Pantera Wanted To Destroy Glam Rock Club Scene

10/28/2013
.
(Classic Rock) Former Pantera and Downmain man Philip Anselmo says he set out with the intention of tearing down the popular glam rock culture in the club scene when Pantera began.

Speaking to Radio.com he recalled setting out on the road with band in their early days when the landscape of the rock world was very different. He says: "We are guys from the underground despite my success with Pantera, but my heart has always lay with the underground of heavy metal and extreme music. That's where I shout well.

"My whole mission was to destroy the whole club scene in Texas, the thought and the entire protocol of the entire club scene. We started incorporating heavier music and more and more people starting coming along and I wasn't just the new guy any more. People were buying into it and the clubs were packed and I started saying 'I don't like glam music and I don't like popular rock'n'roll.'

"Eventually when we were packing out these clubs I said I am never going to wear a pair of spandex again in my life. We are packing the clubs. What are they going to do? Turn us down? All they want is a packed house." more on this story
