Legendary heavy metal musician, author, and television personality SCOTT IAN had a lot to say on the European and United States legs of his groundbreaking Speaking “Swearing Words” Tour. After decades-worth of international touring with Anthrax, bumping elbows with illustrious (and sometimes ridiculous) characters all over the media spectrum, and undergoing general “you won’t believe this” experiences— SCOTT IAN certainly had some hilarious and surprisingly personal stories to share.
“Swearing Words” is an honest look at the insane life that Scott has led for the last 31 years, the people he’s met, and the events that coincide. Now, you can experience Scott’s “Swearing Words” Tour by way of Swearing Words in Glasgow, available via Megaforce Records on November 13, 2014.
The Swearing Words in Glasgow DVD is a full performance recording, filmed towards the end of the tour run in Glasgow, Scotland, and is being funded by a wildly popular PledgeMusic campaign, which surpassed its goal with the help of gracious and dedicated fans!

Interview with Scott Ian

As founding guitarist for one of thrash metal’s Big 4 bands as well as cult legends Stormtroopers of Death, television personality, occasional zombie, aspiring card sharp and son-in-law of rock legend Meatloaf, among many other things, Anthrax founder Scott Ian has seen and done enough during his long career in show business to fill a book, which, as it turns out, he is now writing. Ian signed on with De Capo Press last November for said memoir, called “I’m The Man” and written with the assistance of music scribe Jon Weiderhorn, in order to, as he says, “share all these killer stories” of everything he’s experienced over the past 30-plus years.
Ian’s actually been doing a lot story telling over the past couple years as it is. After being invited by a U.K. promoter to take part in a spoken-word series called “Rock Stars Say the Funniest Things” in London in 2012, Ian did several additional shows in Australia with wrestler/rocker Chris Jericho last year before launching his own “Speaking Words” tour in Europe. He kicked off a U.S. leg of the tour on Feb. 20 that will run through March 8. Just before heading out on the tour, Ian announced a crowd-funding campaign through Pledge Music to raise money for the release of a DVD of a “Speaking Words” performance in Glasgow, Scotland.
On the phone from his home in Los Angeles, Ian offered the following on his new sideline as spoken word performer, his appearance on “The Walking Dead,” late-Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman and what the future may or may not hold for additional Big 4 shows.
Brian Posehn is a lifelong heavy metal fan in addition to being a popular actor, comedian and comic book writer. It would only make sense then; for Brian to team up with metal musician pals like Scott Ian (Anthrax) Satchel (Steel Panther) Joey Vera (Armored Saint) and John Tempesta (White Zombie, ex-Testament) to record two songs for the 2006 Relapse Records release "Brian Posehn – Live In: Nerd Rage" album. A disc that showcases the stand up routine of heavy metal’s resident funnyman alongside his first musical output. The result is hilarious to say the least, with the single "Metal By Numbers" gawking at "Nu-Metal" and "Emo" posers. The single even spawned a very silly music video.
Now riding a generous wave of notoriety from his work on the hit Comedy Central program "The Sarah Silverman Show" Brian is gearing up to record a follow up record. I caught up with Brian recently on a particularly drizzly afternoon at the second day of this years "Fun Fun Fun Fest" in Austin, Texas where he was performing his stand up routine on an eclectic bill that also featured headliner Danzig and crossover legends D.R.I. amongst indie rock, alternative and hip hop acts. Brian filled me in on how he originally got into metal music, his plan’s for his metal band "Posehn" the upcoming season of "The Sarah Silverman Show" and his recently released zombie comic "The Last Christmas" You can expect quite a bit from Brian next year including a new album, touring and more laughs. Be sure to catch him live when he comes to town!
