Get your hype ready people: a Pantera reunion is quite possible. Guitarist Zakk Wylde is very interesting in participating in such a reunion, taking over late axeman Dimebag Darrell’s parts.
Wylde discusses such a feat, talking about how it’s a great way to pay homage to Dimebag, while also pleasing fans and providing a great experience for remaining band members.
“If they were like ‘We’re gonna do it and honor Dimebag’ and ‘Zakk, would you wanna honor Dime?’ and everything – I’d play,” Zakk said. “It’d be a beautiful way to honor him and to celebrate all things Pantera and what they achieved, cause they changed the game. “As far as extreme metal goes – they’re the kings of it,” the axeman noted. “But it’s up to the fellows. As far as I’m concerned, it would be just honoring Dime,” he concluded.
The matter of Pantera reunion has been discussed for years and years, but now, the topic seems hotter than ever, and with these words from Zakk Wylde… I don’t know if it will happen, but a man can dream!
