Pantera's Rex Brown spoke with Metal Hammer about the new book "A Vulgar Display Of Pantera," and he answered the inevitable question about the surviving members of the group staging a reunion.

They asked Rex "We'd be remiss if we didn't ask about the persistent reunion rumors..." and he simply responded "Ain't happening in the near future."

Brown was asked if the band set out to become as popular they became and he said, "No, we were just trying to keep expanding the fanbase we had. On the Cowboys From Hell tour, we went from playing every little venue from Maine to Tijuana to Vancouver to the tip of Florida and everywhere in between. We were out for about 338 days on that first tour in an RV. Then we came back and literally didn't take us long at all to write Vulgar Display. [The mindset was], 'Hey look, we can take all of these fans with us.' We set out to do that and we did. It wasn't like we were trying to be this extremely metal phenomenon, that's just what naturally came out. About that time, Metallica had put out the Black Album and in between that and Nirvana, it gave us a little opportunity to get in there and it was the right music at the right time. Think about how many good albums just haven't done anything. There's no formula; we just kept doing what we kept doing." Read the full interview here.
