John Bush Reunites With Anthrax (Sort of Not Really)!!!
I’d give my Aunt Sadie COVID-19 if it meant getting John Bush back into Anthrax. I know that we here at MetalSucks may be in the minority camp on this one, but Vince and I would both much rather have John Bush instead of Joey Belladonna. Not every Bushthrax album was a winner, but he was on at least two of the band’s very best albums (The Sound of White Noise and We’ve Come for You All), and he made classic Anthrax tracks sound that much meatier. Also, he doesn’t have the hairstyle and spray tan of my aforementioned Aunt Sadie.
I mention it because for his latest all-star quarantine video, Anthrax’s Charlie Benante has released a stripped-down version of the White Noise track, “Packaged Rebellion,” complete with vocals by Mr. Bush. The semi-reunion is intended to celebrate this week’s 27th anniversary of White Noise, an album I first listened to on cassette while on a bus to sleepaway camp for the summer. Holy Aunt Sadie, I’m old.
