Down Are 'Far From Done' Says Pepper Keenan

(TeamRock Radio) Down's Pepper Keenan says that the band still has a future despite Phil Anselmo's 'white power' outburst earlier this year. Anselmo offered to quit his band after they were axed from this year's Fortarock bill in the Netherlands, due to his "white power" outburst at the annual Dimebash in January.

Keenan tells Metal Wani: "I don't know why there wouldn't be a future. You know, Down didn't do anything wrong."We were just guilty by association on that one. That was Phil's mistake."I've spoken to Phil and told him to get his sh*t together, and he is. He knows he made a mistake and was being stupid."

He continues: "I've known the guy most of my life. He's not what that whole thing framed him to be at all. But, yeah, there's definitely a future for Down.

"I wouldn't throw all the sh*t we've done, beautiful music we've done on one stupid moment that was caught on camera, and he apologized for. So we are far from done." Read more here.
