Rex Brown says that he is up for teaming up with Philip Anselmo and Zakk Wylde for a special tour celebrating the music of PANTERA.
Brown made the comment in response to an interview “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott‘s longtime girlfriend Rita Haney gave last month in which she said she would “definitely” be in favor of Anselmo, Brown and Wylde embarking on such a trek.
Brown took to his Twitter to write:
“I wanna make sure that ppl understand what I’m about to tweet.. It’s not up to Rita to say what will happen, only what Philip & I say…I’m in!! Dig?!?!?”
Earlier Rita said:
“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.”
