Rex Brown is no longer a member of Down — something we’ve sort of known for two months now.
You’d think Rex would reveal this information to his fan base, or that he’d release an official statement to some metal site like Gun Shy Assassin. But no, he saved the scoop for 8countnews, a fucking MMA Web site.
“I’m officially out of the band,” he says. “Things came to a head and they’re better off doing what they’re doing. They’ve got Patrick Bruders [from Crowbar] playing bass and I kind of lost my passion after a while. There were some other problems that we had to address and it just turned out better that we just parted ways.”
This, after months of members side-stepping questions, answering in vague terms, even though we all knew the dude was fucking out of the band.
