Phil Anselmo loves Mount Carmel

Columbus Alive

I popped by Rock on the Range for a few hours Sunday afternoon to take in the sights and sounds, and what did I witness but Down frontman Phil Anselmo (the former Pantera howler) inviting Mount Carmel guitarist Matt Reed on stage to shower the Columbus blues rocker with props. Seemed like a strange juxtaposition, but I guess it makes sense that a Bayou-bred heavy metal lug would rock out to the buttery blues of "Real Women." Still one of those "whoa" moments.
