30 June 1968 (age 49)
New Orleans, Louisiana, United States
Philip Anselmo was the singer of the 90's metal band Pantera. Pantera consisted of:
Phil Anselmo on Vocals
'Dimebag' Darrell Abbott on guitar
Vinnie Paul Abbott on Drums
Rex Brown on Bass
Pantera achieved wide recognition through the years with songs such as 'Cowboys From Hell', 'Walk', and other hits. Pantera broke up in the year 2003. Phil Anselmo has been part of many side projects over the years such as the short lived band Superjoint Ritual, and is currently touring with his current project Down. They are scheduled to release a new album soon. Bad blood is present between Vinnie Paul, brother of Pantera's deceased and legendary guitarist Dimebag Darrell; and Rita Haney, Darrell's girlfriend. The feud involved distasteful things Anselmo had said about Dimebag before his horrific onstage murder. Pantera is credited with saving metal from extinction, guiding it through the era of Alternative and Grunge.
In July 2013 he releases his first solo album under the name Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals.
