Phil Anselmo Denies Talking To Zakk Wylde About PANTERA Reunion

A few weeks ago, the internet got all excited because Phil Anselmo stated that he discussed a potential Pantera reunion with guitarist Zakk Wylde, but ultimately said in order for it to happen drummer Vinnie Paul would have to make amends. Now, Phil is retracting the statement, and saying it was all taken out of context.

In a new interview with Ultimate-Guitar, Phil elaborated on his denial:

That whole thing was taken way out of context. 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. 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.

So don't get your panties in a twist. They were just making amends. Or could this just be Phil backtracking because some handlers got to him and told him to do press control? Either way, do not hold your breathe for a Pantera reunion with Zakk Wylde, because it's not happening, at least not any time soon.
