Phil Anselmo on His Feud With Vinnie Paul: 'It's Time for Some Peace'
In a recent interview with Wikimetal, Down frontman Phil Anselmo discussed his ongoing feud with drummer Vinnie Paul and chances of metal giants Pantera ever getting back together. The vocalist admitted discussing such an option with Zakk Wylde, adding that they both agreed on Vinnie Paul holding the reunion back the most. "Honestly - and I've spoken with Zakk about it as well - we're very aware of the public perception out there, but honestly, until I speak with Vinnie Paul, which has not yet happened, and it doesn't look like it's going to happen, nothing can happen. Honestly, I tell you, my phone is on the hook, my e-mail is wide open, my door is wide open. I would love to talk with Vince." According to Anselmo, talking with Vinnie Paul would "mean the world" to him and the time they both sat down and discussed their issues is long overdue. In his words, it's time for some peace and brotherhood. "Honestly, if there were no more bad feelings and we could talk, and we could come to an understanding, I think it would mean not only a lot for me and myself - it would mean the world to me - but it would mean a great deal to the fans out there as well. I think people don't want to see this arguing anymore. It's time for some peace. It's time for some brotherhood. And honestly, we should be setting an example instead of being the opposite. And I'll just say that my door is wide open, and so far, Vinnie's door is closed, and it's a shame." Its been about 10 years since the two have last spoken which is a long time. Their already bad relationship took a turn for the worse when Paul publicly blamed Anselmo for the death of his brother Dimebag Darrell, saying that some of his comments in the press might have driven the murderer to take a final step and kill Darrell.
