I, of course, have been a huge Pantera fan since the 90’s, but I became a Philip Anselmo fan the day I photographed my very first show in 2014, on that occasion with Down. Philip treated me like I was Ross Halfin, introduced me to the crowd, and gave me a memorable experience that I will never forget.
I got really flipping’ excited as Phil Anselmo hit the stage. What a driving force behind American Metal, the man is a legend. As he walked into the stage, Phil announced, “This set is in memory of Dimebag” and brought the house down with that.
