Review -Scott Ian -Speaking Words 2014 Live at the Cleveland Agora

Cleveland OH - Scott Ian, I really didn’t know what to expect . The guy is a legend in modern times. The founder of one of the big four ,Anthrax ,the band is a staple in the metal community and the history books . The venue was chosen was the World Famous Agora Theatre and Ballroom and it has hosted many a legend on its stages . But to be able to hold an audience’s attention just by talking can be a daunting task for even the most seasoned performer . The audience sat in their chairs awaiting this metal master to enthrall us with wit and charm and you know what he did . The amps were not turned up to 11 but the mojo was. Scott spoke as if we are all his friends .He regaled us with tales of meeting his hero and friend Lemmy Kilmeister of Motorhead along with great imitations of Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons and sad but true recollection of pranks caused by Dimebag Darrell Abbot of Pantera fame. He spoke about his view of life and love and having fun with who you are . He even hinted about the new autobiography coming out in a few months .The tour is currently running in North America before heading over to Europe so I suggest you catch it if it come to your town . If you are in the Midwest don’t forget to check the Agoras website for their complete schedule and Scotts official website to see if he s coming to a city near you !
