Zakk Wylde Posts A Pantera Video Tease -Meltdown
Zakk Wylde posted a video tease for the upcoming ‘Pantera’ shows. I’m on the record saying that I don’t like it being called Pantera. ‘A tribute to’, or ‘celebration of’ would’ve been more appropriate in my opinion, but who am I?
Of course, it’s Rex Brown, Phil Anselmo with Zakk and Charlie Benante on drums. I talked about this on a recent episode of my Talkin’ Rock podcast with Charlie’s nephew and fellow Anthrax member, Frank Bello. “Look, you have to understand, we were very, very, very close with PANTERA. We were family; that’s our family. So if there’s one guy in the world to play drums and pay tribute to this thing, it’s Charlie Benante — right off the bat. He was very close with Dime, very close with Vinnie. We all were; we all were. So that’s family to us.” He went on to add “So I think it’s a great celebration. I’ll be there watching it. I can’t wait. I think it’s a great thing. Can you imagine the people that haven’t seen this are gonna see these songs live? That’s a great thing. So I think it’s great for metal. I think it’s great to pay tribute to Dime and Vinnie.”
What are you thoughts on this? Are you going to go see it? I’ll also go on record saying that I’m going to see it!
