||PHIL ANSELMO TALKS UP PANTERA REUNION HOPES
29th March 2013
In a brand new interview with Brazil's Wikimetal, Phil Anselmo once again offers an olive branch to Vinnie Paul with regard to a Pantera reunion.
"Honestly — and I've spoken with Zakk (Wylde) about (a potential Pantera reunion) as well — we're very aware of the public perception out there, but honestly, until I speak with Vinnie Paul, which has not yet happened, and it doesn't look like it's going to happen, nothing can happen. Honestly, I tell you, my phone is on the hook, my e-mail is wide open, my door is wide open. I would love to talk with Vince. Honestly, if there were no more bad feelings and we could talk, and we could come to an understanding, I think it would mean not only a lot for me and myself — it would mean the world to me — but it would mean a great deal to the fans out there as well. I think people don't want to see this arguing anymore. It's time for some peace. It's time for some brotherhood. And honestly, we should be setting an example instead of being the opposite. And I'll just say that my door is wide open, and so far, Vinnie's door is closed, and it's a shame."

You can hear the above quote around an hour into the interview. Sadly the only comment from Vinnie Paul on the subject is "it aint gonna happen".
