Guitarist Gus G. was recently interviewed by Anne Erickson of Audio Ink Radio. where he talked about Black Label Society’s guitarist, Zakk Wylde, saying Wylde was the right choice to step in for Dimebag Darrell in Pantera.
About this topic, Gus G. said the following:
“That has been the biggest news in metal the past year, or this year. What my thoughts are? I think it’s great that they’ve done this and they’re bringing Pantera music to either the younger generation or people that never got a chance to see them even back in the day. I never got to see Pantera back in the day. So, I definitely will go to a show if I have the opportunity, yes. […]
”That’s the perfect lineup to go out and do that. Obviously, Zakk had a really good relationship with Dimebag; they were really close. In my mind, and I think in pretty much every fan’s mind out there, that was the right choice and the only choice, the only guy that could step in and do it justice.
”And all the videos I’ve seen, they sound slamming; they sound killer. And it’s a great show. I love the lights, the pyro, all the stuff they have. It’s a big rock show, man. It’s great.”
