Benante said SiriusXMX “Trunk Nation with Eddie Trunk” about how he plans to approach PANTHER concert: “I can’t do this as a drummer from anthrax because it would be a completely different sound.

wilde said he had a similar mindset. “You approach it the same as when I play with Ozzy“, he said. “Obviously I have to learn [Randy] Rhoadsthings and I have to learn JakeX [E. Lee] things and when I did [BLACK] SATURDAY things, you study it and do it as true as you can. Charliegotta learn everything Winnieparts. You approach it like you’re in a cover band. When we do ZAK SATURDAY things”, referring to his BLACK SABBATH cover band: “I don’t start changing words halfway through “War Pigs”. You learn songs, that’s what you do.”

I love Rex. And he would be the same. We are brothers forever. So playing together on stage or performing together on some shows is not excluded. It could happen.”

April 2021 Rex said Eonmusic what they Philip continue to receive offers for PANTHER tribute tour. “But if there aren’t other guys in the band, it won’t sound the same,” he said. “If we ever did something like this, it would have to be accurate, otherwise I wouldn’t have done it. It would be a tribute.”
