You know you wanna pay good money to see Anthrax’s guitarist do his best Henry Rollins impression, recounting stories from over the ages and speaking his mind on various issues.
Wait, you don’t? I don’t know you anymore. It’s like you’ve turned into someone else overnight. That’s it — I’m moving out!
Sorry. Had a flashback there. So, yes, bearded Anthrax member Scott Ian will head out on a “Speaking Words” tour of North America this February.
“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. 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.”
Here’s when and where Ian will be making these speaking engagements.
