GEAR

Scott is the co-founder and rhythm guitar player of Anthrax. Scott, with Anthrax helped create thrash metal in the early 80s.

Scott and Anthrax have sold over ten million records worldwide, have multiple Gold and Platinum record awards, have been nominated for a Grammy four times, and have toured the world since 1984 on over ninety something tours.

Scott had the idea to cover Public Enemy’s Bring The Noise back in 1990. Chuck D and Flav rapped on it and the two bands toured the world together kicking the asses of expectations and stereotypes. Scott takes no credit good or bad for any musical genre that came after.

Scott was very excited about the 25th anniversary of Anthrax’s debut album Fistful Of Metal in 2009 and is even more excited about the 30th anniversary of said record in January 2014.

Scott was also very excited about the March 2012 25th anniversary of Anthrax’s classic album Among The Living.
And while we’re on anniversaries, Anthrax celebrated their 32nd on July 18, 2013.

Scott wrote Lobo: Highway To Hell for DC Comics in 2009. Scott is currently writing his second series for DC featuring The Demon scheduled for a 2014 release. Scott is still amazed that he was asked to do this.

Scott hosted “Rock Show” on VH1 for a year and got to interview Ozzy Osbourne while dressed as Gene Simmons for Halloween.

Scott and Anthrax were part of the Big 4 alongside Metallica, Slayer and Megadeth. Scott had the highlight of his career in Anthrax when The Big 4 played Yankee Stadium in NYC on Sept 14 2011. That day was also officially proclaimed Anthrax day in the Bronx. Suck that everyone in high school.

Scott and Anthrax spent the summer of 2012 on the Rockstar Mayhem tour with their friends Motörhead, Slayer and Slipknot. It was like camp with guitars and Jäger.

Scott just finished touring with Anthrax for Worship Music, the bands tenth studio record. Released September 13, 2011, Worship Music entered the Billboard charts at number twelve and has been a huge commercial and critical success. Anthrax played 207 shows in support of Worship Music ending at the Battle Of San Bernardino with Iron Maiden September 13 2013, two years to the day Worship Music was released. That’s cool.
