Rex Brown: "I had to go back and do something that made me happy"
With his first, “not metal” solo album, he hopes he can finally shake off the 'ex-Pantera bassist' tag
“People will always expect me to play Pantera songs, and this is not that,” says Rex Brown, talking to Classic Rock about his first-ever solo record. “You can’t just do the same old shit all the time.”
Smoke On This… definitely isn’t ‘the same old shit’. Instead, Brown – a former member of Down, Kill Devil Hill and, of course, Pantera – and co-writer Lance Harvill have put together an album heavy on 70s rock and packed with the grit of classic grunge.
