Phil Anselmo open to collaborating with Zakk Wylde on Dimebag tribute

Phil Anselmo has said that he would definitely be open to collaborating with Zakk Wylde on a tribute to Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell.

It follows Wylde’s comments last year that he would like to fill in for Dimebag in a Pantera reunion in order to honour his friend.

Speaking to Artisan News, Anselmo said: ““If Zakk and I ever collaborated, if we wanted to write an homage to Dimebag together, that would be one thing and I would definitely be up for that. But not for his death, I would prefer to write a song that celebrated his life.

“I don’t think there’s any tribute in his death. I find it to be a more morose time of year for me.”

Dimebag was shot and killed while onstage with his band, Damageplan, in Columbus, Ohio, in December 2004.

Zakk Wylde’s band, Black Label Society, and Phil Anelmo’s band, Down, are currently on tour together in the USA. Anselmo joined Wylde on stage last week to sing a cover version of Pantera’s “I’m Broken”, from 1994’s Far Beyond Driven album.

Far Beyond Driven was recently remastered and re-released to coincide with it’s 20th anniversary.
