Watch Phil Anselmo and The Illegals Pay Tribute To Bruce Corbitt with En Minor Song

As we reported yesterday, the world lost thrash metal legend and an all-around great person, Bruce Corbitt, when he died as a result of his battle with esophageal cancer at the young age of 56. After posting several tributes to Bruce during the day, Phil Anselmo, who was the best man as Corbitt’s wedding, opened the Phil Anselmo and The Illegals show last night in Santiago Chile with the song ‘Better Place’ from his new post-punk/goth project En Minor. In possibly one of the first performances of the track or any En Minor music live that we know of, the band played the beautiful song for the lost friend. Anselmo and bandmate Blue Gonzalez, formerly of Corbitt’s Warbeast band, also shared a short video tribute to Bruce, stating “I have so much I can possibly say about Bruce, and I will eventually. But for right now, all I can say is I send my love to his wife, his daughter, his mother and everybody that was close to him. The guys in WARBEAST, the guys in RIGOR MORTIS, all the DFW [Dallas-Fort Worth] fans, I love you so much, and I know Bruce loved you so much. I wouldn’t even know Blue if it weren’t for Bruce. And there’s a lot to sort through and a lot to deal with. Over the next few days, just find it in your heart to think about Bruce and his family and his music and his impact on heavy metal and music in general. And that’s really all I can say right now. We love you.”
