Meat Loaf: “Scott Ian From Anthrax Looks Like A Serial Killer!”
We had the one and only Meat Loaf invade the Metal Hammer office two weeks ago, and the man himself had some brilliant words to say about his son-in-law, Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian!
Remember when Meat Loaf invaded the Metal Hammer office? Sure you do, because this happened:
We also asked Meat about his son-in-law, who is none other than Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian, and how he ended up getting the iconic Bat Out Of Hell singer hooked up with Public Enemy rapper Chuck D. Yes, it’s as maddening as it sounds.
“Well, in the walls of your [Metal Hammer] office, there’s a picture of a man who’s my son in law,” laughs Meat. “And it’s funny for me to say that, because he looks like a serial killer – no, a serial killer gone mad, actually! Ha ha ha! Scott’s a sweetheart, and him and Pearl [Meat’s daughter] have just had a baby!
“I wanted a rapper [for my new album],” he continues. “Scott’s one of Chuck D’s best friends, so I go, ‘Scott, I need Chuck D’, and he goes, ‘Okay Meat, give me two seconds…’ So he crosses emails with me and Chuck, and I send Chuck the track ‘God’s Gonna Cut You Down’. You ever had one of those moments where the hair stands up on the back of your arms? This guy got in my head, man – he’s a telepath!”
Fair enough. Hell In A Handbasket is out this week! You best get yourself a copy, really…
Oh, and if you fancy, check out what Meat had to say about Slipknot. It’s pretty epic viewing…
