Chris Jericho Joins Pantera On Stage For “Walk” 

Just prior to the reformed Pantera’s debut, FOZZY frontman and AEW star Chris Jericho talked with Ireland’s Overdrive and shared his thoughts on the band’s comeback and tour celebrating the legacy of the band and the late “Vinnie Paul” Abbott and “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott. 

“I think it’s great,” he said. “It’s amazing. I was very good friends with Vinnie and I think that, in retrospect, both Vinnie and Dime would be very happy about this. I think that a world with Pantera music in it, is better than a world with no Pantera music in it. I think they got the right guys to help out, with Charlie and Zakk, and when it comes to a whole generation of kids that never got to see those songs being performed live, this is their chance, and it’s gonna be amazing.”

He continued: “At the end of the day, it’s about music and sharing the experience of great music amongst people. I don’t believe that those songs should be locked away and not performed in a grand setting. It’s time for everybody to experience some kind of connection with that music again, be it for the very first time or perhaps just one more time. Either way, it’s gonna be amazing.”

On Monday, Pantera played in Jericho’s hometown of Tampa, Florida, and Jericho joined the band onstage for a performance of what is perhaps their most well-known song, “Walk.” Fan-filmed footage of the song can be viewed below.
