Pepper Keenan: "There’s definitely a future for Down"


Down guitarist Pepper Keenan was recently interviewed by Metal Wani, you can read some excerpts below.


About Phil Anselmo's "white power" gesture and the future of Down, he said: "Well, I don’t why there wouldn’t be. You know, Down didn’t do anything wrong. I mean, we were just guilty by association on that one. That was Phil's mistake. I’ve spoken to Phil and told him to get his shit together, and he is. He knows he made a mistake and was being stupid. I’ve known the guy [most of my life]. He’s not what that whole thing framed him to be at all. But, yeah, there’s definitely a future for Down. I wouldn’t throw all the shit we’ve done, beautiful music we’ve done on one stupid moment that was caught on camera, and he apologized for. So we are far from done."
