Today is the one year anniversay of Dime's death and I just wanted to post in memoriam. I miss him and his music. He was one of the truly great guitarists and he was a great person. Long live his music and memory.

RIP Dime.

RIP Dime - that guy was an amazing guitarist and seemed like a down to earth guy who just like to jam and have a good time. It's hard to believe that was a year ago.

Personally, I was never into that whole genre of music, but I can appreciate talent. If you would like a nice tribute song check out Cross Canadian Ragweed's album Garage, there's a song on there called Dimebag. It's quite good. MJD

For a good Dime tribute, listen to "In This River" off of the latest BLS album. Oh, and MTV actually has a really good tribute on their website Remembering Dime

Mayhem was an outstanding individual a fearless bodyguard.

He had worked for a previous band I was in on ocassion.

RIP. Such an amazing talent and energy in him, very sad and angering that he had to be taken away from us so violently..especially in front of his own brother and bandmates

I couldn't imagine what that was like for Vinnie. Such a shame. I saw Pantera a few times and man... when they were touring for Reinventing the Steel, and the opened up with "Hellbound" I thought I'd need earplugs. They put on the best show I had seen. I will never forget it!

Damn I miss Dime!

Watch it go!!!!!!!!

frustrating part is that the shooter did this for one reason....he thought Dimebag killed Pantera. I dont want to get into band-politics but we all know Phil Anselmo let Pantera die because he was too busy with his shitty side projects and shooting up heroin

I agree with most of that though I really like the first DOWN CD. Good stuff there. It is a shame about Pantera not staying together.

Down was alright I agree, but super joint ritual and the other ones? Come on Phil, that shit couldn't hold a candle to Pantera

What other ones? His only side-projects were SJR and Down. And by the way, Down fucking owns.

There were a few others, I dont think they lasted long, necrophagia? might of been one, can't remember. I still think he should of stuck to what he did best, and devote all energy and time to that.

The only reason I know who he is, my idol Eddie VH showed up to some tribute to him drunk-as-a-skunk, cut off Zak Wyldes (sp?) tribute, and made a total a$$ of himself

I ran into him at a guitar show when I was a teen and he seemed like a really cool, down to earth dude. He took the time to sign a guitar for me and showed me a few licks. He even explianed how he did those crazy hi-pitched wails on Cemetary Gates and This Love.

Rip Dimebag. I knew Mayhem and I was sick to my stomach when I found out he was dead. That man was a really good person and it is horrible that he died that way.

Your right, they do! I really like Kirk and Pepper's blend. I met all of the guys from Down in Cincy a few years back. I am also into COC and Crowbar. Kirk is a trip, I've bullshitted with him a couple of times. One drunk mutherfucker!

Read an article in Guitar magazine that told a story about Dime doing this autograph signing session at a music store.
This one kid came up with his dad to get an autograph, and commented that he wanted to be a guitar player because of Darrell's influence.
He went on to say that his dad was saving up to buy him a guitar for Christmas...but he had been laid off work, and would likely not be able to swing it that year.
Darrell signed the kid an autograph, and told him to stick around after the session (He told him he had some T-shirts, and Pantera memorabilia for him, or something like that to make sure the kid hung around.)
When the autograph session was over...Darrell took the kid and his dad into the music store showroom, and hooked the kid up with a top of the line guitar, amp, accessories, and lessons.
Told him the next time he was in town, they were going to jam together.

BTW, He originally called himself "Diamond Darrell", but changed it to "Dimebag" because he was told it sounded cooler...not because he was a dope fiend.
