What with Scott Ian heading out on a special spoken-word UK tour later this month, we thought we’d sit down with the man himself to ask him some burning questions.

Such as: What was his favourite musical experience ever, why we should all go and see his show and how many wanks is it acceptable to have in a day. Quality journalism right here, folks:

Remember us giving Anthrax‘s Scott Ian the mother of all high fives for setting a snowman on fire a few months back? Well, turns out it was part of his involvement in Fangoria’s Blood And Guts show, in which he gets to set more stuff on fire, play with guns and blow shit up.

We love you, Scott Ian. <3

Scott Ian: Chatty Man

Sat 25 May  Cardiff The Gate
Sun 26 May  Gloucester Guildhall
Mon 27 May  Plymouth White Rabbit
Wed 29 May  Rugby The Vault

“It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, and I’ve always been trying to figure out how can I do this, how would I ever make this possible,” he tells Decibel magazine about the upcoming trek. “I’ve seen [Henry] Rollins do it all these years; I saw Rollins, maybe on the first time he ever did a tour I went to see what it was going to be about. I mean, I am a huge fan of Rollins’ music and I had read all his books at the time, so I really knew that he had a point of view and something he needed to express and he did it really well. It’s something that I always wanted to do and I finally had the opportunity this year; doing this one-off show in London. I was approached by the band’s agent, who basically put it together, and asked, ‘Are you interested in doing this?’ And I said, ‘Absolutely. I’ve been kinda waiting for this to happen but I didn’t know how to kick-start it.’ I did the one show in London and I enjoyed myself so much, I had such a good time with it that I was like, ‘Can I do more of this? How do we do more of this?’ They came back and said, ‘There’s a lot of interest in it, do you wanna do a tour?’ I was like, ‘Sign me up! Let’s find a window when it works and go and do it.’”

Anthrax: now minus one Rob

Asked where he got the material from and whether it was something that he had sketched out in advance, Scott said: “No! I did absolutely zero rehearsal. I didn’t even know how to prepare for it, truthfully. The show was booked months in advance, and I had all these months to think about it, and think, ‘Okay, I’m going to put a whole show together… ‘ Because I am friends with a lot of stand-up comedians and a lot of writers, and I am a big fan of comedy and certainly live stand-up comedy. I’ve seen my friends do it and I think that it’s the most challenging thing in the world just to sit down, write jokes, get on stage and make people laugh. I mean, I think that’s the hardest thing in the entertainment industry. It doesn’t get any more raw than that, and I am certainly not a joke writer nor am I a stand-up comedian, but I just feel that my life is, in so many ways, ridiculous. The last 32 years of my life spent in a metal band; I’ve got so many stories, whether it’s shit that I’ve done, people that I’ve met, stories that I know from other people … I’ve kinda been in this bubble for so long. I sit around in bars with my friends and I’ll get around to telling stories, as we all do, and most of my friends are in this industry or connected to it somehow, so we all have stories and we all sit down and tell stories to each other and crack each other up. I always felt that people need to hear this stuff. This shit is hilarious. It’s just a really fun thing for me to do, to relate to people on that level. That’s what it is. That’s what the material is; it’s shit that I have been through in my life.”

Meanwhile, Anthrax are yet to announce their new guitarist after the departure of Rob Caggiano last month.

Scott Ian: Chatty Man

It’s shit like this that makes us love Scott Ian that little bit more. This was posted via his Twitter today:

DAFUQ YOU KNOW ABOUT SNOW

Scott Ian from Anthrax flamethrowing a snowman. Sure.

After the success of his London Garage show last month, Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian recently announced a full spoken-word UK tour – and we’re sponsoring it, because we bloody love Scott Ian, we do.

“My first ‘Speaking Words’ tour and I get to do it in the UK and Ireland? Really? Wow, how fucking cool is that!,” says Scott. “My one-off show in London went so well and now I get to speak words at you all over the place. Thank you for having a superior sense of humour.

“I’m calling it ‘Speaking Words’ because the pretension of saying I am doing a ‘Spoken Word’ tour is too much to bear. This ain’t no poetry reading. This isn’t an evening of sensitive discourse.

Scott Ian with his day job

“It’s an evening of ridiculous truth. It’s me talking (swearing) about this insane life I’ve led over the last 31 years, the people I’ve met and the shit that’s happened. And when I’m done swearing, you can ask me anything you want, the floor is yours. Cheers my friends, see you in May and June.”
