Anthrax's Scott Ian to Write Memoir for Fall 2014 Release

Anthrax's Scott Ian and publisher Da Capo Press has announced the guitarist will release a memoir titled I'm the Man.

“Why a book? Because I think my story can connect with anyone and, if I was able to make the life I wanted for myself happen, then anyone can,” Ian says. “I’m really excited to be writing a book because the idea of getting forty-something years of stuff out of my brain and onto the page seems very therapeutic. Plus if I didn’t do it now, I’d start forgetting and wouldn’t be able to share all these killer stories with you, my friends!”

The book will cover topics such as his adolescence in a dysfunctional home, escapism through the turbulent world of heavy metal, and the complete history of Anthrax starting with the band’s formation through the present day. It will also feature full-color autobiographical comic book inserts.

Ian will be working with Revolver Senior Writer John Wiederhorn, co-author of the books Louder Than Hell: The Definitive Oral History of Metal and Ministry: The Lost Gospels According to Al Jourgensen. The book is scheduled for a fall 2014 release.
