Anthrax and Metallica
December 14, 2011 4:44 PM Subscribe
In 1986 in Brooklyn, you could speak of Anthrax and Metallica as peers. With all respect to Anthrax who have been influential, history has shown Metallica to be the bigger band. I remember an article saying that of all the influential progressive bands in the 70's, like Yes, ELP, and Genesis, lessor know Gentle Giant was just as popular. Are there other examples of bands that had periods of time then they were peers, only to be surpassed later in time. Also, please add if this was true for a specific place.
