Anthrax's Scott Ian

Anthrax’s Scott Ian To Release New Book ‘Access All Areas: Stories From A Hard Rock Life’


Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian has announced plans for a second book release. His newest work will be titled ‘Access All Areas: Stories From A Hard Rock Life‘ and be released on December 12th through Da Capo Press.

The below official spiel was provided for the book, which you can pre-order now through Amazon.

Scott Ian, rhythm guitarist and cofounder of Anthrax and author of I’m the Man, collects all of his craziest hard rock stories into one balls-to-the-wall volume. Access All Areas has tales of humor, excess, fun, debauchery, food, booze, and mayhem from Scott‘s many years on the road as well as his encounters with celebrities like Dimebag Darrell, Trent Reznor/NIN, Madonna, Lemmy Kilmister, John Carpenter, Robert Trujillo (Metallica), Slayer, David Lee Roth, and many more.

In recent years, Scott Ian‘s “Speaking Words” club tours have drawn a devoted crowd of metal fans who love a good rock story. Ian has perfected his delivery, comic timing, and ability to highlight where the ridiculous meets the sublime. Best of all, Ian seems to lack the ability to be embarrassed, rendering Access All Areas howlingly funny, self-deprecating, and every bit as brash and brazen as one would expect from one of the original architects of speed metal.”

Ian will also be partaking in some signings/talking sessions in December to promote the book, including:

12/12 Ridgewood, NJ – Bookends
12/13 New York, NY – The Strand (signing & talking)
12/14 Huntington, NY – Book Revue (signing & talking)
12/15 West Hollywood, CA – Book Soup (signing & talking)
