Speculation is rampant that all is not well in the Nonthrax camp, thanks to a series of cryptic messages posted by still-wet singer Dan Nelson and a trio of concert cancellations. That last sentence was my audition for CNN's Metal desk. No but seriously, at this stage, how far are we from Fuck Anthrax status? And what is the evidence that Scott Ian is an asshole, as is asserted all over the interslice. The shows were reportedly cancelled due to Nelson's illness (not to be confused with Nelson Disease), but Blabbermouth unearths some um sentence fragments the early morning before their Europe tour was set to open:
July 16, 3:47 am: Funny, I don't feel so lucky...Wonder what everyone is talking about??"July 16, 4:28 am: "is done."July 17, 7:54 pm: "loves his family and friends more than ANYTHING."
Usually in this space, HooM! has some outlandish deductions and name-calling but I'm pretending they broke up after Persistence of Time and, let's face facts, this cupcake is not going eat itself. I knew you'd understand.
