Scott Ian - Swearing Words in Glasgow

.
This spoken word film finds Ian reflecting on his role as the guitarist for fabled thrash band Anthrax as well as going off on a couple of tangents, one of which is uncharacteristically poignant. The film can be broken down into three main segments, the first of which is comprised of shorter tales like how Ian at the tender age of 21 ran into Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead, one of his heroes, at a pub in London. Then there's a bit of gross-out humor as Ian relates how he pooped his pants once during a wild move on stage and didn't realize it until much later in the day. These typical rock lifestyle stories set up the main part of the film, which is about Ian's relationship with his longtime friend, Dimebag Darrell. Ian's fondness for the late guitarist is palpable as he talks about Anthrax being on the road with Pantera and how Dime encouraged him to become an accomplished drinker of hard alcohol, which started with Dime bringing shots to Ian and telling him it was time to "drink it or wear it." The meat of the Dime time though is a funny and lengthy story that involves Dime, Ian and Sebastian Bach, the details of which can't be revealed here so as not to spoil the twist ending. Ian intros the segment about Dimebag by saying that people are always asking him what Dime was really like and by the time he finishes telling the story he's done a really good job of conveying the answer to that question. The third part of the film, about an hour in length, is an "ask me anything" Q&A session where Ian fields questions from the audience. Chances are that if you're easily offended you're not into Scott Ian anyway but the film's title is not kidding; rarely a minute goes by without the dropping of numerous F-bombs.

This title will be released on November 11th.
