Anthrax aim to keep Jon Donais
Anthrax are planning to take on guitarist Jon Donais as the permanent replacement for Rob Caggiano, says Scott Ian.
Speaking on TeamRock Radio’s The Metal Hammer Show, Ian says: “Jon’s been with us since February and I think I can safely say he’s passed the audition. I know we haven’t said anything official yet, but in my mind he’s the guy.”
And he emphasises: “As far as I’m concerned Jon is the guitar player in Anthrax.”
The band have spent some of this year without drummer Charlie Benante, who’d missed a number of shows for unexplained “personal reasons.” He recently revealed he’d undergone surgery to address carpal tunnel syndrome in his right hand, and that he’ll be back behind his kit in September.
