Anthrax Drummer Charlie Benante Creates Music-Inspired Vinylmation
A few months ago, Product Developers Holli McHugh and Donald Ferro teamed up with world renowned Anthrax drummer, Charlie Benante, to create an epic new vinyl…Vinylmation that is! These new collectible figures are the hottest craze to hit Disney Parks & Resorts.
Based on the character Mickey Mouse, these Vinylmation figures take on different looks, urban styles and characters and often depict different park attractions and icons.
Charlie knew at a young age there was art and music in his blood. A Disney fan from the start, it was Walt Disney’s Fantasia that led him to get hooked on creating art in all forms, as well as his love for Mickey Mouse and the flawless and seamless animation that only Disney could provide.
Known mainly for his drumming skills, Charlie has performed more than fifty tours spanning the globe and has been instrumental in the creation and development of the art and graphic designs seen on numerous band album covers and t-shirts.
Now marching to the beat of another drum, come nine music inspired 9” Vinylmation figures. Charlie has intricately wound gauze-like material reminiscent of sheet music around the Vinylmation from head to toe, creating an almost mummified appearance. Charlie has also created three additional Vinylmation figures he calls “Kisses.”
