Judas Priest’s Rob Halford recently had a chat with “Cutter’s Rock Cast”, where he shared his opinion about the Pantera reunion.
“Is this Pantera thing gonna be amazing or what? We’re gonna be doing the first show together [at this year’s edition of Mexico’s Hell & Heaven Metal Fest].”
More, the singer continued sharing his opinion about Zakk Wylde and Charlie Benante, saying both are the right people to step in for Dimebag and Vinnie Paul.
“If you know about the way Charlie feels about Pantera, you know the way Zakk feels, the skill that they both have to do the songs justice.
“Man, this is important, it’s important. And Phil‘s voice is the voice of Pantera. What Rex does is as important? So, what’s not to love about this really special moment that we’re all gonna go nuts?
“I can’t wait to hear Zakk start churning out [starts humming ”Walk” riff].
“I’m gonna be on the side of the stage, ’cause we’re both on the same bill that night. I’m gonna be banging my head like a maniac. I’m so happy for them.”
