Da Phil Anselmo var død

Da Phil Anselmo var død

Kan du huske hvad du lavede da du hørte at Phil Anselmo havde været død i flere minutter efter en heroin overdosis…?

13. juli 1996 var Pantera bannerføren trådt ned af scenen i Dallas, Texas..
Showet var endnu en magtdemonstration til gigantisk jubel for publikum.
Men Phil havde i lang tid være plaget af voldsomme rygsmerter forårsaget af tidligere turneers udskejelser.
Medierne havde kørt forsangeren op til at være en rå, maskulin superman i front for sit brutale entourage.
Men i så fald måtte misbrugergenet være hans kryptonit.
Ihvertfald var heroinsprøjten blevet hans nærmeste ven i tourbussen.
Og denne gang var den indskudte dosis af en dræbende karakter som medførte hjertestop og flere minutters død…
Kun takket vær de tilstedeværende venners hjælp og assistance blev Anselmo bitchslappet og overhældt med vand, til han vendte tilbage til det han kaldte et liv..

Dagen efter episoden udsendte Phil Anselmo denne ret så rå udtalelse i alverdens musikmedier:

I, Philip H. Anselmo, immediately after a very successful show in Dallas injected a lethal dose of Heroin into my arm, and died for 4 to 5 minutes. There was no lights, no beautiful music, just nothing. And then after 20 minutes (from what I heard later) my friends slapped me and poured water over my head all basically trying to revive me. The paramedics finally arrived and all I remember is waking up in the back of an ambulance. From that point on I knew all I wanted was to be back on the tour bus, going to the next gig. Instead I was going to the hospital where I was released very shortly. You see, I’m not a Heroin Addict. But I am (was) an intravenous drug abuser. The lesson learned here is that every nightmare ever heard about O.D.ing, and or, Heroin is terribly true. And for my friends and family as well as myself and our fans. (Pantera, Down Etc.), I since then have recovered completely, the Pantera Tour uninterrupted. I intend to keep it that way! Special Thanks to my Family and Friends who supported me, and the fans who pump me up to the hilt. One message to everyone in this fucking world. I am not a weakling groping for sympathy. I WILL NOT DIE SO EASILY! I’m here to piss off the music press for a long time to come.

Very Sincerely,

Philip Anselmo
