Rex Brown On Pantera/Zakk Wylde Rumours: “You Can’t Replace My Brother”
Former Pantera and Down bassist Rex Brown has commented on the relationship between Vinnie Paul and Phil Anselmo and those long held Zakk Wylde/Pantera rumours in a new interview with the San Antonion Metal Music Examiner.
Check it out…
San Antonio Metal Music Examiner: Where do you stand on Vinnie and Phil not having spoken all these years?
Rex: Vinnie’s just not open to talking to either one of us. Nothing to do with me. I have no problem talking to Vince. We emailed a couple times, but nothing major. You know, we keep hearing rumors about a reunion with Zakk Wylde on guitar, and that is such bullshit. You can’t replace my brother.
San Antonio Metal Music Examiner: Do you have a favorite memory or story of Dimebag you’d like to share?
Rex: There are so many. Where do I start? Over the years, there were so many shenanigans and pranks. Dime always had a camera with him. I called him “the irreplaceable arm.” He always had a guitar in one hand and a camera in the other and would capture everything on film. Just pulling pranks. It’s all been very well documented in the home videos, and I’m saving some of that for the book. As much as he entertained, you know, he had to have entertainment back.
Fair point. In the mean time, we can at least enjoy new Pantera single ‘Piss‘.
