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."

VH1's "Supergroup" To Premiere In May

US TV network VH1 is bringing together some of the biggest names in heavy metal to star in a new reality show.

Supergroup will bring together Ted Nugent, Anthrax's Scott Ian, Skid Row's Sebastian Bach, Evan Seinfeld (Biohazard) and Jason Bonham (Bonham, UFO) to create a new band.

The rockers will live together for two weeks in Las Vegas, Nevada and film seven episodes for the show.

VH1 executive Michael Herschorn says, "What I liked about SuperGroup was that is combined elements that have worked so well for us (before), with an organic music idea."

The musicians will endure boot-camp style training from iconic rock manager Doc McGhee, in preparation for a concert at Las Vegas nightclub Rain.

SuperGroup began filming Wednesday (Feb. 22) and will premiere 18 May.

The new band members have not committed to staying together beyond the filming of the show, but plans to record a single are being discussed

Biohazard Is Done, Frontman Comments

In a recent interview with Britain's Zero Tolerance magazine, BIOHAZARD guitarist/vocalist Billy Graziadei confirmed that the band's recently released tenth album, "Means to an End", will also be their last: BIOHAZARD are splitting up.

"It was a natural progression with the band," Billy said. "We've grown in different areas. I have a daughter and I'm focusing now on my other band SUICIDE CITY [also featuring former KITTIE bassist Jennifer Arroyo]; Danny [Schuler, drums] has three kids now, so things have really changed for him; Evan [Seinfeld, vocals and bass] is doing his big porno-acting thing now, and that's cool. One of the things about BIOHAZARD is that it's your life, your way. So to each his own.

"I think over the years we just grew apart," Billy continued. "I've come to a stage in my life where I've come full circle and music is only for pleasure now. Don't get me wrong, I always dug it, always enjoyed it, I've had a fucking great time, but I didn't know any better. All I had was music. But my reality now is that I have a family and we've got to pay the bills. I'm no different from you — we've both got to buy the same token to ride a train, you know? So I'm back in the workforce, hanging out with my buddies at the weekend and dealing with the bullshit so I can enjoy the pleasures of life, like making music."

"Means to an End" is available now on SPV Records.

Porn-Star Wife on Biohazard Frontman

Adult film superstar Tera Patrick recently spoke to Steppin' Out magazine about a number of topics, including her husband, BIOHAZARD frontman Evan Seinfeld (who stars with Patrick in her movies under the name Spyder Jones). An excerpt from the interview follows:

Steppin' Out: Let's talk about your husband, Evan Seinfeld, who starred on the HBO series "Oz" and is well known as the front man for the metal band BIOHAZARD. Is it true you won't have sex on film with any other male except Evan?

Tera Patrick: "That's true. Not only do I do films with my husband, he's also my bouncer, my roadie, and he's in charge of the money."

Steppin' Out: Doesn't it ruin it for the fans when their favorite porn star is married and only doing films with her husband?

Tera Patrick: "I think you're right. I think it does ruin the illusion a little bit. But I also think my fans are happy to get me any way they can."

Steppin' Out: Is Evan the jealous type?

Tera Patrick: "He doesn't get jealous at all. He loves me and accepts me. I've slept with a lot less men than many college girls. Please, he's a rock star. He's been a rock star for twenty years. There's nothing I could do or tell him that would shock him. Know what I'm saying? He's much more scandalous than me! We're both very happy and in love. I hope I haven't disappointed too many fans, but most of my fans have stood behind me."

Steppin' Out: What's your attraction to Evan?

Tera Patrick: "He's a man who can do anything. He's so strong. He's got so much confidence and I can trust him. He can do anything! Plus, he's hot! My career has never been better because of him."
