Or how about The Doors?
This is a pointless exercise. And I'm a huge fan of the original Pantera. Thanks for keeping Metal alive during some lean, terrible years!!!
Key members of bands that just happen to be singers. In Pantera, the key members just happen to be the guitarist, drummer, and singer.I guess they/we mean Dime's charisma and presence were as important as vocalists', don't you think he was kinda co-frontman in Pantera, just like Van Halen?
He can barely talk for fuck's sake. There is no way that he'll sound at all decent. They recently did a Pantera tribute set (I dreaded where that was going) and Phil sounded like ass.I just really hope Phil is practicing. He sounded like dog shit live in the later Pantera years.
Not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, it's Zakk Wylde. Obviously he's no slouch and can play. But he's learning Pantera songs not just some 3 chord cover band songs with an easy bridge turn around and no solos. Zakk learned all that Randy stuff which isn't a walk in the park but it's still not Dime's riffs/solos. Some of the Pantera riffs can be a little trickier then they sound and the solos too. I don't want to hear his "version" of the song. I want him to nail it which I'm not sure he will be able to do. Will he be close? Probably. But having pinch harmonics everywhere and having the solos be "mostly" correct are not what I'm into. If this is suppose to be a tribute then play the songs right. In the video below when he's done "I'm Broken", the solo is mostly correct but the timing is a little off in spots and some phrasing isn't right. Nit-picky, I know, but as a huge Dime fan I don't want to hear that. Maybe I'm wrong and he learns it note for note. It's not like he has to learn Dream Theater or Animals As Leaders songs.
