Steve Harris, Geddy Lee and Geezer Butler Father Figures To Frank Bello

06/05/2014
.
(Classic Rock) Frank Bello says the fact he looked up to his bass playing heroes, Steve Harris, Geddy Lee and Geezer Butler, as father figures meant he was only ever going down one career path.

The Anthrax bassist grew up without a father and instead saw Steve Harris, Geddy Lee and Geezer Butler as surrogate dads. With the Maiden, Rush and Sabbath stars as childhood heroes, Bello says he was never going to be anything else other than a bassist.

He tells Ultimate Guitar: "My heroes were bass players. I guess everybody needs somebody to look up to. I didn't grow up with a dad so my heroes or father figures, guys to look up to that gave me a goal were my bass player guys.

"Steve Harris, Geddy Lee and Geezer Butler. Those guys made me want to play bass. And as far getting onstage, Kiss made me want to play onstage. So it was all these things. I really am very, very thankful for having music in my life because it's pretty easy to go a different way. more on this story
