Vinnie Paul on Pantera Reunion: 'Without Dimebag? It's Never Gonna Happen'
Speculation that Pantera is set to reform may never cease, but at least one member of the renown metal act is saying a firm "no" to any hope of a reunion. Drummer Vinnie Paul, brother to Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell, who died on-stage in 2004, is famously at odds with their former singer Phil Anselmo and refused to rekindle their relationship despite several olive branches from Phil. Some fans support the idea that Zakk Wylde will could up the axe for Pantera and Wylde supports the idea as a way of paying tribute to Darrell. "It's like Randy Rhoads. You're celebrating his greatness and honoring all things he has done with Pantera," said Wylde in May. But Vinnie has made it very clear on his stance regarding rumors of a Pantera reunion. "How does Pantera get back together without Dimebag Darrell? That's the bottom line. It's never gonna happen," he said. In the same interview, after paying tribute to late Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman, Vinnie added that there is more Dimebag Darrell material to share with fans in the future. "Whenever I find the time and I think the time is right, I'll definitely find a way to put it out and get it out for people to hear," he said. "My brother still has a lot of great works that people haven't heard, and I definitely want people to hear it." Vinnie is currently touring with Hellyeah alongside Megadeth as part of the Gigantour.
