Anthrax Founder Scott Ian to Pen Memoir For Perseus

scottianScott Ian, founding member of the thrash band Anthrax, has signed a book deal with Da Capo Press, a Perseus Books Group imprint. Perseus will publish Ian’s memoir I’m the Man next year.

“Why a book? Because I think my story can connect with anyone and, if I was able to make the life I wanted for myself happen, then anyone can,” said Ian in a statement. “I’m really excited to be writing a book because the idea of getting forty-something years of stuff out of my brain and onto the page seems very therapeutic. Plus if I didn’t do it now, I’d start forgetting and wouldn’t be able to share all these killer stories with you, my friends!”

Ben Schafer, executive editor at Da Capo acquired the world rights to the book from Jim Fitzgerald of the James Fitzgerald Agency.
