In an new interview conducted by "Thunder Underground" podcast, Steve "Lips" Kudlow, Anvil frontman discussed about metal drummers who create music and play other instruments.
He talked about Charlie Benante and Joey Belladonna from Aanthrax.
Lips: "Talking about Anthrax, the guy that's the real powerhouse musician is the singer, Joey [Belladonna]. Joey is the man. He can play drums and he can sing like a bird. That's the talent. We did a show with [Joey's solo band Belladonna] quite a number of years ago, and Joey… The [drummer] didn't show up, and they had Jack Frost on guitar, and Joey did all the singing from the drums. It was fucking unbelievable; he was playing as good as Charlie — maybe better. I almost wonder why [the Anthrax] guys got Charlie. You know, you don't even need the guy. Your singer can play drums just as well, and [it's] one less guy to pay." (via Blabbermouth)
