During a recent conversation with Guitar World, guitarist Zakk Wylde mentioned that he never got the chance to jam together with Pantera’s late guitarist Dimebag Darrell.
Regarding this topic and the relationship between the two, Wylde said:
“It was a combination of everything. Between the playing, the drinking, how we matched our stilettos and our fishnets with our eyeliner and our rouge, all the typical stuff that brings fellas together.”
About jamming together, the guitarist added:
“No. Why would we do that? Let’s see. We could be at an Irish pub somewhere laughing our a*ses off or we could be working on writing some new music. Hmmmm. I think we’ll be at the Irish pub!
“Seriously, man. There was no time to jam. They live in Texas. I was out in California. Whenever we got together it was just to have a good time. […]
“When we started hanging out, of course, we drank, but most of the time drinking with Dime would be over the phone. We talked on the phone all the time for several hours just drinking away.
“We’d make each other cry, we’d be laughing so hard. But every time we got together it was always hilarious, nothing but pure comedy. And sometimes we caused mayhem.”
