philanselmobanner

Pantera and Down singer Phil Anselmo and true crime best-seller Corey Mitchell have teamed up to bring you Anselmo’s autobiography, tentatively titled Mouth For War: Pantera, Pain, & Pride – Heavy Metal Highs, Drugged Out Lows, & The Battle For My Life. Agent Jeff Herman had been shopping the book around and the proposal was picked up by Jeremie Ruby-Strauss at Gallery/Simon & Schuster. The book is tentatively scheduled for a 2014 release.

The description states that the book is, “a no-holds barred look inside of Philip’s brain, his history with Pantera, the loss of his best-friend, Dimebag Darrell, and an unflinching examination into the downward spiral of pain and drug addiction that nearly cost him his life.

Author Mitchell was given carte blanche to interview anyone and everyone he deemed necessary to get the full story.

I, for one, am definitely excited to check out this book! Who else is interested in reading about Phil and his story?
