Rex Brown Confirms Collaboration With Judas Priest’s Richie Faulkner
Former Pantera bassist Rex Brown confirmed a collaboration with Judas Priest’s Richie Faulkner in a recent interview. You can check out the full conversation below.
Asked by Tone-Talk if there are any guitarists he’d like to work with, Brown responded (as transcribed by Blabbermouth), “I made a record – it hasn’t come out yet – I made it with Richie Faulkner. Richie and I have become really good friends. And it’s just getting heavier and cooler. Richie is a very melodic player, and then he has my drummer who played on my first solo record, and they followed him playing on one of these electronic kits, and they sampled the sounds in a real kit – which I’m not too crazy about; it’s not like that I would. But that’s Richie’s record. And he has a new singer now. I don’t know when it comes out. These guys [Judas Priest] are still on tour. It was a real thrill.”
Brown previously hinted at collaborating with Faulkner with Anti-hero. He called the tracks “badass”. At the time, he didn’t say who the collaborator was, hinting, “He moved to Nashville and became a really, really good friend of mine. And we just cut six fucking flamboyant tracks. Un-goddam-real.”
