Zakk Wylde Still Down To Be Part Of Theoretical Pantera Reunion

Zakk Wylde

I feel like Zakk Wylde thinks that if he keeps saying it, it’ll eventually happen.

Like, if I said “I’d totally let Kate Upton break my dick off in her asshole” enough, maybe that, too, would happen.

As he has said many times before, Zakk Wylde recently reiterated that he’d be more than willing to participate in a reunion of a band he was never in.

Should Pantera regroup, Zakk says he’d wanna fill in on guitar for his late pal Dimebag Darrell Abbott.

He says if Pantera’s members “were all gonna do it and honor Dimebag and [if they said to me], ‘Zakk, would you wanna honor Dime and do Dime’s parts?’ Of course, I was a pallbearer for him — I laid him to rest — so, of course, I’d say, it would be a beautiful way to honor him and stuff like that.”

And a nice way to collect a fat paycheck.

“And to celebrate all things Pantera and what they achieved,” he says. “’Cause they changed the game, as far as extreme metal goes. I mean, they’re the kings of it. But it’s up to the fellows. Then it would just be me woodsheddin’ 25-8, learning all of Dime’s parts, you know what I mean?! Yeah, but like I said, as far as I’m concerned, it would just be honoring Dime. Like with the Yankees, you honor… everybody’s wearing Thurman Munson’s ’15’ for that day, just because we’re honoring Thurman’s greatness. So it’s the same thing, man.”
