S.O.D.'s Dan Lilker Angry Over VH1's Behind The Music with Anthrax

Anthrax's Former Bassist Upset

As reported by Blabbermouth.net:

Former Anthrax and current S.O.D. bassist Danny Lilker has asked us to publish the following statement regarding the way his contributions to Anthrax's early years were portrayed on the VH1 Behind The Music special on the group, which premiered last weekend:

“I would just like it to be known that I was extremely unhappy with a particular section of Anthrax's Behind The Music episode broadcast March 10th. Anyone watching the show would incorrectly assume that I had already departed the band before Anthrax recorded the demos that eventually got the band signed to Megaforce Records. One would also be led to believe that I did not participate in the recording of the debut album Fistful Of Metal.

“Now, most older metalheads would know already that this was not the case, but I was still pissed at this gross inaccuracy, hence this statement. At this point, I still am not sure if this was sloppy research on VH1's part, or perhaps band members giving erroneous information to 'simplify' the story. Maybe a little of both. Regardless, I felt moved enough to speak out.

“Anyone who types 'Anthrax Fistful Of Metal' into [the] Google [search engine] will find out within about 10 seconds what the real deal was.

“Being part of Anthrax during that time frame was a very exciting time in my life, thrash was starting to break and we were on the cusp of the whole movement, along with Metallica, Slayer, Venom, etc., etc., so it was somewhat of a drag to see I'd somehow been written out of that part of the story.”

In related news, Anthrax are rumored to have signed a four-album US deal with Sanctuary Records last week. The group will remain on Nuclear Blast Records for the European territory.
