Access All Areas: Stories from a Hard Rock Life by Scott Ian

Entertaining, crazy, and hilarious stories from Scott Ian of Anthrax

Scott Ian, famous for cofounding legendary thrash metal band Anthrax and only slightly less so for his iconic beard, has done and seen a lot in his decades of touring. Those of you who have read Scott's memoir I'm the Man may know the history of the band, but Access All Areas divulges all the zany, bizarre, funny, and captivating tales of what went on when the band wasn't busy crafting chart-topping albums.

In his more than thirty years immersed in the hard rock scene, Scott has witnessed haunting acts of depravity backstage, punched a legendary musician, been a bouncer at an exclusive night club, guest-starred with Anthrax on Married with Children, invaded a fellow rock star's home, played poker professionally, gone on a non-date with a certain material girl, appeared on The Walking Dead, and much more.

Access All Areas allows its readers to do just that. With humor, candor, hindsight, and writing chops that would make Stephen King jealous (nope, not even on Bizarro world), Scott Ian takes his fans along for the ride at all the parties, hot spots, and behind-the-scenes shenanigans they will never hear about from anyone else. And none of it would have happened without a bit of divine inspiration from KISS. (No, seriously. Read chapter two.) Best of all, Scott seemingly lacks the ability to be embarrassed, making Access All Areas howlingly funny, self-deprecating, and every bit as brash and brazen as one would expect from one of the original architects of speed metal.

In this follow-up to I’m the Man—which chronicled Ian’s life over the past 30 years as cofounder and guitarist of Anthrax—Ian presents another selection of off-the-wall stories from the road and beyond, including a stint as a zombie on the TV show The Walking Dead. Mostly, his humorous anecdotes capture the esprit de corps of his many touring musician friends, such as the late guitarist from Pantera, Dimebag Darrell, who had a habit of pulling off incredibly complex practical jokes. In another hilarious chapter, Ian writes of “looking at the perfectly tanned back and legs of an almost naked person” wearing Daisy Duke shorts, only to realize it was his hero, the legendary Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead. He also relays some disturbing and disgusting backstage stories, such as a gathering after a 1994 Nine Inch Nails concert that involved beer enemas and bowls of Fruit Loops. Elsewhere, Ian is self-reflective, such as when he describes his life as a teenage Kiss fanatic: “They were my religion, and I was a radical extremist.” With this outing, Ian has proven his writing chops. (Dec.)
