It should come as no surprise that some epic musicians come off as jaded, bored, or misogynistic during interviews. Or just plain fried.
Not Anthrax founder/guitarist Scott Ian. He's refreshingly sweet and impossibly enthusiastic for a guy in a band named after a disease he read about in a biology textbook in 1981 because it sounded "sufficiently evil" to the members. He's a legendary musician, one who has achieved such longevity on the heavy metal circuit but he doesn't act like a big shot, and he seemingly never tires of chatting lightheartedly with the press.
