Anthrax Guitarist Comments On Ep.3 Of "Supergroup"

ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian has commented on episode three of "SuperGroup", the VH1 "reality" TV program starring Ian, Ted Nugent, former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach, ex-BIOHAZARD bassist/vocalist Evan Seinfeld and drummer Jason Bonham (BONHAM, UFO, FOREIGNER). Filming for the program commenced on February 22, with the premise being to lock several musicians in a house for 12 days and get them to write and record some new original music. In addition to the five musicians, star manager Doc McGhee (KISS) was in charge for the duration of filming/recording. The all-star band — dubbed DAMNOCRACY — also performed a headlining set at the Empire Ballroom in Las Vegas on March 5.

Commented Scott: "I thought episode 3 kicked ass. They just keep getting better. I love in episode 3 when Doc says that the song [that DAMNOCRACY wrote and demoed on the show] would be a great song in 1982 but not in 2006. I take that as a compliment. Rob Cavallo [producer] says it's dated. Dated? Hmmm, the guy that produces GREEN DAY who sound exactly like the BUZZCOCKS says we sound dated. Interesting. I guess the WHITE STRIPES sound dated as well. And PEARL JAM and JOSS STONE and everyone else that sounds like '70s music. Or bands like AVENGED SEVENFOLD that are straight out of '80s thrash. Are they dated? Why is dated a negative? I understand being objective, it's just that dated to me is not a negative. We're playing music that we love and organically created. What should we sound like? What is current? Should we have forced ourselves to sound like something we're not? That would've been the lamest and most transparent thing we could've done. They wanted us to cover a KELLY CLARKSON song. That was their idea. I actually went as far as to learn it, be open-minded and all, and quickly realized it would've been so fucking retarded for us to do that. Duh. Hey, I'm an open-minded kind of guy. That song works for her, not for DAMNOCRACY. Anyway, hopefully we will finish these demos and you'll get to hear what we did. Let us know if you want to hear it. Maybe that will light a fire under our asses."
