In a new interview with Ben Brodie of BenFillsIn.com, Anthrax’s Scott Ian talked about his proudest achievement.
“I’ve been playing guitar since I was nine, so that’s 47 years ago. ANTHRAX started in 1981, so it’s safe to say, since ’81. Next year will be our 40th anniversary, with ANTHRAX. So, yeah, a lot of time — would be my answer. 40 years of my life playing guitar in ANTHRAX. There’s not many bands that last that long and are still making records and still touring and doing it at the level that we do it and with the energy that we do it.
“People always ask me, ‘What’s the proudest thing of your career? What are you most proud of?’ And it’s that — it’s my career.”
“It’s the fact that we’ve been a band for so long, and we get to keep doing this. I still get to play guitar in ANTHRAX. For me, that’s the thing I’m most proud of.”
