Scott Ian Turns 30...ish

Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian is celebrating a birthday today. According to the band's website, it's his 30th. "Yeah...30," the news pokes at the founding Anthrax member.

Born December 31, 1963 in New York City, I guess you could say he's celebrating the 15th anniversary of his 30th birthday, if you want to get technical. Whatever you do, make sure and drop the guy some birthday greetings. It can't be easy having a birthday that close to Christmas, especially once you factor in cake and all the food Ian apparently consumed over the holidays and 2008 as a whole. You can check out all the details of his on-going food coma here.

BlindGreed- I guess we can forgive him for not reading the article. Maybe he started his New Year's celebration early?

Hey VH1 isnt all bad Bruno. All he does is reminisce on I love the 80's (also showing he is much older than 30). But honestly folks, elts look at the important aspects of the man. Not his musical backround or his appearances on VH1....the real important stuff.......like his beard......what i would do to have that beard......
