Video: Phil Anselmo Performs Pantera’s “Walk” with Cancer-Stricken Fan

  • Axl Rosenberg

This morning I woke up to a flood of e-mails from excited Phil Anselmo fans, all directing me towards the vocalist’s official website. What’s got everyone so excited? This:

“Last night Peyton Arens had a blast tearing it up performing the Pantera classic ‘Walk’ with Philip H. Anselmo and the Illegals at last night’s show in Tulsa. Peyton has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma. You can check out his page and make a donation to his cause here.

Obviously, this is a beyond-awesome thing of Phil to do — I know we’re not used to thinking of the dude who begged for “5 Minutes Alone” with someone so he could beat the shit outta them as a sweetheart, but this honestly makes me wanna give the guy a big ol’ bear hug.

Here’s video of the event:

Anselmo’s tour with Warbeast and Author & Punisher continues tonight in Des Moines. Get dates here.
