Frank Joseph Bello is an Italian-American musician who plays bass guitar for the thrash metal band Anthrax.
Bello was originally a roadie and guitar technician for Anthrax, but later he replaced Dan Lilker soon after the release of Fistful of Metal. Bello left Anthrax in early 2004 to join Helmet - another New York City-based metal band. His stint in the band was brief, as Bello reunited with Anthrax the following year, and has remained in the band since.

"I was bullied when I was young, living in upstate in New York. I was literally beat up every day I went to school. I was beat up by this tall dude. He was a bigger dude, he was muscular. He would beat me up and keep me under the car every day I went to school. I think [bullying] is for the weak. People that are insecure, people that don't have good home lives and are taking it out on other people. I think it's wrong. I think it's wrong and it's gotta stop."
“The people that are bullying you — girls, guys, whoever it may be — they’re feeling so badly about themselves, they have to take it on somebody else; that’s how they get it out. You have to understand that and be smarter and be somebody above them. And don’t be afraid to tell. I was close to my principal in school. When I was getting bullied, I talked to him, and he acted as a confidant. And he told me what to do; it was very secretive. You can do it all in secret. Don’t feel like there is no way out; there is a way out. And it’s not suicide. It’s absolutely not suicide. There’s a long life ahead of you.”
