ANSELMO CREATES MUSIC WITH POT

Last year, former   PANTERA   frontman   Philip Anselmo   and his solo band,   THE ILLEGALS , were guests on Santiago, Chile's   "Waka Weed TV" show . During the chat, which has just now been uploaded to   YouTube ,   Anselmo   spoke about his reliance on marijuana as a way to spark creativity and treat chronic pain.

He said (see video below): "I deal with back pain every fucking day, so, for me, right now, going the all-natural route — it's all [as] natural as I possibly can for the last, I guess, a year and a half solid; really dedicated to it. I quit drinking — what? — three years ago or something like that, almost four now. So, yeah, the weed is important — it's important… Especially when you're writing music, doing music, creating music for me — I love the pot, because it does help me focus."

He continued: "Imagine each project that I have — each band has its own sound; they all sound unique. That way I can focus on the style of the band. And I take that style and expand it under its own genre — maybe even branch out. I don't know.

"Creating music with pot is the way to go, and I've always known that, since I was a kid. Even listening to music. When I was younger, you could blare something on the stereo in front of me, but until I smoked weed, that's when I locked down and listened. That's when I would be, like, 'Oh, wow! I feel the power of this.'"

In January 2019,   Anselmo   undwent back surgery — the latest in a line of corrective procedures designed to helped him deal with the damage to his back, neck, and knees sustained over three decades of touring.

PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS ' second album,   "Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue" , was released last year via   Anselmo 's   Housecore Records   in the U.S. and   Season Of Mist   in other parts of the world.
