    WATCHMAKER
    Dan Spitz, who played lead guitar for the metal band Anthrax, left the group in the '90s to pursue an unexpected path: master watchmaking. Now, he's one of the top watchmakers in the world, but can still shred a guitar like it's 1983.

    Is he the little fidget? I laughed when they were on married with children. They kept calling Marcy Rhodes "Mr."

    He's been doing that for 20 years. He's also insane. He doesn't call them watches, he calls them Timepieces.

    Kelly wins a party with them and they destroy the house. I remember they eat Peggy's meatloaf or something and all start tripping out.

    I seem to remember Bud Bundy towering over him and Bud is like 5'4.

    Probably more money in watchmaking than in Anthrax.

    Yeah he found Jesus and became a watchmaker. Anthrax also released a killer album this year and he was nowhere to be found. His widdly woos aren't all that important to the sound of the band.

    I knew he became a watchmaker, but not that he's one of the "best in the world." Wonder how much truth there is to that?

    He still plays music. His new band played a dive bar here a couple years ago and nobody gave a shit.

    I was going to make fun of him, but damn that looks like he has quite a refined skill there. Haha, the Anthrax video clip was showing Scott playing guitar. Fidget Dan was just standing there in the background. I couldn't resist.

    if the watchmaking doesn't work out, he can make cookies in a tree somewhere.

    Yeah its been in rotation nonstop for me. Just something really catchy about it. Good slab of Metal and a worthy follow up to Worship Music.

    I wonder if his size helps with the watch work. I mean, not a lot of people can crawl into a watch. That has to be a major advantage.

    A lot of good music came out of the Jon Bush era but bringing back Belladonna was the best move ever.
