Anthrax’s Frank Bello Has Started Writing His Memoir
Scott Ian won't be the only member of Anthrax to release a memoir for much longer. Bassist Frank Bello has just revealed that he's just started work on a book detailing his life's story.
"We started and we're going to get back to it because we have busy schedules," Bello told RockSverige in a recent interview. The bassist went on to say that he'll be collaborating with author Joel McIver, who worked with his Altitudes & Attitude bandmate, Megadeth's David Ellefson, on the My Life With Deth memoir.
"He's done great stuff and he knows my history probably better than me," he said, praising the author. "He's great at what he does, so we'll probably work that out. He goes deep and he does it right. That's what I like about Joel. He has a lot of history that I probably have forgotten."
For nearly his entire career, Bello has remained focused on Anthrax and Anthrax only. Prior to forming the rock group Altitudes & Attitude with Ellefson, the only other group he played with was Helmet, which he joined for one year after quitting Anthrax in 2004. He returned not long after.
Altitudes and Attitude released their second album, Get It Out, earlier this year. They just completed a European tour, playing a couple KISS covers onstage. Watch Bello do a spot-on Paul Stanley take for their cover of "Detroit Rock City" in the video below.
