Anthrax's Scott Ian Left Ugly Impression On Fellow Guitarist


(Classic Rock) Fozzy and Stuck Mojo guitarist Rich Ward says Anthrax counterpart Scott Ian has behaved like a "total dick" to him twice - and it's taught him not to do the same to his own fans.

He describes the experiences as "ugly" because he's such a fan of Anthrax. But he refuses to make a permanent Judgement on Ian's character. Meanwhile, Ian has been named as the host of an upcoming radio show entitled Never Meet Your Heroes.

Ward says in a recent episode of Behind The Barricade: "The first time I met Scott Ian he was a total dick to me. And the second time I met Scott Ian he was a total dick to me.

"It was rough, because I'm a big fan. Even though I was making records and I already had success of my own, I was still a little kid in his presence, because Among The Living was a big record for me."

He adds: "I just remember, 'Don't be a dick to people, Rich, because you remember how it felt when he was to you. When you see something ugly in somebody else, just remember how ugly that looked." Read more here.
