Avenged Sevenfold singer M.Shadows says Zakk Wylde is the perfect guitarist for the Pantera reunion tour.
Pantera, in fact, has announced a reunion tour with Charlie Benante on drums, who takes the place of Vinnie Paul Abbott, who passed away in 2018 and Zakk Wylde who takes the place of Dimebag Darrell Abbott, who was killed in 2004 during a concert.
M.Shadows wrote on Twitter: “Irregardless of our personal feelings, it seems that this @Pantera reunion reminds us that life is fragile and short. We live in an era where Phil and Rex can still go out there and perform the songs and soon that time will pass too. Enjoy it while you can. Looking forward.”
When a follower pointed out that there are rumors that Zakk will stand in for Dimebag, M.Shadows responded: “I hope so… perfect fit and a friend for Dime. What a great tribute.”
