(Classic Rock) Anselmo Tarnished Pantera's Image Says Vinnie Paul was a top 16 story of October 2016: Vinnie Paul says Phil Anselmo has done "a lot of things" to tarnish Pantera's memory since the band split in 2001. The former Pantera and current Hellyeah drummer says he hasn't seen vocalist Anselmo since Pantera's last gig in 2001 and insists any rumours of a potential reunion with Zakk Wylde filling in for the late Dimebag Darrell are well wide of the mark.

Anselmo hit the headlines earlier in 2016 with his "white power" outburst at a gig in memory of Dimebag, and Paul says the singer has done untold damage to the Pantera brand.

Paul tells R7: "I can't speak for him. He's done a lot of things that tarnish the image of what Pantera was back then and what it stood for and what it was all about. And it's sad.

"But I carry on with what I do, which is Hellyeah, which I'm very, very proud of. And, you know, I can't control anything that goes on with that dude. I mean, honestly, I haven't spoken to him since 2000."

On the seemingly non-stop rumours that Black Label Society's Zakk Wylde could replace Dimebag in a reunited Pantera, Paul adds: "For me personally, it's been over since Pantera was over." Read more here.
