SECURITY AT THE CLUB NOKIA IN LOS ANGELES WANTS JOHN BUSH BACK IN ANTHRAX, TOO
Anthrax were playing at the Club Nokia in Los Angeles this past weekend when a fan jumped up on-stage, and a security guard who is also a major, major John Bush supporter decided to use said fan-on-stage as an excuse to tackle Joey Belladonna. Check out the video below; the incident in question happens at roughly the 1:36 mark.
I’m kidding about the dude being a John Bush fan, of course; it seems like he was just overzealous and/or not very bright. I don’t know why that fan would have to have been tackled with such force anyway; he wasn’t really doing anything too terrible, and given that he actually tries to get away from Belladonna, it seems pretty clear that he had no intention of hurting the band.
ANYWAY, it seems like everything turned out okay in the end. As you can see, Frankie Bello had to be pulled away by security after he lept to his vocalist’s aid, but Belladonna apparently wasn’t hurt and was able to finish the set, and Scott Ian (rightfully) made some sarcastic remarks at security’s expense, and life went on. But I have to imagine that security guard is now looking for work, which is a bummer. Although I hear that Dan Nelson sent him a lovely gift basket, so there’s that.
