VINNIE PAUL: 'How Does PANTERA Get Back Together Without DIMEBAG? It's Never Gonna Happen'

France's L'Enôrme TV conducted an interview with former PANTERA and current HELLYEAH drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott at this year's Hellfest, which was held June 21-23 in Clisson, France. You can now watch the chat below.

On late SLAYER guitarist Jeff Hanneman:

Vinnie: "We all miss Jeff. Jeff was a great friend and we had some very good times with him. I just wish the SLAYER boys the best. And hopefully Jeff is in a better place."

On whether any other previously unreleased recordings from his brother, late PANTERA and DAMAGEPLAN guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott, will ever see the light of day:

Vinnie: "I'm so busy with HELLYEAH right now, and it's really my main focus. Whenever I find the time and I think the time is right, I'll definitely find a way to put it out and get it out for people to hear, because, definitely, my brother still has a lot of great works that people haven't heard, and I definitely want people to hear it."

On the possibility of a PANTERA reunion with Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE) filling in for Dimebag on guitar:

Vinnie: "How does PANTERA get back together without Dimebag Darrell? That's the bottom line. It's never gonna happen."
