Backstage Auctions is proud to present one of the most anticipated auction events of the year featuring the private collection of Rex Brown. As one of the driving forces behind 'Groove Metal', Rex Brown is globally known as the bassist for Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling band Pantera. Having amassed a remarkable collection of gear and equipment during his nearly 20 years in Pantera, Rex believes there is a better purpose for all his stuff and now after fourteen years in storage, it's hitting the auction block. The collection features an impressive array of personal items from his Pantera years including stage worn shirts, picks, bass strings, posters, guitar straps, promo items, record awards, amps, cabinets, road cases and of course it wouldn't be complete without a breath taking selection of his bass guitars. Hands down this will be a once-in-a-lifetime auction. Die-hard Pantera fans and collectors will not want to miss this event!
"I took a look at all of my old Pantera gear. I realized I had a ton of bass guitars, amps, cabinets, road cases and other great stuff just sitting in storage collecting dust. I felt they really should be in the hands of the fans who would love to own a piece of Pantera history. I have all my Pantera love and memories in my heart and soul. Of course, I am keeping the things that are important to me, but there are a lot of treasured items here and it's time for the next generation to care for them." - Rex BrownNever before has there been any Pantera memorabilia offered in a single auction by one of the original members. This is going to be a hugely exciting event and we are honored to host this auction for Rex.
