About Rob Caggiano
The American guitarist and producer Rob Caggiano, born on the 7th of November 1976, is probably best known as the lead guitarist of the thrash pioneers Anthrax.
Before joining the rest of the gang in Anthrax in 2001, Rob played in a number of bands. Rob formed his first professional band Boiler Room in 1996 and later on, in 1999, he started playing in the band Orgy until they broke up in the summer of 2001, shortly after the release of their debut album.
Initially Rob played with Anthrax until 2005 as the band re-formed with the lineup from their 1987 album Among the Living. However, he rejoined the band later in 2007 at the end of the former reunion. Besides appearing on the albums We've Come for You All, Worship Music, Greater of Two Evils and the live album Music of Mass Destruction, Rob was a part of The Big 4 tour during 2010 and 2011, of the back of their hugely successful 2011 album Worship Music.

A live DVD of this tour was released on November 2nd, 2012.
