Scott Ian Says He Once Invited Faith No More’s Mike Patton To Join Anthrax

During a recent interview with, Scott Ian revealed that he actually invited Faith No More’s Mike Patton to join Anthrax “a million years ago . . . just before Joey [Belladonna] came back.” The offer was ultimately denied, but the duo did get to collaborate years later on the current incarnation of Mr. Bungle. Ian said the following:

“I had said, ‘Hey, do you want to sing on the next Anthrax record?’ We were drunk in a bar in Melbourne, Australia on a festival together. He was with Faith No More. He was like, ‘Oh, man. You don’t want me in your band. I’m a pain in the ass.’ I was like, ‘No, no, no. I think we could deal with it.’ He goes, ‘Yeah, but I got seventy-two projects and I could never commit.’ I’m like, ‘I know, really. I’m asking but I’m not really asking.’ He’s like, ‘Don’t worry, we’ll do something together someday.’ So then when he hit me up, he goes, ‘Remember in Melbourne when I said we would work together?’ I’m like, ‘Uh huh.’ He goes, ‘Guess what?'”
