Video footage of ANTHRAX guitarist Rob Caggiano discussing the details of his ESP and LTD Signature Series guitars can be seen in two parts below.
ANTHRAX recently spent time in the studio recording several cover versions of some of their favorite rock classics, to be included with the upcoming re-release of the band’s latest album, “Worship Music”.
In addition to RUSH and BOSTON covers, ANTHRAX is also recording its versions of AC/DC‘s “T.N.T.”, JOURNEY‘s “Keep On Runnin'” and BLACK SABBATH‘s “Neon Knights”. The latter song is expected to appear on the upcoming Ronnie James Dio tribute album which is being assembled by the singer’s widow and longtime manager Wendy Dio.
“Obviously, there’s a ton of [Dio-sung songs] you can pick,” Scott said. “But when Wendy Dio asked us to be on the record, it was kind of the first one… I think it was both Charlie [Benante, drums] and I, almost at the same time, [we were like], ‘Let’s do ‘Neon Knights’.’ Just like that. We’ve kind of been jamming on that song forever as it is. It’s just one of those ones that we probably would have recorded anyway at some point. So this just gave us the excuse to finally go do it.
“It’s kind of crazy. We were in Europe in June playing festivals, and the MACHINE HEAD guys were in the dressing room, or we were on the bus or something, and we put it on, and I think it was Phil Demmel [MACHINE HEAD guitarist], he was like, ‘Wow, where’s that from? Ronnie sounds amazing!’ And we were like, ‘That’s Joey [Belladonna, ANTHRAX singer].’ [laughs]”
