Shorts! Anthrax's frontman Scott Ian made it okay to sing heavy metal in shorts. I may not be a big fan of Anthrax but who can pass off such songs like 'Indians', 'Caught In A Mosh' & 'Antisocial'"
"Met Scott Ian after a Dallas club show they did. I'd caught the band's attention that night by wearing my Public Enemy t-shirt & John Bush motioned for me to come forward in the crowd so he & I could do "bring the noise" together."
"Once my 2nd favorite Metal band (late 80s), I didn't get to see them until John Bush was singing with them. Great energy though, & one of my personal highlights was when I wore my Public Enemy shirt to see them & was called up front to do "bring the noise" with them."
