Houses That Rock
Joel Feinberg knows exactly whom to credit for his love of music: his old headbanging babysitter from when he was a preteen in Queens, New York. That caretaker was none other than Scott Ian, the guitar player in the legendary heavy metal band Anthrax. Feinberg and Ian’s families lived in the same complex back in the mid-1980s.
“My mom would drop me off at Scott’s apartment,” Feinberg recalls. “The whole band would be there and would be like, ‘What is this kid doing here?’ By the time I was 10, I knew music was it for me. I wanted to be a rocker like them.”
