Dave Hill jams with Phil Anselmo at House of Blues


A few weeks ago, Dave Hill, a Cleveland musician/writer/comedian who’s now based out of New York, and former Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo filmed a webisode series for Adult Swim at Anselmo’s sprawling home/compound located just outside of New Orleans. Dubbed Metal Grasshopper, the show revolves around the premise that Anselmo will educated Hill in the ways of metal. A live goat is somehow involved in the process (and a picture of Anselmo, Hill and goat has circulated on the web). The show is due out this fall. In town to visit his 81-year-old father, Hill spent some more quality time with Anselmo, who played House of Blues last night with his new band the Illegals.
