Phil Anselmo has been giving Fuse (via Gun Shy Assassin) a guided tour of his house and home studio in Louisiana, revealing a number of interesting insights in the process.
As Anselmo notes, buying the rural home was motivated by his need to get away from the city at the height of Pantera's fame:
"I did not buy this place for the house. I bought it for the land. It's beautiful, very isolated. I wanted to get out of New Orleans. When I lived there, it was at the height of Pantera hysteria. It was no real secret where I lived. Kids would come over and beat on the door at 3 o'clock in the f--kin' morning. After a while it gets to be annoying."
The singer also revealed that he tries to live a self-reliant lifestyle, raising pigs and chickens, as well as growing fruit and fishing in the lake that runs through the property.
