Charlie Benante hasn’t been manning the kit on Anthrax’s current 29-city European trek. Instead, Jon Dette is filling in for him.
Jon is known for his work with Slayer and Testament, and did some time with Iced Earth.
Benante had surgery on his hand last summer and has been going for regular physical therapy up until just recently.
“Playing [recent] shows, I realized I’m just not quite there yet,” Charlie said in an online post, “especially for the schedule Anthrax has on these European dates. I’m hoping to join the tour for the last couple of weeks, but until then, we all appreciate that Jon can sit in for me.”
