Pantera kick off their reunion/tribute/whatever tour in the next two weeks, which means the focus is now even *more *on the groove legends’ string of shows, which unites classic members Rex Brown and Phil Anselmo with Zakk Wylde and Charlie Benante.

In an interview with Primordial Radio (transcribed by Blabbermouth), Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian discussed his bandmate’s participation in the shows and whether or not he thinks it’s a reunion. All in all, nothing surprising about what Ian has to say.
