Former Pantera frontman misbehaves…. BADLY
Former frontman Phil Anselmo closed of a gig in Hollywood with a raised hand shouting out the words “White power”. The backlash about what he had done was massive. After realizing what a fool of himself he made, he came up with an excuse that they were drinking white wine back stage. However, he was rebuffed by Machine Head frontman Rob Flynn who was performing there as well and said, “Phil, you drank nothing but German Beck’s beer”.
In a lengthy video Flynn didn’t hold back anything in condemning what Anselmo said, and also people in the metal community that defended it. Flynn really knows his history when it comes to racism. He referenced to a lease on his second house which in the 1950’s still had a condition that there will be no black people living in his neighborhood. In closing he told he will never play another Pantera track again.
Watch the video. NSFW.
After the backlash Anselmo uploaded a video with another apology.
