Vinnie Paul Not Interested In Playing With Pantera Pals

A collective sigh of frustration was just released by all lovers of filthy Southern friend metal.

Yes, yes — despite Zakk Wylde’s wildest dreams, Pantera will not reunite if Vinnie Paul Abbott has any say in the matter.

“I don’t live in the past, man,” says Vinnie Paul. I wanna look forward, I wanna keep moving forward.”

He says while he understands fans “wanting to see it, especially people who’ve never had an opportunity to see Pantera, but without my brother being part of it, it just doesn’t make any sense.”

I agree. I know some people say it would be cool to have a single reunion gig where the band played with a variety of guitarists. But it wouldn’t be Pantera.

Dime was a huge part of what made Pantera awesome.

“I’m not gonna trample on his legacy to make some people happy. We had 14 amazing years together and we sold nearly 40 million records around the world. That’s some pretty amazing stuff. And the band is, actually, to me, bigger today than it was then. I mean, it really is; it’s really grown and grown and grown. There’s plenty of DVDs and videos out there for them to watch. And I would highly suggest you come and see me play with Hellyeah, ’cause that’s what I do.”
