    Oh for sure!! Even if it was just a side project, or a project to try and kick Scott and Charlie into gear it would be good. I think Joey still has the energy and balls to lead any band, Frankie's also full of life and has a great presence on stage but they always seem to play second fiddle to Scott and Charlie. Okay we all have bosses we have to pander to at times, but shit Joey and Frankie kicking arse on stage with Jon and whoever else would be great.

    Hmmm, I'm guessing he'll go wherever the money is.

    Well that's not with anything LiveNation do apparently :)
    It's gotta suck for a band like Anthrax who have chosen the festival life as their desired path. On one hand it's relatively easy to play festivals, they are mid tier so that don't have to (but can) organise advertising, they don't have to organise crowds and they have little risk because they aren't the ones putting their butts on the financial line. But to be that band you have to accept LiveNation's terms which as we've seen recently are woeful and cover 90% of the festivals world wide. However on the other side if they do headline tours, gigs in venues with a support act, the risk is so much greater and the outlay becomes greater.

    Okay, I'll ring Joey, you ring Frankie. (While you're on the phone to Frankie ask him if his mate Jnr can send up some samples from the new album)

    Scott's reward for doing little is playing on albums like Pohsen's. Charlie's is that he gets to do Billy Eilish covers with his new squeeze.

    That would be cool, especially considering Anthrax has done cover songs of side projects, i.e. SOD

    Joey, Frankie, Dan Spitz, and a couple other musicians would be a killer side project

    Anthrax has become a nostalgia act a long, long time ago, let's face the truth

    Yep I do agree, and was being polite suggesting it was a recent thing.
    In some ways there is nothing wrong with that, but they really should be more than just a nostalgia act, they were one of the Big 4 for god sake.

    You can't put "Dan Spitz" and "killer project" in one sentence unless you are really joking.

    Sad? The guy has worked and studied to be one of the best in his field, he's achieved success in an industry few others want to. Sure it would have been nice to see him stay with Anthrax but just because his career changed tracks doesn't make it sad a life. His heart attack wouldn't have been a good experience, but reports suggest he's recovered from that. There was some rocky roads in his life but no rockier than the rest of us, his roads were just more public. At least with his TMNT guitar he would fit into the nostalgia thing well.

    sad as in he went thru a stage where he hated his instrument and lost his love for music for quite a few years,would have loved for him to still be a part of anthrax but I guess some things aren't meant to be.

    If Red Lamb had been a better album he may have stuck around. I think he gave Mustaine too much input.
    I'd love to have on of his watches. That would be so cool.
