How Anthrax's Scott Ian Made His Mother Scream

.
(Classic Rock) Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian has recalled how his mother let out a science-defying scream when he told her he wanted to become a full-time musician.

She'd hoped he would focus his energies on becoming a professional practitioner - and he admits she didn't take it well when he decided to concentrate on his heavy metal ambitions.

"At five foot four, I wasn't going to make it into the New York Yankees - my other dream. Being in a band just became my complete focus at the age of 14," Ian tells Shalom Life. "I dropped out of university in my first semester because I wanted to work full-time at my father's office to make money to buy equipment."

"When I finally got the nerve to tell her, the scream she let loose is still travelling through space and time at speeds unheard by science, I'm telling you." more on this story
