Ex-Pantera Bassist Rex Brown To Write Book

The latest entrant into the realm of Pantera memoirs is former bassist Rex (Rockhead) Brown, who will team up with De Capo Press to put out "Official Truth, 101 Proof: The Inside Story of Pantera" about his life in the band. This comes a year after Phil Anselmo announced he would be writing a book as well. Former Grim Reaper guitarist and Guitar World writer Nick Bowcott is also writing a book about the life of Dimebag, and so far it's the only one to receive the blessings of Vinnie Paul Abbott and the rest of Darrell's family.

So much drama in the Pantera camp nowadays. Wish Vin and Phil would bury the hatchet,stop talking smack in the press about each other. They made some damn good music together,that gets lost in all the drama.

Should be interesting as Rex was the only member of the band who stayed out of the he-said she-said nonsense that brought about the end of the mighty Pantera...

I'll pass, on ALL of these books.

Pantera's long gone, we lost Dime nearly 7years ago.

I don't need nor want to know every detail, cos it doesn't change a thing now.

I'll just enjoy my Pantera albums and that's that.

If all Dimebag's fans got together and each wrote a page for a book about his life, it would be the BEST most honest book EVER. I have a "When I Met Pantera" story and each time I tell it, another person says "I met them, too" and they share their personal story.
Pantera was the type of band that actually talked, hung out with, partied with, their fans. Very down to Earth band. I"m thankful for all the memories I have when they were all together. \m/

number 6... has the best idea ever. props to you.
i would love to contribute to this book, if i had met Dime. i have been to his grave site and met everyone else in the Pantera camp. but still, it's not the same if you never met Dime.

This willbe the only book worth reading about Pantera and trust me, they do warrant a book. Rex is the only member who observed most of what went on, rather than being knee-deep in it. This will be awesome for sure - can't wait

10. I agree with post 6 ... writes:

that would be a book to actually read. I did get to meet them in Dayton, Ohio ... was backstage interviewing Sacred Reich's guitarist Wiley. Dimebag burst in excited like a schoolkid - "I have to show you this" - grabbed Wiley's guitar, fired off a lead and then apologized for interrupting the interview. It was incredible. He invited us into the eat and greet to meet everyone after that. With the exception of Phil, the guys were very cool. The kind of story that made me really admire Dime. He is truly missed.
