Phil Anselmo Admits To “Sucking” During NYC Performance Of “I’m Broken”

Sunday, 1st June 2014

Rock Scene Magazine recently posted footage of DOWN / ex-PANTERA frontman Phil Anselmo performing the PANTERA classic “I’m Broken” with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY On May 10th in New York City at Best Buy Theater. He recently posted the following message under the YouTube clip (originally found here):

“Dear lovers and haters! I adore you all, and I must admit one thing here and now: my voice was fried! Too many reasons to list here, but I did the Down set, waited an hour, drinking and smoking reasonably (hahaha!), and basically, I sucked. I admit it completely, you are correct!

Now, go back and listen to the last MM4 or 5 (?) a year ago. When I put my damn mind to it and commit, I can nail all these tunes, to a certain degree. Forget ‘Cemetery Gates’ type stuff, but damn near anything post CFH is mine.

Thanks for the comments, and I wish y’all awesomeness in your lives! Hail! Hail!”

DOWN recently released their new EP, Down IV – Part Two, via Down Records/ADA Music.
