The Philip/Vinnie/Rita soap opera gets renewed

Look, it sucks that Dimebag got killed, it really does. But the blaming game going on between Vinnie and Phil is getting pretty old. I’ve never met Dime, but I’m pretty sure he would not like to see this sad show.

Another Dimebash went by, and instead of the remaining members of Pantera to be there and honor Dime the way he should be honored, they’re still ‘not talking to each other.’

Props to Rita and Phil for trying to fix this… Vinnie should quit being so stubborn, Dime deserves fucking better.

Everybody still has resentment towards each other about things in the past. It’s easy to direct your anger at the wrong people. Philip didn’t murder Darrell and [he] would never have wanted that. […] Yeah, I resent Philip for becoming a jackass and a drug addict, and I’m a little sketchy about trusting him all the way yet. But some of the things he’s emailed and some of the thing he’s said — that’s the Philip I know, the ‘stronger than all.’ There’s always room in my heart for him — I love him.

Way to go, Rita. Vinnie tried making Phil look like the bad guy, but all he’s doing right now is making himself the villain in all of this. Just fucking forget whatever happened in the past and make Dimebash 2012 the celebration it should have been — with a Pantera reunion.



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/


Rita got interviewed

I don’t really like commenting on musician’s personal lives, cause I don’t actually know them, so it’s not really my place — but I do it anyway, because why wouldn’t I?

Vinnie and Phil haven’t spoken to each other since Pantera split up. After Dimebag’s death, Vinnie blamed Phil for it, which is fucking stupid. But nowadays Rita, Dime’s girlfriend, is forgiving Phil and is urging Vinnie to do it as all.

To be honest, I do agree that Dime would have probably forgiven Phil if he was still alive. I really doubt he wanted any animosity between Vinnie, Rex and Phil, so they should all kiss and make up and honor Dime together. That’s how I see it.

Check the interview above to see Rita agreeing with me. Can’t blame her, I’m awesome.

An 8 Minute video on the deaths of Dimebag and Paul Gray

Norwegian TV show “Lydverket” (web site) aired a mini-documentary about the deaths of “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott (PANTERA, SLIPKNOT) and Paul Gray (SLIPKNOT). During the eight-minute segment, which can be viewed below (with English subtitles), Vinnie Paul Abbott (PANTERA, HELLYEAH) and Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT, STONE SOUR) spoke openly about how they dealt with the losses of their bandmembers and friends, and in Vinnie’s case, his brother.

Usually, I really don’t like to just copy-and-paste news from another source, Blabbermouth in this case, but I don’t have a better description for the video myself, so I just did it now.

I’ve read and seen a lot about the death of Dimebag Darrell but I thought the video was pretty powerful and touching so it’s definitely worth a watch. Do so after the jump.
