Philip Anselmo Tells the Tale That Inspired Pantera’s ’5 Minutes Alone’ – Exclusive Video

The 20th anniversary edition of Pantera‘s classic album ‘Far Beyond Driven’ is now available to buy! The reissue commemorates not only the great music held within, but the accomplishments no other ultra-aggressive metal album had achieved before. In this part of our exclusive video series on ‘Far Beyond Driven,’ vocalist Philip Anselmo goes deep into the track ’5 Minutes Alone.’

‘Far Beyond Driven’ is widely thought to be the first truly heavy metal album to hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 list. Pantera’s rabid fan base deserves a huge amount of credit for making history, as do crunchy anthems such as ’5 Minutes Alone.’

“That actually came from a real situation where, for a f—ing change, I wasn’t guilty of starting some offstage brawl or some crap like that,” Anselmo describes. “Here comes this lawsuit and it’s this guy claiming that I jumped offstage and beat him up. His Dad had quotes and one of his Dad’s quotes was, ‘I don’t care about any lawsuit, I’d just like to get that Phil Anselmo five minutes alone.’ My manager answered him back, ‘No, you wouldn’t.’” [Laughs]

Watch Philip Anselmo tell the ’5 Minutes Alone’ tale in the video above and stay tuned for more videos coming this entire week!
