Anthrax's Frank Bello Discusses Drummer's Carpal Tunnel Condition


Anthrax (2010) Anthrax’s Frank Bello was interviewed by Jam Magazine - watch the full interview below.

During the interview, Bello discussed how drummer Charlie Benante was forced to sit out of some recent shows due to his issues with carpal tunnel syndrome:

Frank: "That carpal tunnel, you guys know this at this point, it's been well documented. He had surgery on his hand for the carpal tunnel, on his wrist. He can only play a certain amount of time per tour, so there's certain shows he can make. I've seen it. It goes dead. He loses the grip and that's not an excuse…it is what it is. So Jon Dette [SLAYER, TESTAMENT] comes in when he needs a break and he comes back in when he can. We have to play as we can. We don't want to cancel tours, that's for sure."
