In an interview with Eric Blair, the late Dimebag Darrell’s girlfriend Rita Harney talked about the possible Pantera reunion with surviving members Rex Brown (Bass), Phil Anselmo (Vocals) and longtime Dimebag friend, guitarist Zakk Wylde. Previously, Zakk said he would be ok with the idea of touring with Pantera.
“I don’t think there could be a Pantera reunion but I think that his two remaining brothers, Rex and Philip – if they wanted to honor Darrell and Vinnie [Paul, drums]…
“What I believe Darrell would believe because he was the most forgiving person that I know, I believe that he would be honored.
“It’s kind of a cliche to say, but he truly would be grateful that he meant that much to them, and I think if they wanna honor their fallen brothers with a tribute, I think that that’s great.
“But as far as trying to put Pantera back together – no, that’s distasteful without those other guys.
“But I think as a tribute, it would be a really great thing because I know, from a fan’s point, if I hadn’t been able to see them play or hear those songs – I can imagine other people as well, I think it’s great that they could at least see it performed – and by people that truly love ’em. So, yeah, I think it would be a really cool thing.”
“I definitely would. I’d wanna be at every show. [Laughs]”
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
