Listen, I know. This is probably the billionth time we’ve shared someone’s opinion about the upcoming Pantera reunion/tribute/whatever you want to call it to help you sleep better at night, but Kirk Windstein of Crowbar and — most notably — the supergroup Down that Phil Anselmo fronts chimed in.

During a recent interview with the Talk Louder podcast, originally transcribed by Blabbermouth, Windstein told music journalist “Metal Dave” Glessner and Dangerous Toys vocalist Jason McMaster that he’s known about the plans to take Pantera back on the road for a while now. And while he’s in favor of bringing Zakk Wylde and Charlie Benante to fill in for the late Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul, respectively, he understands were some fans may take issue with the whole thing.

Ever since it was announced that Pantera would be brought back from the dead with Wylde and Benante as fill ins, the metal community has been torn. On one hand, you’ve got fans who are excited to finally get to hear those Pantera songs live for either the first time or the first time in 20 years. On the other hand, you have fans that hate the idea since it’s either a “cash grab” or “hurts the legacy of the band” or claim it’s not Pantera without Dime or Vinnie.

To that end, Windstein said he’s noticed a growing trend at shows that makes it seem like there are more people in the first camp than in the second.
