Anthrax's Joey Belladonna Has Never Felt At Home In The Band

(Classic Rock) Anthrax frontman Joey Belladonna has admitted he's never felt fully at home in the band - and likens his experience to "coming into a new neighbourhood".

He returned to the thrash giants in 2010 for a third stint after they'd experienced a bout of line-up insecurity, having split with John Bush then hired and fired Dan Nelson, brought Bush back then finally settled with their classic-era singer.

They returned to action with 2011 album Worship Music and work is under way on the follow-up. But Belladonna, the only 1980s member of the band who isn't from New York City, tells Sweden Rock Magazine: "I don't think I've ever really found my place with this band.

"You're joining four guys that are friends - it's like coming into a new neighbourhood and trying to get new friends. They were open to me, but they weren't doing anything either way to make me feel like it was going to be the best thing in the world. It was more businesslike."

He says the feeling has continued to this day. Read what he had to say here.
