Chilling to think it was also the anniversary of John Lennon's death too.

Im from Dallas and so was the band... I didn't know Darrell but knew many people who did... he was apparently a very down to earth, cool guy. I can't understand this sort of thing... its just... utterly senseless. Now club security is gonna go insane... i'll get patted down at shows and treated like a criminal just for being a music fan... because of some loon.

Its a sad day for music fans. Even if you werent a Pantera/Damageplan/ Dimebag Darrell fan.

The first thing I thought was, how sad it was for that to happen and for all those people to see it.

The second thought was just what you just said Marv. We had the Station night club fire up here and that changed the night club sceen forever (for the better) but this is going to change it for the worst. I know extra security is good to protect everyone BUT, security should have done it's job!!!!!!! Now it's gonna take forever to get into a show.

R.I.P - to the four people needlesslly killed trying to enjoy life!!!

There is a nice tribute to Dimebag Darrell throughout this months Guitar World magazine (March 2005) issue.

So sad, after reading about him. I've even recently download some Pantera and Damageplan from iTunes. Good music, but also a tragic way to discover new music.

Didn't realize he was buried with Eddie Van Halen's original black-and-yellow guitar.

I've got a lot of good ideas. Trouble is... most of them suck!

Me neither, but from what I've heard, he musta been a really cool guy. I heard a story about how he was doing a signing session and this kid and his dad came up, and Dime asked if he played, and the kid said no because his family could'nt afford one. So after the signing(because he didn't want to embarrese the kid's dad) he asked the kid and his dad to stay after, and Dime bought the kid the most expensive guitar pack in the store and signed it, and told the kid to practise up, because when he came back they were gonna jam..
R.I.P. Dimebag... :cry:

ironic for me that dimebag was buried with an evh guitar since the two shared one huge fundamental difference in philosophy. Whereas evh criticizes people who aren't necessarily good Dimebag never said a bad thing about another player. Dimebag said as long as it is live it is good even if the players aren't very profficent. the fact that they are playing, are having fun, and that it is live was always good enough. I wish more people were as open minded as he was. I don't think enough people realize how genuine and passionate he was. For nost I imagine it is difficult to see past the rebel flags, army fatigues and cursing but he was such a good guy

Agree with you 100% there Antny....EVH may have been a legend, but for me anyone who picks a guitar up (or ANY other instrument for that matter!) and gets up in front of the public has a right to be heard....

I never heard of Dimebag, but from the tributes I've read, a lot of people liked he must have done something right!!!!!

A senseless waste, like so many others....

I got to see Dimebag perform at Red Rocks here in Colorado years ago. He was amazing. Me and my friend were the next best thing to being on stage that night too. Since my friend had MD and was in a wheelchair we were moved to the front row, beyond the security. There were about 7 or 8 more disabled groups of people with us and we got invited back stage for autographs 'n' stuff after the concert by Dimebag. We got a guitar pick from him at least. Me and my friend didn't have time 'cause of his lame CNA (???). My best friend passed away in 2002.

Strange thing for me was that I dusted off my guitar and started practicing again days before he died. I was and still am saddened by his death.

R.I.P. Dimebag... and thank you.

Also I feel that John Lee Hooker hasn't got enough respect since his passing too.
