Rob Caggiano quitte Anthrax
Le fameux guitariste, après une douzaine d’années passées au service de la tumultueuse machinerie thrash, décide de prendre le vent afin de se consacrer à son autre passion : la production. Il s’est déjà fait la main par le passé (Cradle Of Filth, The Damned Things, Jesse Malin, mais aussi… Anthrax, avec le dernier Worship Music). L’avenir dira si une nouvelle ère démarre ou non pour ses ex-compères.
Copie du communiqué de Caggiano :
I’m extremely proud of my time in Anthrax. Actually, that’s an understatement! We accomplished so many great things together over the years and I shared some of the best times of my life with these guys. As a band, we also weathered quite a few storms along the way. It’s been a wild ride (to say the least) from Day One and I wouldn’t change one single thing about the last 12 years.
This is an extremely difficult and emotional decision for me to make, but my heart is just steering me in a different direction right now. I’ve always been one to follow my heart in everything that I do and while this might be one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make, it feels like the right one for me at this time. Scott [Ian, guitar], Charlie [Benante, drums], Joey [Belladonna, vocals], Frankie [Bello, bass] (and [former Anthrax singer] John Bush) will always be part of my family and this decision doesn’t change the way I feel about that in the slightest. I would also like to say thanks to all the amazing fans I’ve met and hung out with worldwide over the years. You guys always were and always will be the reason why I make music!
In this day and age, being a musician isn’t always easy — also an understatement — but the fans truly make it worthwhile for me. I hope to see each and every one of you again really soon. The fact that ANTHRAX is at the top of their game right now and totally ‘out for blood’ after all these years is a testament to this band’s longevity and conviction! I’m truly honored to have been a part of their brilliant legacy.
