Rob Caggiano Leaves Anthrax

In a post on Anthrax's facebook page, the announcement that Rob Caggiano's departure from the band is official. There were no reasons given by the band, but should prove interesting in the coming weeks as the band preps for the Metal Alliance Tour. Read the Statement below:
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. 
With the Metal Alliance Tour on the horizon, we have been considering several lead guitarist options, and will be making an announcement on that shortly. 
ANTHRAX - Charlie Benante, Scott Ian, Frank Bello, Joey Belladonna
I am sure there is a super group forming with Paul Di'anno, or Ripper Owens you can check out for other gigs. I hear Geoff Tate is hiring. Either way I am sure he will land on his feet, as one of the men who helped revitalize the fading legend of Anthrax.
