Rob Caggiano, lead guitar player of thrash veterans Anthrax for several years, has announced he will be stepping down from his position in the band.
Leaving to focus more on his production and studio work, the band have commented, ‘“Rob has been an integral part of Anthrax for so many years, as our lead guitarist, in a production capacity, but most of all, as our close friend. His contributions to the band have been enormous. While we are sad that he is leaving, we wish him nothing but great success going forward, and hope to share the stage with him again sometime down the road’.
A replacement has yet to be revealed, yet the band have made it clear that several options have been considered and an announcement is to come shortly.
