Interview: Former Pantera and Down Bassist Rex Brown Talks Gear, Influences and Kill Devil Hill

Rex Brown knows a thing or two about bass. The man has been pounding out well-known, monstrous basslines for close to 30 years, ever since Pantera's first record, Metal Magic, in 1983. Brown, who was inspired to play bass by Paul McCartney, John Paul Jones and Geezer Butler, teamed up with like-minded musicians Vinnie Paul, Terry Glaze and Dimebag Darrell in 1982. Phil Anselmo joined the band in 1987, forming what would be considered Pantera's classic lineup.
