Philip Anselmo spoke about the possibility of a Pantera reunion with Zakk Wylde filling in for the late great Dimebag Darrell, and… it looks like a lot of counseling is going to be required first.

The idea of Wylde, well known for his many years as Ozzy Osbourne‘s guitarist, as well as for his own exploits in Black Label Society, filling in for his old drinking buddy is both an interesting and a blasphemous one, depending on who you ask and on what day.

But could this actually happen? Not so fast, Anselmo tells WGRD in Grand Rapids, Mich. First of all, Anselmo and drummer Vinnie Paul, who is also Dime’s brother, have not spoken since the guitarist was murdered in 2004.

Anselmo addressed that fact, saying that the reunion is “an interesting question. Well, look, before anything like that could possibly happen, Vince and I would have to actually be in the same room, we’d have to sit down, hash out whatever differences, demons… whatever… we’d have to hash it all out.”

As for Wylde-as-replacement? Anselmo’s not exactly feeling that that idea without some heavy duty discussion and hashing out, either. “And as far as Zakk Wylde goes, I’m not so sold on all that, because I think he and I have to sit down and hash some crap out. That day has not come yet, and [when] that day comes, I can comment further on it. As of right now, it’s just talk,” the singer stated.
