ANTHRAX Guitarist Checks In From 'Supergroup' Set: 'I Am Having So Much Fun'

ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian has checked in from the Las Vegas set of the new VH1 reality TV show, tentatively titled "Supergroup", which features Ian alongside Ted Nugent (guitar), Evan Seinfeld (BIOHAZARD; bass), Sebastian Bach (ex-SKID ROW; vocals) and Jason Bonham (BONHAM, UFO, FOREIGNER; drums). Filming for the program commenced on February 22, with the premise being to lock several musicians in a house for 10 days and get them to write and record some new original music. Originally the network wanted the group to record an album, but at this time it is understood they will settle for one song and hope for more. In addition to the five musicians, star manager Doc McGhee (KISS) is in charge and is also living in the house for the duration of filming/recording.

Commented Ian: "I just got back from a strip bar with Evan. Shocking. Strip bars in Vegas? I am not locked in the house.

"This isn't 'Big Brother' or 'Surreal Life' or 'The Real World'. We can come and go as we please and will get as much out of this as we put in. Like college, only with Ted Nugent as your professor ripping on guitar.

"This is the ultimate summer camp.

"Ted taught me to shoot a bow today. I shot a perfect kill on a fake deer. I may be the first Jew to shoot an arrow.

"Paul Crook [former ANTHRAX/SEBASTIAN BACH guitarist] came over today and we jammed. He rips!!!

'The show we are doing is March 5 at the Empire Ballroom. I'm not sure how tix are being handled. They expect a sellout. I will post info tomorrow.

"I jammed 'Cat Scratch' with Ted today. Just him and I. Another Make A Wish moment.

"I am having so much fun."

"Supergroup" is tentatively scheduled to premiere on May 18.
