Guitarist Zakk Wylde is still very much up for participating in Pantera reunion and taking over late axeman Dimebag Darrell's parts.
Wylde described the reunion to Artisan News as a great way to pay homage to both Dime and the group's overall impact, still stressing that surviving Pantera members are the one calling the shots on the entire matter.
"If they were like 'We're gonna do it and honor Dimebag' and 'Zakk, would you wanna honor Dime?' and everything - I'd play," Zakk said. "It'd be a beautiful way to honor him and to celebrate all things Pantera and what they achieved, cause they changed the game.
"As far as extreme metal goes - they're the kings of it," the axeman noted. "But it's up to the fellows. As far as I'm concerned, it would be just honoring Dime," he concluded.
The matter of Pantera reunion was thoroughly discussed online over the years, but do you think Zakk's latest explanation could make a difference? And the everlasting question - should Pantera reunite? Let us know in the comments.
