Frank Bello Of Anthrax Goes Solo & Jeff Plate Gets The Christmas Bells Ringer Download

42:05 Download November 16th, 2022

Frank Bello is up first. He talks about his solo LP – Then I’m Gone…why do a solo effort, why he didn’t play the drums, and more. He tells me what people think it sounds like, and how writing and recording these tracks was similar to putting out his book. We discussed his uncle, and Anthrax drummer, Charlie Benante’s role in the upcoming Pantera shows. He tells me about side project that Joey Belladonna is working on, the great voice that is John Bush…and lots more!

Jeff Plate rounds out the show as the Trans Siberian Orchestra come to a town near you. We talk about rehearsals, spending time on the road away from family during the holidays, what he does the other ten months of the year, all while be distracted by something that’s never happened to me in any interview I’ve ever done….but Jeff powers through.
