Interview By Ali Blackdiamond
American bass player Rex Brown is well known as the longstanding bass guitarist for PANTERA, recording the legendary albums such as “Cowboys From Hell” and “Far Beyond Driven”, along with the much missed guitarist Dimebag Darrell.
In more recent years, Rex worked again with vocalist Phil Anselmo as part of DOWN. Rex is currently part of L.A. supergroup KILL DEVIL HILL, along with Dewey Bragg, Mark Zavon and new drummer Johnny Kelly (replacing Vinny Appice). The band released their self-titled debut album two years ago.
Earlier in the day on the River Thames in London, Rex played a short set on the HMS Hammer boat. Later in the evening of Monday 16th June, Rex presented the ‘Dimebag Darrell Shredder‘ award to PERIPHERY‘s Misha Mansoor, at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods 2014. For the interview with Misha, check this location.
Rex expressed: “It’s kinda cool that I got to do it, kind of a touching thing, very very fucking cool to honour my fallen brother.”
