As a member of Anthrax since the band's formation in 1981, Scott Ian has established himself as one of the most renowned rhythm guitarists in thrash. Perhaps, then, it's no surprise that his 10-year-old son, Revel Young Ian, has already developed a taste for heavy metal.

Already a talented multi-instrumentalist, the young rocker has honed some formidable skills on both drums and guitar, and even played the latter on stage with Foo Fighters in 2019 when he was just eight years old.
