Get admitted to the clinic

I may not know what exactly a clinic is but I’m sure it has nothing to do with the picture above. Why post a picture like that then, you may ask? Well, because I can and I needed filler text for the intro. Worked quite well, didn’t it?

So, as you already know, because you’re reading Dose of Metal daily and all you do in your free time is talk to your friends about our news posts and articles, Megadeth’s David Ellefson and Anthrax’s Frank Bello, arguably the two nicest guys of the Big Four, played a couple of bass clinics together.

But that’s not news anymore, is it? No, but the nice Dave of Megadeth and Bello are joining forces for another clinic and this time Mike Portnoy and Frank Bello’s uncle will join them. Bello’s uncle? Well, Anthrax’s Charlie Benante, you dummy. Know your metal facts!

Want more info about this particular clinic? Make the jump to see the flyer, that has all the infos you need.


Anthrax are Lady Gaga fans?

Ok, so my title there is intentionally misleading, I must admit. Anthrax may be fans of Lady Gaga, or they may not be, but Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante certainly seems to be a fan. Ok, so if we were talking about the vocalist, it could be anyone let’s face it, but this is Charlie Benante, one of the main members and songwriters for the band.

According to Blabbermouth, Benante and his five-year-old daughter Mia attended Lady Gaga‘s concert last night (Monday, February 28) at the United Center in Charlie‘s hometown of Chicago Illinois. Benante claims Gaga gave Anthrax a big shout-out and treated his daughter like a queen, “proving again that she is a metalhead at heart!” – His words, not mine. A photo of the three, can be found after the jump.

This can only mean one thing… Lady Gaga could be Anthrax‘s next vocalist!!!11
