Ex-PANTERA Bassist Rex Brown Says "I've Been Playing Metal Long Enough," "Time To Do Something Else"

"I've been playing metal long enough – I've been out on that bus for 25 years playing the same style of music – that's enough."

"I've been playing metal long enough - I've been out on that bus for 25 years playing the same style of music - that's enough."

After Pantera, bassist and guitarist Rex Brown departed from playing super heavy music and instead played some killer rock with Down, Kill Devil Hill, and even a little with David Allen Coe.

Now he's back with his solo album called Smoke On This, which showcases Brown's fantastic vocals and rock n' roll riffs, and you probably shouldn't expect him to switch from that style anytime soon. According to Brown's interview with Ultimate Guitar, he's pretty much done playing metal and doesn't expect to com back to it.

"I was the rock and roll guy in Pantera. I was always listening to Humble Pie and the whole gamut…

"My sister was 17 years old so I got to hear all The Beatles and The Stones and The Turtles and Strawberry Alarm Clock. Actually before that, she had Bill Haley and Chuck Berry and I actually have some old Elvis singles that she gave me.

"So my lineage goes way back further than just the metal thing. As much as I enjoy playing metal, and I still do, it's time to do something else.  I've been playing metal long enough – I've been out on that bus for 25 years playing the same style of music – that's enough."
