Charles Lee Benante is an American musician who is best known as the drummer for thrash metal band Anthrax, as well as crossover thrash band Stormtroopers of Death.
The music world was stunned last Friday when news broke of Rush drummer Neil Peart’s death from brain cancer. So celebrate the life, legacy and music of one of the greatest, most-influential drummers in rock and roll history with Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante and Winery Dogs (and former Dream Theater) drummer Mike Portnoy, who share their personal stories and recollections on Neil, Rush’s albums and stage shows. Mike was actually friends with Neil and speaks to their relationship, and Charlie remembers the first time he met Neil and why that didn’t go exactly as planned. They also share favorite songs, favorite drum solos, favorite live performances, and favorite Neil memories.
It’s circa 1994, and John, Paul, George and Ringo are alive and well, and finally reuniting! What would a Beatles Reunion tour have looked like then? How would they have announcement it? What songs would they have include in the live set? And would they have invited onstage with them? Well, the TIJ Fab 3 have that all figured out! Charlie Benante from Anthrax, Mike Portnoy of Sons of Apollo, Winery Dogs, and Dream Theater fame join Chris to run down their 40-song fantasy set lists, stage setup, show production, and backing band members. It’s the ultimate fantasy Beatles Reunion Concert! Tweet in your song requests to @TalkIsJericho!
