Anthrax’s Scott Ian wants to be the next Henry Rollins.
At least that’s my guess. Scott just announced a full spoken-word tour, being sponsored by Metal Hammer.
The tour will only make stops in the United Kingdom, and we have the full list of dates at the end of this post.
“My first ‘Speaking Words’ tour and I get to do it in the U.K. and Ireland? Really? Wow, how fucking cool is that!,” says Ian.
That’s pretty fucking cool, dude.
“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 humor.
“I’m calling it ‘Speaking Words’ because the pretension of saying I am doing a ‘spoken-word’ tour is too much to bear,” he adds. “This ain’t no poetry reading. This isn’t an evening of sensitive discourse. 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.”
