Robert Caggiano (born November 7, 1976) is an Italian American guitarist and producer best known as the lead guitarist of the Heavy Metal band Anthrax. His first professional band was Boiler Room that formed in 1996. The band caught the attention of Roadrunner Records after an opening slot for Orgy in 1999. After several delays, the band eventually got Tommy Boy Records to release their debut album 'Can't Breathe'. Soon after the release, the band broke up in summer 2001.

He initially played with Anthrax from 2001 until 2005, exiting when their Among the Living lineup reunited, and later returning in 2007 following the end of that reunion. He appears on the album We've Come for You All as well as the Greater of Two Evils compilation (a live-in-the-studio recording of older material) and the live album Music of Mass Destruction. Rob was also part of "The Big 4" tour recently which featured Anthrax, Slayer, Megadeth and Metallica. The Bulgaria show was streamed and broadcasted to movie theaters all over the world and the entire "Big 4" show (Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer and Metallica) came out on DVD Nov. 2, 2010. Rob Caggiano is also known as a record producer/mixer under the alias of Scrap 60 Productions most notably for producing Cradle of Filth, Anthrax, and Jesse Malin along with many other prominent metal/hard rock bands. Rob is also the guitarist/songwriter for a band called The Damned Things along with Scott Ian (Anthrax), Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy), and Keith Buckley (Everytime I Die).
