NASHVILLE, TN (December 9, 2022)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 music 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 front men 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.

It’s the bonds that tie…” “’Icons’ with Rex Brown takes this series to A New Level,” adds Cesar Gueikian, Gibson Brand President. “I’ve gotten to know Rex very well over the years and it’s been a privilege to witness the ideation and evolution of the new Pantera formation, and how much it means to Phil and Rex to pay tribute to Dime and Vinnie. Rex opens up in ways that I only saw during the long evenings we spent sharing our stories and playing guitar. It was important to Rex to tell us his story and the story of Pantera, and it’s emotionally powerful. I am proud of this episode and the work the Gibson TV team did to bring Rex’s story to fans around the world.” Watch and share the Rex Brown episode of “Icons” on Gibson TVHERE.Click the photo above to play the Rex Brown episode of “Icons” on Gibson TV.
