Publisher's Summary

I'm the Man is the fast-paced, humorous, and revealing memoir from the man who cofounded Anthrax, the band that proved to the masses that brutality and fun didn't have to be mutually exclusive. Through various lineup shifts, label snafus, rock 'n' roll mayhem, and unforeseen circumstances galore, Scott Ian has approached life and music with a smile, viewing the band with deadly seriousness while recognizing the ridiculousness of the entertainment industry. Always performing with abundant energy that revealed his passion for his craft, Ian has never let the gravity of being a rock star go to his shaven, goateed head.
I'm the Man is a blistering hard rock memoir, one that is astonishing in its candor and deftly told by the man who's kept the institution of Anthrax alive for more than 30 years.

I was excited to see this book having been an Anthrax fan since the beginning, I loved Fist of Metal when it came out, i believe I saw them for the first time at the Bronco bowl in Dallas around 85 or 86, and several more times since, I remember the original Pantera look he speaks of, having seen them hundreds of times. Having said that, I was disappointed to find out how much damage he did to the band over the years, and takes little or no responsibility for all the bad decision he made while he was supposedly at the helm,,, nono it wasnt me, it was Electra, what ever. He spouts new found wisdom as if the rest of the world didnt get that all worked out in their early 20s. Thanks for the sermon genius.
