Zakk Wylde Discusses Pantera Rumors
"That's up to Vinnie [Paul Abbott], Rex [Brown], and Phil [Anselmo]," Wylde told the Phoenix New Times. "If they ever wanted me to honor Dimebag, of course I would do it.
"It's not replacing anybody — you're talking about Dime. It's like Randy Rhoads. You're celebrating his greatness and honoring all things Pantera.
"[Dimebag and I have] always just played what we love, and honoring the guys we got it from. Van Halen, Randy Rhoads, Jimmy Page, Tony Iommi . . . Dime was a big Ace Frehley guy. It's the whole trickle-down effect. If anyone is inspired by Dime, then they are inspired by all those guys I just mentioned. That's the beautiful thing about music, you know what I mean? It's all kept alive that way." more on this story
