DOWN/ex-PANTERA frontman Philip Anselmo was interviewed by Fuse TV prior to DOWN's October 31, 2009 concert at the 11th annual Voodoo Experience music festival in New Orleans. Watch the chat below. Also available is footage of DOWN's performance at the event.DOWN's entire show can be viewed at Tyronehood.com. More than 150 acts played on eight stages in three separate areas — named Le Ritual, Le Flambeau and Le Carnival — around the city. Other major acts on the Voodoo Experience bill included KISS, JANE'S ADDICTION, WOLFMOTHER, EAGLES OF DEATH METAL and MEAT PUPPETS. Fuse will provide on-air and online coverage of the Voodoo Experience and will broadcast a one-hour special on November 6. DOWN bassist Rex Brown had his gallbladder and polyps on his pancreas removed in September in a surgical procedure. Rex is suffering from acute pancreatitis, a sudden inflammation of the pancreas which can have severe complications and high mortality despite treatment. A full and healthy recovery is expected. DOWN tapped Danny Theriot of Metairie, Louisiana to fill in on bass for the group's recent North American trek, which kicked off on August 3 at Beaumont Club in Kansas City, Kansas.
