Black Label Society mainman Zakk Wylde says he'd be happy to take the place of the late Dimebag in a Pantera reunion.
The long-discussed possibility of Phil Anselmo and Vinnie Paul settling their differences in the name of their murdered bandmate took a step forward when the vocalist admitted he'd also like it to happen – because it would be good for them all.
Paul, now with HellYeah, hasn't made any moves in the direction of a gathering with Anselmo, bassist Rex Brown and Wylde.
But now the guitarist says: "Vinnie, Phil and Rex are the guys that make everything happen.
"If they were all going to do it and honour Dimebag, and they said, 'Zakk, would you want to do Dime's parts?' Of course!
"I was a pallbearer for him. I laid him to rest. It would be a beautiful way to honour him, and to celebrate all things Pantera.
"They changed the game – but it's up to the fellows."
