    You know, Frank and Dan I can see, but I actually like John better than Joey.

    I saw some interview with Ian abou that. He was dismissive of the "true Athrax" fans, because John as been with them much, much longer than Joey was, and yet, isn't "true" Anthrax. Plus "Joey had all the great albums" is pretty subjective.

    I think "We've Come For You All" is one of the best Anthrax albums to date.

    Agreed, that is a great album. I also like John better than Joey.

    I hate to say it but I also think John is the better fit.

    Its still cool to see all of them back together. :cool:

    John is good but I still like "classic" Anthrax better. Those records from that lineup are still some of my faves. Saw them on the "Among The Living" tour and they killed. Frankie is the man. Fingerstyle even at high speed!

    HUGE John Fan here!!!!! WCFYA and The Greater of 2 Evils are AWESOME. I LOVE every Bush Era Anthrax release.

    I guess the FistFul of Metal Lineup with Neil Turbin on Vocals and Dan Liker on Bass dosen't count. :)

    Neil and Dan were awesome. I saw them when Neil and Dan were in the Band and it ruled, never saw the recent line-up. I did see Armored Saint with John and he ruled with them.

    So, if we got Neil, Dan, and John in a band, it'd theoretically rule Anthrax, yes?

    I'd pay to see it. I can't wait till Nuclear Assault gets rolling again.
