Metal legend Scott Ian's someone who's been there from the very beginning.

And he's seen a lot of things in his time.

From being in pioneering metal band Anthrax, to playing a character in the Walking Dead, to marrying into Meatloaf's family, he's lived a life many can only dream of.

And he's coming Down Under to speak all about it.

Ahead of his Aussie speaking tour, the legendary guitarist spoke to Triple M's Iron Hayden about getting his voice ready for the tour, how it differs from a normal gig, and what it was like as a metal band in the 80s.

"There were no other bands, there was no scene. There was zero metal scene."

You can check out the clip of the chat below:
