(Metal Hammer) The public exchange of insults that led up to Pantera splitting in 2003 wasn't necessary, says bassist Rex Brown. And he's recalled how he tried to keep out of the fight but wound up attempting to play the peacemaker as relations between frontman Phil Anselmo and drummer Vinnie Paul disintegrated.

The murder of guitarist Dimebag in 2004 put an end to any chance of a reunion, and the bad feeling between Anselmo and Paul remains unresolved. Brown tells Loudwire: "There's a bunch of stuff that went back and forth between Vinnie and Philip in the press, and I wasn't very thrilled with it.

"At the time I didn't feel that was necessary. We could have taken care of those problems, like we always have. At that point we needed to take a serious break. We'd been going for 12 years straight. I was caught in the middle and I didn't like the way it went down.

"It was a rough time, man. It really was." Read more here.
