Official Truth, 101 Proof: The Inside Story of Pantera Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Few heavy metal acts survived the turmoil of the early 1990s music scene. Pantera was different. Instead of humoring the market, the band instead demanded that the audience come to them by releasing a series of fiercely uncompromising, platinum albums, including Vulgar Display of Power and Far Beyond Driven—two #1 albums that, like Metallicas And Justice for All, sold millions of copies despite minimal airplay.

Rex Browns memoir is the definitive account of life inside one of rocks biggest bands, which succeeded against all odds but ultimately ended in tragedy when iconic lead guitarist Darrell “Dimebag” Abbott was murdered mid-performance by a deranged fan.

This is a lucid account of the previously untold story behind one of the most influential bands in heavy metal history, written by the man best qualified to tell the truth about those incredible and often difficult years of fame and excess.

Synopsis:

This starkly honest memoir by Pantera bassist Rex Brown offers shocking insight into one of the most influential metal bands

About the Author

Rex Brown was born in 1966 in Graham, Texas. He joined Pantera in 1982. He has also played with Down and Kill Devil Hill.

Co-author Mark Eglinton is an author, journalist and film-producer currently based in Edinburgh, Scotland. His first book entitled James Hetfield: The Wolf At Metallicas Door was published in April of 2010 to considerable critical acclaim, fuelled by regular radio appearances across the U.S and Europe to promote it.

He also writes regularly for Outburn magazine and various music websites as well as co-producing a series of rock interview documentaries entitled The Greatest Music Ever Created, And How It Ruined Our Lives, which is co-hosted in conjunction with Metal Hammer magazine. Eglintons role in Browns life has become one of friend and confidant, mostly during time spent on the road with Down in Europe.
