Anthrax Guitarist Pays Tribute To Author
Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian has posted the following statement with regards to the death of author Hunter S. Thompson, who committed suicide on February 20th:
"We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold." I can't think of a better opening line to a book. Especially when you were reading it at 17 in a small apartment in the middle of a NYC winter. Hunter S. Thompson's "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas" changed my life. It made me realize that there was more to books than my limited world of silver age Marvel Comics and vampires named Barlow. The man was legend. He lived life larger than I thought possible.
He is the most influential journalist in my lifetime. I was lucky enough to get my copy of "Fear And Loathing" signed. Here's what he wrote (exactly):
To Scott Ian,
Love Jesus, stay humble & lay off the fat young boys.
