It’s going to be just your average ‘rock’ thing, there’s a lot that I’ve learned from this ‘rock’ business that are life lessons, you know?
Former Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo has rubbished claims still being thrown at him that he’s a racist, after making a Nazi-style salute and screaming “white power” at a concert earlier this year.Anselmo has already issued a public apology (below) and now speaking with ) he’s said this is the last apology he’ll give for the “joke”, which took place when he was “smashed drunk”.So I had, the basic skeletons for these songs sort of in place.You know, not married to one particular part or another.But really overcoming any of this pain and having it control your life is working it out man.
You’ve got to get up, you’ve got to stretch and you’ve got to get your fucking ass moving!Then I did a whole lot of fine tuning and I found a drummer that I wanted to jam with: the kid from Warbeast (Joe Gonzalez), an excellent drummer, a great, great, great drummer.He does play thrash metal in Warbeast but that doesn’t limit him from all spectrums of heavy metal. I get the best of both hands and feet, if you will, out of a drummer.That apology is there – and no, you won’t get another one ever again.”Apparently on the night of the incident, Anselmo had been heckled by crowd members who called him “racist”, so it’s an interesting tactic to respond to a jab like that with something which basically enflames their taunts. That’s ridiculous.”Earlier this month, former Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul told ) that while he hasn’t spoken to Anselmo since 2000, “He’s done a lot of things that tarnish the image of what Pantera was.”Watch Anselmo’s original video apology for the Nazi-style salute, below.Anselmo agrees that he shouldn’t have done it, but maintains, “My sense of humour is dark and my temper is and always has been volatile.“I reacted in an ignorant way. And every damn one of us is going to run into something along the way in life that doesn’t particularly suit us and we have to adapt. There’s a lot of people who don’t adapt and therefore they’ll fall into the tailspin of one thing or another.
