Rex Brown Officially Out of Down

.
(Rock News Desk) Rex Brown has finally confirmed he's left Down permanently. Rumours had been circulating for weeks after the bassist described himself as being "in the doghouse" as far as bandmate and former Pantera colleague Phil Anselmo was concerned.

He hadn't appeared on the band's most recent tour and guitarist Pepper Keenan admitted he wasn't sure how to describe Brown's current status. Last week drummer Jimmy Bower said the split was permanent and now Brown himself has confirmed Down will continue with Crowbar's Patrick Bruders in his place, while he concentrates on new band Kill Devil Hill.

"I'm officially out of the band. Things came to a head and they're better off doing what they're doing with Patrick." Brown tells 8countnews. "I kind of lost my passion after a while. There were some other problems that we had to address and it just turned out better that we parted ways." more on this story
