ANTHRAX's "Among the Living" lineup — Scott Ian (guitar), Joey Belladonna (vocals), Charlie Benante (drums), Dan Spitz (guitar) and Frank Bello (bass) — is said to be planning a series of North American dates this summer, including an appearance at the 10th anniversary edition of Ozzfest. Sharon Osbourne is believed to have promised ANTHRAX a slot at this year's Ozzfest but only on the condition that they perform with the classic lineup that was responsible for some of the band's most successful albums.
