Anselmo said some unfortunate things in the press, which is a more recent and public manifestation of whatever conflict may have existed between them. MTV News went into it a tiny bit earlier this week.
In the cover story of the latest issue of the English magazine Metal Hammer, Anselmo, in an interview conducted long before Darrell's death, called the guitarist "a "shallow, stupid man," and added "he deserves to be beaten severely."
The singer's comments were in response to Darrell's implications that Anselmo was on heroin, and that his singing was suffering as a result. "He would attack me, vocally," Anselmo said in the article. "And just knowing that he was so much smaller than me, I could kill him like a f---in' piece of vapor, you know, he would turn into vapor."

Originally posted by BigDaddyLocoI heard Phil was asked not to attend the funeral by Dimebag's family. I know that Phil is a little off, but was the falling out between the two?
Creative differences, a music industry term for: 4 grown men don't like each other when they are on the same bus for 10 years.
From what I read there was a growing rift since the Steel album, Phil began to think Dime and Vinny were catering to the mainstream, and the Abbots have been concerned about Phil's on again off again heroin use (He was pronounced dead for 5 minutes before a show back in 96.)
As bitchfactor noted, there was alot of shit being thrown in the media, and what she quoted may have well been THE factor in Phil not being allowed, but I've heard from a few sources that, among friends, both sides spoke highly of a reunion.
