Modus Operandi: Rex Brown

By: Remco Post

A bit of a strange edition this month of Modus Operandi. I really wasn't sure if I had to publish this article, but hereby the answer. After several emails with a very friendly Rex Brown his management and later his assistant took over the communication, and from that point on a lot was promised but nothing was realized. A few times I got Rex on the line, but I got nothing more if I did not had an appointment. I simply gave up after a while and the score was that I had the list of gear complete, but that I never got an answer to the general questions. Again a bit of a strange edition, but you can read in this article what the legendary Rex Brown used in Down, Pantera and now in Kill Devil Hill.
