“Corey Taylor’s 26th birthday. Anthrax/Slipknot at the Avalon in Boston 12-8-99. It was my first time seeing them and they broke my mind. It was the beginning of a beeeyooteeful friendship! Thanks dudes! Little known trivia – Anthrax played that show as a 4 piece. I played the solo on Only and a few others. The rest we rearranged without solos.”
