Scott grew up in a Jewish family with his younger brother Jason, and step-brother Sean. His love for music appeared when he was 12 years old, when he first listened to the Ramones. As he grew older, he became more interested in rock music, and was at a Kiss concert in 1977. He attended the Bayside High School, where he met and befriended Dan Lilker and Neil Turbin, with whom he would later start the band Anthrax.
Following his matriculation, Scott and the rest began playing together, and in 1984 released their debut album entitled “Fistful Of Metal”. However, the album wasn`t quite well welcomed by critics, but alongside Metallica, Megadeath and Slayer they helped create “The Big Four”, which would dominate the American trash metal scene during the 1980s and early 1990s. The bands second album, “Spreading The Disease” was released in 1985, and reached No.113 on the US Billboard 200 chart, but their next release “Among the Living” (1987) lifted the band to stardom, as the album achieved gold status. This success increased Scott`s net worth by a large margin.
The bands next three albums “State of Euphoria” (1988), “Persistence of Time” (1989), and “Sound of White Noise” (1993), all achieved gold status, which only increased Scott`s net worth further.
From then, the band`s popularity began to decline; although they released five more studio albums, only “Worship Music” (2011), and “For All Kings” (2016), reached into the top 20 on the US Billboard 200 chart.
Scott has also founded the band Stormtroopers of Death, which consisted of Dan Liker, Charlie Benante and Billy Milano. The band released three studio albums, “Speak English or Die” (1985), “Bigger than the Devil” (1999), and “Rise Of The Infidels” (2007), before its disbandment, but which also increased his net worth.
Scott`s net worth has also increased from his work on television; starting in the late 1990s, Scott has been a regular on VH1 and hosts several shows, including “Rock Show” (1999-2002), “100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs”, “40 Greatest Metal Songs”, and many others.
Regarding his personal life, his wife, Pearl Aday, with whom he has one child, is a daughter of the singer Michael Lee Aday, best known under his stage name Meat Loaf. During the 1980s Ian was married to Majorie Ginsberg, who was his high school sweetheart, however, the couple divorced. Scott is a versatile personality; he is a fan of several sci-fi shows, including Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who, and many others. He is a poker player, and in the World Series of Poker Main Event held in 2009, he won $21,365, which also benefited his net worth. Scott is also an avid baseball fan, routing for the New York Yankees, and he also loves snowboarding.
