During Down’s September 9 set at the Blue Ridge Rock Festival in Alton, VA, Phil Anselmo dedicated “Lifer” to his late Pantera bandmates, Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul. The frontman said the following:
“This next song goes out to Dimebag and Vince. I want you all to throw down. If you know these motherfucking lyrics, sing this shit with me. This is one called ‘Lifer.'”
This news comes as Pantera are preparing to return with a new lineup consisting of Anselmo, Rex Brown, Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society), and Charlie Benante (Anthrax).
