Anthrax frontman Joey Belladonna presses play on his ‘Jukebox’ 4-day residency at Wally’s

“I can do an odd version of a song and I get to do a bunch of stuff. I get to do songs that maybe someone has never heard before or has never heard me sing in that style before, so there’s a lot to it other than me playing people’s favorite songs. There’s me being able to sing whatever the hell I want and when I feel like doing it I can turn things down while doing two or three songs by Elton John in a heartbeat and then go back into doing some Dio or something. I can flip things around and do a wide variety.” – Joey Belladonna on his Jukebox project READ MORE

One of the first questions I was asked during my job interview was ‘You’re going to be the first person that walks these halls as a black male administrator.
