full in bloom: Your thoughts on the Pantera reunion or celebration or whatever it’s going to be.

dUg Pinnick:

I have to say it this way, it’s none of my f***ing business. And whatever happens, I will be there, and I will support them.

full in bloom: Do you still talk to those guys?

Yeah. I have not talked to anybody since this has been announced. Even Charlie (Benante) and Zakk (Wylde), I know everybody, and I don’t want to. It’s none of my business. I really feel that. Even if I had an opinion, it doesn’t matter. It’s almost like it’s just something for everybody to gossip about. Actually, it’s great publicity, for sure. But I’m not there. I wasn’t in the room when they talked about it. I’m not around any of them in that capacity where I’m in the business side of it. So, that’s the way I look at it. I just take the Fifth.
