Anthrax's Scott Ian Releasing Memoir


Scott Ian, Anthrax's guitarist and co-founder of the band has recently sold his memoir to book publisher Perseus' Da Capo Press.  The memoir titled 'I'm The Man' will have a next year released sometime in fall 2014.  Scott will be co-writing the book with Jon Wiederhorn, a senior writer at Revolver Magazine.  He will help him get his incites of his upbringing "in a dysfunction home".  The book will also feature a full-color autobiographical comic book series.

Scott Ian had this to say about the project:

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. 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!
