Anselmo talks about Vinnie’s ‘redneck hatred’

Phil Anselmo knows how to patch things up with an old friend. It’s common knowledge that saying they’re terrified of you and that they have ‘redneck hatreds’ is gonna bring them all back to you in a split second.

So Phil got interviewed recently, and I simply copy-pasted what I read on Blabbermouth because it just makes my work easier, and it’s not like people don’t already know I’m a ‘hack blogger,’ so let’s get right to it.

Vinnie Paul’s closed-door policy when it comes to me, that’s something he’s gonna have to ride around on his shoulders the rest of his fucking life. I know this: My door is always open, and always has been open — always has been fucking open. And it is a little frustrating when you have a loose end and you’re trying to tighten everything up. But you can’t make everybody fucking happy all of the time — you can’t.

So, Vinnie Paul, he has no effect on my life at all — no effect at all. Good job, I’ll say to Vince — you’ve hurt me. And you keep on hurting me. Great job! Where is it getting you? That’s my question to him. My door has always been wide open, and I’ll leave it at that, because I think everybody else knows the rest. It’s fucking pretty A-B-C simple. He doesn’t want to…

There is a fear in him of me. That motherfucker is so fucking terrified of me. But somewhere within that terror, somewhere within this invented — and I do say ‘invented’ — scapegoat fucking slapping redneck hatred of his, there is a love bigger than any of that fucking shit, and that’s why he’s acting the way he’s acting. So that’s that.

Wow, settle down there Phil. If I wanted to read a novel written by you, I’d pre-order your autobiography.

I do think blaming Phil for Dime’s death is a bit like blaming a surfer for a hurricane. But I remember a time when Dimebag was alive and a certain vocalist was trying to jab both him and Vinnie in the press. But on the other hand, I am positive Dimebag would have forgiven Phil, because he just seemed like a nice guy.

Why am I making assumptions about people I don’t know and scenarios I’ve never been a part of? Because I’m lame, so maybe I should just mind my own fucking business.

Pantera rules, though. \m/
