Zakk Wylde Discusses Pantera Rumors

(Gibson) Lately, rumors have swirled that that guitar great Zakk Wylde would be joining Pantera in "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott's place for a reunion or tribute tour. So, is there any truth to the buzz? According to the man himself, nothing is set, but he's certainly not closed to the idea.

"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
