Joey Belladonna / Ex-Anthrax



On September 5th, 2003, we got the following email:


It’s Joey Belladonna. What’s up? I’ll be glad to do the 20 questions anytime. Feel free to e-mail me back and/or stay in touch.


By Claire Meyer, Assistant

So we came up with 20 Questions and sent them out. Well, we never heard back from him. So on November 29th we emailed him and asked what was up, since after all, he did come to us. We didn’t email and ask him if he wanted to do them, he just emailed us out of the blue and requested them. He wrote back on November 30th with the following:


Though I appreciate the opportunity to answer your 20 Questions, I think you’re going to have to put me on your Pussy List.


How pathetic is that? The guy comes to us, asks for the questions, and then pusses out once he gets them. What the fuck did he think he was going to get, questions like, "What’s your favorite color?" No wonder the guy hasn’t accomplished anything since he got fired from Anthrax. Even if he’s given an opportunity, he’s too stupid to know what to do with it. Only people who take themselves way too seriously get stressed out about our questions. If you have a good sense of humor and are smart enough to roll with the punches, you’ll have no problem with answering our questions. Unfortunately, there are still quite a few people who can’t hang.

Here are the questions that Joey pussed out on.

1. What are you currently up to? This is your only chance to promote your shit.

2. Your "assistant" emailed us and said you were willing to do 20 Questions. Scott Ian doesn’t even have an assistant. How is it humanly possible that you have an assistant?

3. Have you heard Anthrax’s "We’ve Come For You All" and what are your thoughts on it?

4. What hard rock/heavy metal band should give it up and call it a day?

5. Rate the following vocalists on a scale of 1 to 10. 1 being somebody who sucks and 10 being a vocal master.
John Bush =
Neil Turbin =
Vince Neil =
Dave Mustaine =
Paul Stanley =
Sebastian Bach =
Bruce Dickinson =
James Hetfield =
Tom Araya =
Ozzy Osbourne =

6. When you were supposed to go out with Anthrax a few years ago and it didn’t happen, Scott told us it was because "he wanted more money than Metallica pays their tailor. If he would rather sit home than play to the Anthrax fans, that’s his decision. Sharp as a marble. In the immortal words of Tony Soprano, "he’s dead to me now." How much money did you want and why not just do it instead of sitting at home?

7. Yes or no, has Joey Belladonna ever:
Had Dan Spitz fix your watch =
Worn a Britney Spears shirt =
Bought Scott Ian a Hanukah gift =
Sold your headdress on Ebay =
Slept in teepee =
Cried for the Indians =
Been arrested =
Met Stevie Nicks =
Known somebody in the mob =
Worn extensions or a wig =

8. Charlie Benante recently said the following about why their new CD isn’t selling in the US, "I think that people (in America) are just stupid. They are not like the Europeans. The Europeans fucking love it, ya know?" Do you think Americans are stupid?

9. Would it disturb you much, if, upon your death your body was simply thrown into the woods and left to rot?

10. What do you remember about the following years:
1978 =
1983 =
1986 =
1989 =
1992 =
1995 =
1999 =
2002 =

11. Two Part Question: For $10,000: Would you set fire to an abandoned building with a convicted child molester sleeping in it? (The molester has served time, but 95% of child molesters are repeat offenders!)

For $10 bucks: Would you set fire to an abandoned building with John Bush sleeping in it?

12. What rock star deserves a smack in the mouth and why?

13. Where do you continue to find local, naive musicians to take advantage of?

14. Have you had the urge to audition for any other bands, like L.A. Guns, Ratt, Van Halen, or any other band that might need a singer?

15. The last of Joey Belladonna:
Last time you signed an autograph =
Last CD you purchased =
Last movie you saw =
Last book you read =
Last member of Anthrax you talked to =
Last foreign country you played in =
Last time you visited a casino =
Last time you got an Anthrax royalty check =
Last concert you saw =
Last lie you told =

16. Who’s the most overrated band today and why?

17. If you rejoined Anthrax, what are 3 things you would change?

18. Have you had to get a real job yet to pay your bills?

19. Why do you keep trying to pass yourself off as Native American when you’re Italian?

20. Time for Metal Sludge’s Word Association. We mention a name and you give us your thoughts.
