PANTERA recently performed in Budapest, Hungary on May 31, 2023 and Dimebag Darrell’s fill-in guitarist Zakk Wylde has purportedly been busted again using a backing track to perform the trademark “Squeals” of fallen heavy metal guitar hero Dimebag.
Even the first few days of ticket sales were enough for the re-united legendary American metal band to sold out the Barba Negra for the show will be held on May 30. Due to this incredibly high interest for the 2023 Budapest show, Pantera announces the second concert for May 31, 2023 in the Barba Negra!
YouTube user Sid Randall left a comment on the video seen below:
At 1:22 Zakk Wylde is clearly playing along to a backing track piped in of Dimebag performing the song off the original studio version. Here is a link to Dime playing the same song during concert but clearly using a DIgitech Whammy pedal! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6ZJrJM1yp4 Y’all have been hoodwinked!
The only way this song can be performed live for real is by the guitar player on the stage using a whammy pedal, and anyone else doing it without a pedal is using a backing track.
You cannot have two separate people playing the guitar and whammy pedal. This is reality.
Pantera is lying to the fans saying a roadie is backstage stepping on the whammy pedal. It is all smoke n mirrors. Nothing but a rock n roll illusion.
Earlier this May at Pantera’s first U.S. gig in over two decades, Wylde got accused of using backing track for the song “Becoming”
