Anthrax's Benante Looks Back At Bad Momentum Period


(Classic Rock) Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante says the band could have used more of a guiding hand following the release of 1991 album Persistence Of Time. It was the last record with frontman Joey Belladonna before he returned for 2011's Worship Music. And the sticksman says that record label issues and the fact the band were "arrogant" led to the start of their "bad momentum period."

Benante tells One On One With Mitch Lafon: "I don't have many regrets. I just wish that maybe we weren't so arrogant about things or even ignorant about certain things. Maybe if there were people around us saying 'no' rather than 'yes, let them do whatever they want,' maybe things would have changed here and there."

He adds: "There was that period in the 90s where it wasn't good. But I don't think we could have prevented what was happening. Heavy metal was just a bad name and I think we all had to ride it through." Read more here.
