Six Degrees of Dio: Anthrax


Anthrax is one of the seminal thrash bands of all time. There’s a reason they’re part of the big 4, even though to me it’s really the big 2 but that’s neither here nor there.


Dimebag Darrell Abbott played on several Anthrax albums. He also played on the Rob Halford song “Light Comes Out of Black”. Rob Halford has filled in as the lead singer of Black Sabbath on occasion with Tony Iommi. And by now you should know that Tony was in Sabbath/Heaven and Hell with Dio.

Now while I’m sure most people are fans of the classic Anthrax with Joey Belladonna on vocals I’m more of a fan of the John Bush led Anthrax. I felt they were a more serious band with John Bush.

Here’s the John Bush fronted Anthrax with Anyplace But Here off of the album We’ve Come For You All.
