      When Zakk talked about metal guitarists, early in this conversation. I felt that he left out an important piece of the puzzle, in the early 90's. Though He was not in the mainstream, John Petrucci was, quietly, setting new standards that people only recognize, now. Later in the interview, he put John Petrucci, in the conversation, and in the right place in the story of metal.

      Being a bass player and original Pantera member his input has probably been priceless to capturing the Pantera sound.
      Being the bass player him and the drummer had to be a tight rythm section and the bass is a guitar so he had to be in tune with Dimebag and compliment musically what Dimebag was doing on guitar .

      @CharlesWillisBonsai agreed BUT , the abbot brothers were at it for 10+yrs before Phil joined and couldn't seal a record deal. Phil joined and brought a sense of idgaf attitude that allowed them to get away from the cookie cutter spandex bullshit. I mean the abbot Brothers didn't even know who slayer was back then. You can hear Phil's immediate influence on power metal, yeah they still had that glam tone to their music but after Phil joined he gave the music teeth, Even on Power metal you could hear Phil's influence. Let's face it w/o Phil pantera would still be doing van Halen covers in a backwoods Texas bar somewhere.

My old bandmate used to own a small record shop in town and had scheduled Zakk to do an in-store meet and greet. When the time arrived Zakk couldn't get a ride, so my bandmates and I had the pleasure of going to pick him up... ( from the Alrosa-Villa of all places) this was back when he had first started BLS. We got there, picked him up, burned some and proceeded to have a great time. After we got him back to the venue my bass player said "My god, I can't believe how bad he smells"... lol. I guess he thought life on the road is totally glamorous. Zakk was so cool to all of us and he's right... If music is what you want to do... "You better love the music because the music doesn't always love you" you have to be willing to get in the trenches and live like an animal. I still have the autographed picture hanging up to this day. Good dude, Great times.

    i saw the original Pantera at OZZFEST, Phoenix AZ 2000. the area in front of the stage just kept swelling as it got nearing to their stage time. The sun was just getting low. they walked out and plugged in with no talking, no bullshit. It was like a sneak attack and that first chord smashed me before they even seemed to have a strap settled. That mass in the pit just exploded and security broke and ran. not even the National guard could have stopped them them from doing whatever it was they wanted to do. man i remember me and my girl laughing so hard! i am 58 now and seen at least 200 major shows and countless gigs. i played quite a few myself but that was the only time i ever saw security just give up. certainly the only time after one fucking note! baaahhhhh!!!!!

When I was going to the bathroom I literally ran into Vinnie Paul. It was like running into a comic book character, I couldn't believe it. But many rock stars hang out there. I just said, "Vinnie??" "Yeah man" "Thank you for the music" I didn't have the heart to ask for an autograph, this was just after Dimebag was taken from us and felt completely inappropriate. I could still see the pain in the mans eyes.

Try never having a benefactor to front you money, never having anyone to help you book shows, never having anyone to help you find an audio engineer. Having to front cash for everything. Having to front cash for a broken down fan. Record companys do want you to succeed (except in cases like when Exodus got signed to capital, mishandlings, stuff like that). And life would be much cooler if your boss was a record company exec rather than a foreman on a construction yard.
