Vinnie Paul once again addressed the matter of a hypothetical Pantera reunion featuring Zakk Wylde on guitar, calling the idea's supporters "selfish" and the overall approach "stupid."
"People are selfish, man," Vinnie told EMP Rock Invasion (via Blabbermouth). "They want what they want; they don't care what you want. And it's unfortunate that people go, 'Oh, wow, man, they can get Zakk Wylde to jump up there on stage and it's Pantera again.' No, it's not, you know. It's not that simple."
The skinsman then brought up a question aimed at reunion supporters. "If Eddie Van Halen was to get shot in the head four times next week, would everybody be going, 'Hey, man, Zakk, go play for Van Halen. Just call it Van Halen.' You see what I'm saying? I mean, it's really selfish for people to think that, and it's stupid. It's not right at all."
In conclusion, Vince added, "They call it a reunion for a reason. It's called bringing the original members back to what it was. So there's a lot of these things that they call reunions that aren't really reunions. They've got one dude from the band floating around in them, you know. That's not a true reunion. With Pantera, it'll never be possible."
