Vinnie Paul: 'No Dimebag, No Pantera'
During the past several weeks, fans once again got their hopes up over the possibility of a Pantera reunion featuring Zakk Wylde on guitar.

Phil Anselmo, Rex Brown and Wylde joining forces for the performance of "I'm Broken" and Phil's subsequent remarks about being open to the reformation of Pantera seemingly brought the idea back to the table, but Vinnie Paul is still standing his ground and has now stressed in the most blatant way possible that the reunion isn't going to happen.

"No Dimebag Darrell, no Pantera," he told Une Dose 2 Metal show. "It just doesn't fly; it's not gonna work."

During a separate 99X radio chat, Vinnie further addressed the matter, saying that any sort of "hacked" new lineup would "tarnish" the band's legacy.

"The legacy of [Pantera] is pretty amazing, and I don't want it ever being tarnished by any kind of hack version of the band going out there," he said (via Blabbermouth). "It's not the same without Dime being a part of it. And I think it's just great history and we need to leave it alone, and everybody that was part of it needs to move on."

"I'm really proud of where I'm at Hellyeah, I love the music that we're making, I love where we're going with this band," the drummer concluded.
