RAYMOND HERRERA: Without CHARLIE BENANTE And SCOTT IAN There Is No S.O.D.
Former FEAR FACTORY drummer Raymond Herrera has commented to BLABBERMOUTH.NET on the prospect of replacing ANTHRAX sticksman Charlie Benante in a revamped version of S.O.D.—an offer extended to him by S.O.D. frontman Billy Milano last month (as reported here a few days ago), but ultimately turned down due to Herrera's other commitments. "I'm a huge S.O.D. fan, and if [ANTHRAX/S.O.D. guitarist] Scott Ian was still doing it, I think I could have covered Charlie Benante's stuff, and I think I could have probably done… I'm not gonna say that I could have done a better job, but I think that I could have done a really good job," Raymond said. "Because, to me, Charlie is a great drummer—that's somebody I looked up to when I was a kid—and Scott Ian, to me, is a great guitar player. But I think, without both of those guys, it really isn't S.O.D."
