On Thursday Pantera's Rex Brown Not Down About Changing Bands was a top story. Here is the recap: Revolver caught up with former Pantera bassist Rex Brown to learn about his recent departure from Down to devote his time to his new band Kill Devil Hill and to them know about his autobiography plans.
Here are two excerpts from the interview: You split with Down earlier this year. What caused you to leave? Phil has a lot side projects that he does, so he spends a lot of time focusing on them. And after a while, I decided I needed something new. There's no animosity there, but I need to jam, I need to keep moving down the road. I mean, Phil and I go back 23 years, so it's all good. We talked recently. That's fine. I just needed a change. I'm working on the book right now, so you're going to have to wait to hear about it.
We've heard about the bookis there a focus to it? Pantera? Down? Or just Rex over the years? I try to be really honest and genuine about how my life's been these past years. I have a co-writer, and I've got over 60 hours of tape, and I want to talk about my experiences during this time. With Pantera
when all of that went down, I didn't really talk about anything in the press. I didn't want to take any part in the he-said-she-said bullsh*t. So this is my perspective on the whole bit. It's about the good times, really, not the bad stuff, because that's out there in the press, and it's something I hate. But hey, it makes good copy. - Check out the full interview here, it's a good one!
