“I’m really psyched for my third NAMM show as part of the Samson family,” says Frank Bello, bassist for iconic trash metal band Anthrax. “All of us in Anthrax are looking forward to the Saturday afternoon signing. This is our first time appearing together at NAMM. It’s going to be an amazing weekend for everyone involved.”
