“Dimebag” Darrell Abbott‘s longtime girlfriend says that she would “definitely” be in favor of Philip Anselmo, Rex Brown and Zakk Wylde embarking on a special tour celebrating the music of PANTERA.
“I don’t think there could be a PANTERA reunion, but I think that his two remaining brothers, Rex and Philip, if they wanted to honor Darrell and Vinnie, as far as where I’m coming from and what I believe Darrell would believe — because he was the most forgiving person that I know — I believe that he would be honored.
It’s kind of a cliché to say, but he truly would be grateful that he meant that much to them. And I think if they wanna honor their fallen brothers with a tribute, I think that that’s great.
But as far as trying to say put PANTERA back together, PANTERA tribute, this and that, no — that’s distasteful without those other guys. But I think as a tribute, it would be a really great thing. Because I know, from a fan’s point, if I hadn’t been able to see them play or hear those songs — the songs, they mean so much to me; I can imagine [they do to] other people as well. I think it’s great that they can at least see it performed, and by people that truly love ’em. So, yeah, I think it would be a really cool thing.”
When asked to clarify if she would “be okay with a tour,” she responded: “I definitely would. I’d wanna be at every show. [Laughs]”
