Pantera Reunion Would Definately Have Happened!


Phil Anselmo says he thinks a Pantera reunion would have definitely happened if late guitarist Dimebag Darrell Abbott was still alive.

Anselmo told the San Antonio Metal Music Examiner, "I think about Pantera more than I could ever put into words. It’s a daily thing. A lot of the time it’s hilarious stuff, funny memories, great memories, and then, of course, you do have your regrets. And then, of course, you do have your fantasy-wish, dream-world scenarios where Dimebag is still alive and there was this window opportunity to patch things up, which I do believe would have happened."

"Golly, I would love to be with that group of guys again and touring and doing what we did back in the day. But that’s just wishful thinking," Anselmo goes on to say.

As for Vinnie Paul, Anselmo pulls no punches when talking about his former Pantera bandmate.

"Vinnie Paul, he has no effect on my life at all, no effect at all. Good job, I’ll say to Vince, you’ve hurt me. And you keep on hurting me. Great job! Where is it getting you? That’s my question to him. My door has always been wide open, and I’ll leave it at that, because I think everybody else knows the rest. It’s pretty A-B-C simple," declared Anselmo.
