Rex Brown “Official Truth, 101 Proof: The Inside Story of Pantera” Book To Release November 27?

Bassist Rex Brown (Pantera/Down/Kill Devil Hill) was recently interviewed by Metal Mark over at SkullsNBones.com to discuss his new band Kill Devil Hill. Rex also talked about the details about his upcoming book Official Truth, 101 Proof: The Inside Story of Pantera. According to Brown, this book won’t be his last and the release date is targeted for Nov. 27 via Da Capo Press. From the interview:

We are still going through the editing process, but it’s basically my tale of the Pantera years from my point of view. I was always the silent guy in the band. I never did interviews, so I was approached with this idea and I was down for it. I didn’t realize how much work would be involved (laughs), but it’s going to cool man. I just finished it two days ago and now I need to take a break from it for a couple of weeks or sure. It’s just my inside story of what was going on. It leads up to the breakup, Dime’s death, and to now. There is only four people in that band that knew what was going on, so this will just be my interpretation on those years. I’ll say this, it probably won’t be my last book either. It’s a lot of work though. We went through a thousand photos, stories, memories, everything dude so it’s an insightful view that most fans would never know of if it weren’t for the book. I think it’s got a lot of things that people don’t know and should know, and I hope the people enjoy it. We are shooting for it to be released on November 27th through Da Capo Press, but so many things can happen, so we’ll see. It’s a good read for sure. (read full interview here)
