Despite reports that Zakk Wylde and Pantera’s frontman discussed him filling in for Dimebag for a possible reunion, Phil Anselmo says that shit never happened.
“That whole thing was taken way out of context,” says Phil in a new interview.
“All that happened was Zakk and I spoke and what it was about was just a personal issue between he and I that was worked out quickly and easily,” Phil explains.
“We were cozy as kittens after that, and we just shot the shit. And honestly? The whole Pantera thing did not come up at all. Whoever interviewed me, and I fuckin’ forget the whole thing, but it was taken out of context because we didn’t even talk about Pantera reuniting or anything like that. Matter of fact, we talked about relations and mutual friends and just honestly everybody getting along and that’s really all we talked about.”
