Former Pantera/current Down frontman Phil Anselmo’s autobiography will be released January 13, 2015.
BloodyDisgusting.com writer Corey Mitchell is co-authoring the book, which is described as “a no-holds-barred look inside of Philip’s brain, his history with PANTERA, the loss of his best friend, Dimebag Darrell, and an unflinching examination into the downward spiral of pain and drug addiction that nearly cost him his life.”
Speaking to Artisan News at last year’s Revolver Golden Gods awards in Los Angeles see video below), Anselmo stated about his upcoming autobiography: “First and foremost, it’s not just a PANTERA book. Now, PANTERA is a gigantic part of my life — let’s not ever, ever mix these signals — but it’s more a book about myself and how it took to get from all of the peaks, valleys and the in-betweens; that really, really sums things up. There is my persective, of course, but I think the hardest person I’m gonna be on is myself. Because we all get the cards that we’re dealt, and it’s up to us to deal with that how we deal with it.”
