Dimebag Darrell

Of course how could I not say something about the death of Dimebag Darrell? I was not a fan of Damageplan, or post-Far Beyond Drive Pantera, but the dude was ok in my book. More importantly, Vulgar Display Of Power was one of the greatest albums ever. I still remember buying it in 1993. I was in New York City with a few friends for the day. I had heard bits and pieces of them on Headbangers Ball (this was when Rikki Rachtman was hosting) and figured it was something worth looking into. So in NYC I went into Tower Records or something and bought it. I can still remember getting home that night, sitting in my living room and listening to the CD in its entirety. Not surprisingly, that CD was pretty much all I listened to for the next several weeks. Fucking genius. Although I respect Dimebag's recent musical output less than that of Phil Anselmo, as a person, I respect Dimebag much more. Phil's always around preaching, whining, whatever. Fuck that. Darrel was all about his guitar. No bullshit. R.I.P. Dimebag!

They said the shooter would listen to pantera to pump himself up before football games. This is what happens when stupid jocks get into metal. This jerk took a life 100x times better than his own. He should of just stayed home and offed himself. If there is a hell I hope he is burning and getting rear beatd by multi-dicked demons

Agree with that most def! Phil is a junkie, always will be. He thinks he's too good for Dime, Vinnie, and Pantera, well ok, the Down & Supjoint stuff is ill, but still man, that was a low blow to be talking shit about the ex-band mates...i mean, why, you're doing your own thing, so are they, leave it the hell alone man, go smoke your dope in peace, why make enemies. Because he just left, thought he was better that is why, which is not true. I hope he does feel like shit about being distant w
