Scott 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!”
