Why Anselmo never tires of Pantera question
Although frontman Phil still doesn’t think reunion will happen
Phil Anselmo says he doesn’t get bored of being asked about a Pantera reunion – even though he doesn’t think it’s going to happen.
The frontman, drummer Vinnie Paul and bassist Rex Brown field the query on a regular basis, and sometimes even indulge in speculation about who might replace late guitarist Dimebag on stage.
Anselmo tells National Rock Review: “It doesn’t really bother me. I understand the concern, the want. I understand, if the opportunity was there, what it would mean to a lot of people.”
But he continues: “Right now there’s really no truth in it. The only people within the band that even communicate are Rex and I. So it’s not very realistic.”
“I’m in a happy spot,” says the vocalist. “I can’t speak for Vince but it sure seems like he’s moving forward with his life. So it doesn’t bug me at all – but right now, it’s not realistic.”
