Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian has given his fiancee a big boost as she prepares for a major London showcase gig - he's agreed to take part in a meet-and-greet after the show. The rocker is planning to marry Meat Loaf's daughter Pearl Aday and he's doing what he can to help her launch her own career.

So, when Aday's band Pearl performs at the Barfly in Camden on 21 March (08), he's hoping to encourage Anthrax fans to turn up by agreeing to sign autographs and pose for photos after the gig.

Aday isn't the only celebrity in Pearl - the band also features one-time Go-Gos bass player Dominique Davalos.

Support on the night will be provided by the excellent MURDER IN MONOCHROME
