Watch Rex Brown of Pantera on Gibson TV’s “Icons,” Streaming Now

Gibson TV, the iconic, American guitar maker’s award-winning, worldwide online network–features original series about music and culture from the world’s best storytellers. Gibson TV has premiered the fifth episode of the show titled “Icons”–a longform interview series featuring some of the most iconic artists, producers, and music business pioneers in the world.

In the new episode of “Icons” out today, Gibson TV sits down with Rex Brown, the acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, solo artist, and member of Pantera. In this intimate look into his musical journey, Rex dives deep into his musical influences ranging from James Jamerson, John Entwistle, KISS and ZZ Top, while sharing personal stories surrounding his childhood, the enduring legacy of Pantera, and more.

Renowned worldwide, Rex and his Texas brethren forged a blueprint with Pantera that’s been studied by nearly every metal act that followed. Late lead guitar player Darrell “Dimebag” Abbott is rightly immortalized as a good-natured, guitar-shredding legend and the rhythmic punch forged by Rex and Pantera’s drummer, the late Vinnie Paul Abbott, has yet to be outdone. Along with singer Philip H. Anselmo, hailed as one of the greatest frontmen of all time, the self-described Cowboys from HellPantera sparked a movement that reinvigorated heavy metal, inspired countless bands, and is memorialized in tattooed skin around the world, representing the five groundbreaking multi-platinum albums unleashed between 1990 to 2000. 

Earlier this year, Pantera announced they would begin touring worldwide in December 2022, and into 2023 with the addition of Zakk Wylde (guitars) and Charlie Benante (drums) on the road. For all Pantera news, visit: https://pantera.com/tour.
