Phil Anselmo Performs Pantera Classic With Black Label Society
Fans wondering what a Pantera reunion featuring Zakk Wylde would sound like were given a tantalizing glimpse at a Black Label Society show on May 10. The audience of the band's show at Best Buy Theater in New York was treated to an unexpected rendition of the Pantera classic "I'm Broken," featuring none other than Phil Anselmo on vocals. Check it out below.

Zakk Wylde has often been mooted as a replacement for Dimebag Darrell, the Pantera guitarist who was killed in 2004. Speaking to Artisan News (via Blabbermouth) in 2013, Wylde stated that he would be up for filling in for his departed friend:

"It'd be up to [former Pantera members] Vinnie [Paul Abbott, drums], Phil and Rex [Brown, bass] - they're the guys that make everything happen," he said. "So if they were all gonna do it and honor Dimebag and [if they said to me], 'Zakk, would you wanna honor Dime and do Dime's parts?'

"Of course, I was a pallbearer for him - I laid him to rest - so, of course, I'd say, it would be a beautiful way to honor him and stuff like that. And to celebrate all things Pantera and what they achieved. 'Cause they changed the game, as far as extreme metal goes. I mean, they're the kings of it. But it's up to the fellows. Then it would just be me woodsheddin' 25-8, learning all of Dime's parts, you know what I mean?! Yeah, but like I said, as far as I'm concerned, it would just be honoring Dime. Like with the Yankees, you honor ... everybody's wearing Thurman Munson's '15' for that day, just because we're honoring Thurman's greatness. So it's the same thing, man."
