Pantera Fans Call For Reunion Tour
Though Vinnie Paul has dismissed the idea of a Pantera reformation without his brother Dimebag Darrell as "ridiculous," fans of the band are calling for a reunion tour in tribute to the late guitarist. Fans on Facebook are banding together to ask Texas groove metal act Pantera's surviving members Vinnie Paul, Rex Brown and Phil Anselmo to play either a one-off show or a series of US shows in memory of Dimebag. The fans specifiy that they are not calling for the band to reform, only to reunite for a single show or single tour. The fans are making it clear that they do not want the band to attempt to "replace" Dimebag Darrell in any permanent capacity, and are instead suggesting possible guest guitarists to appear on the tour. Comments on the Facebook Cause page seem to favor recruiting former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde to fill in, though the idea of having multiple guest guitarists is also popular. The fans' request comes only days after Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott slammed the idea of a Pantera reformation in an interview with the Russian e-zine Darkside, saying: "It's ridiculous. Dime was such a huge part of it; it would be just completely asinine to even consider that. I think it's pretty disrespectful from people to even suggest it."
