metal Insider, "I know a lot of our fans were sad to see him go, but were like, 'If you want to go produce, we understand that.' But when you read that he went to go join another band, that makes it seem a bit sketchy." Read the rest of what he had to say here.
