Dime we will all miss you but you are still living strong in all of our hearts.
First time you saw Dime play live?

It was 1992 for me, on the Vulgar Display of Power tour. He came out on stage, wailing those harmonics, and then the band kicked in to Domination. The next time I saw Pantera play was in 1999, with Black Sabbath on their Reunion tour.

Dimebag’s Requiem by Victor Lillo December 11, 2004
Howling like dogs, the guitars roar;
Growling, they look to devour.
Cursing gutturals of a poet’s lyric ride above the roar;
Words of wrath consume all who hear.
The sin of their mouth and the words of their lips lay a trap for the lion on stage;
A Gale blows into the room where high decibels absorb thunder.
Alrosa Villa begins to embrace a sonic flood;
Wave upon wave pour from celestion paper cones.
Sound spills out into the chill of an Ohio December;
Six steel strings attract a pent up energy in a storm clouded mind.
A D-tuned lightning rod takes the brunt of the Gale wind;
Five blasts of 130 decibels are pounded out on stage.
An eerie quiet welcomes the room as the sound of a dime can be heard hitting the floor;
The music goes quiet as the ripple wave of a fall causes a pause.
“What is life? A vapour that appears and then vanishes away?
What shall be on the morrow?”

A tributevideo I found on another forum.
You will always be in my heart man. I saw you play live a bunch of times, and you were it. I've never seen anyone else play like you in my life, and i know i never will again. You are the reason for the creation of so many musicians, you influenced me in so many ways.
So many emotions, but i'll end it here by saying have fun with Hendrix and the rest of those guys. I hope one day i'll get to hear your guitar thundering again. PEACE!!
on Sat Dec 11, 2004 11:17 pm
though you were ripped away from us way to soon, I'd like to thank you for all the music, the energy, the joy, the warmth you gave to us. These are very hard times for all of us, we miss you a lot, but the memory of you will help us carry our grief.
You've always been a huge source of inspiration for me and I'll keep playing my Deans with tremendous pride to remember and honour you. I had hoped to see and meet you on one of the coming DOA events, but somebody decided otherwise...
You will never be forgotten and you'll continue to live in our hearts and in our music.

I love it!

As I'm sure he is for many like me, Dime is the reason I play guitar and the reason I picked up a Dean... His groundbreaking talent was mached only by his love of the art of guitar, and in this feild he was king. It may seem silly but I always dreamed of meeting him, just to be in his presence, just to stand next to inspiration itself.
You were a true musician, a true artist, a living GOD! your spirit will live on in every riff, in every solo, in every Dean and in every one of us who understands what it is to be a guitarist regardless of genre. Every time I hold my guitar from this moment forward I will be playing for you Double D....BROTHER!!!
You will be missed dearly...
I hope one day I get the chance to jam with you.
Rest in Peace.

Vinnie Paul issues statement on his Brother
Vinnie Paul Issues Statement On His Brother
on Mon Dec 13, 2004 9:46 am
Added Sunday, December 12
Added By: EvilG ( www.metal-rules.com
DAMAGEPLAN/ex-PANTERA drummer Vinnie Paul has released a statement to the media following the tragic death of his brother and band-mate Dimebag Darrell Abbott this past Wednesday, December 8th:
"With all his greatness and accomplishments on the guitar, Dime will be missed more for his giving personality, charisma, caring for others, love and most of all his Heart! Twice as big as the state of TEXAS! Dime gave it all everyday to each and every one of us and our lives have forever been hollowed without him. Thanks to all of you for reaching out to us in this time of our immeasurable loss. Rest In Peace brother Dime."
Paul also commented on Jeffrey Thompson, a bodyguard for the band, who was also killed in the incident: "Jeffrey 'Mayhem' Thompson was not just a true part of the Damageplan family, but part of the whole Dallas music scene," the statement said. "He was friend to all, with a great personality. He bent over backward to help us all with his trademark phrases like 'What can I do for you sir?' and 'Coming up!'
"Bottom line: You've got Jimi Hendrix, you've got Eddie Van Halen, you've got Randy Rhoads and you've got Dimebag Darrell. His influence will be felt forever. And he was the most genuine, kindest guy you ever met. Dime would give you the shirt off his back. The good Lord put him down here to whoop some ass and make everybody happy, and now He needed him, so He took him. I'm sitting in Dime's garage right now — I'm down here to take care of his family, to keep everybody together — and I'm waiting for him to walk through the door. I'm looking at pictures of him on the wall, pictures of us hanging together, and it just crushes me inside. I've never had a brother, but he was as close to blood as possible. My love for him is unconditional and beyond forever." - Zakk Wylde

First I want to send out my condolences to all the family and friends who where touched by this hate filled tragedy.
Dime was more than a GREAT Guitarist, He was a Great Person. He was giving and he really cared about his fans. He would go so far as to pitch in to by someone a first guitar if he saw that the person didn't have enough and was going to have to lay it away.
I mention this because I have a son who is a guitarist, my first reaction when I heard was " I don't want you playing on stag anymore" His was"That's It I Quit" after I really thought about it I realizes, That would be the last thing Dime would want. To those of you who have had Dime touch your life, It is a gift take what Dime gave you and pass it on to someone else. In that way he will always live on. Knowing him was a GIFT and I will miss him.

Why Darrell Was Cool
on Mon Dec 13, 2004 4:46 pm
We've got a Canadian website called ChartAttack.com that have said instead of dwelling on the tragedy they'd rather salute the metal master. Here's their 10 reasons why Dimebag Darrell was cool.
1. Dimebag Darrell was considered one of metal's most masterfully shredding guitarists. He put out the book Dimebag Darrell's Riffer Madness to teach people bitchin' riffery and was always willing to help fans learn how to play his songs.
2. Darrell's old band Pantera were one of the most relentless, genuine and powerful metal bands in history. They're perhaps behind only Slayer, Sabbath and pre-haircut Metallica in the lineage of metal royalty. Darrell's shredding had much to do with that.
3. Pantera's Vulgar Display Of Power (1992) ranked as the #20 album in author Martin Popoff's book The Top 500 Heavy Metal Albums Of All-Time. It was beaten out only by albums from the likes of Sabbath, Ozzy, Maiden, Dio, Metallica, Priest and Megadeth. In short, the biggest of the big.
4. Back in '94, when grunge and alternative were king, Pantera gave the world a giant screw-you in the form of the album Far Beyond Driven. It debuted at #1 on the Billboard album charts, proving that true metal had a strong and loyal following, which remains true to this day.
5. Darrell and his brother Vinnie Paul, the drummer for Pantera and Damageplan, were tight with the tough guys of the National Hockey League. To the point where the Dallas Stars even celebrated a Stanley Cup victory at Vinnie Paul's house which involved the Cup getting tossed in a swimming pool.
6. After Pantera dissolved in an ugly way, Darrell and Vinnie Paul continued on, joining up with Patrick Lachman and Bob Zilla to form Damageplan. Real fans accepted the new group's sound and approach with dignity.
7. True to the rock 'n' roll life, Darrell and Vinnie were co-owners of the Dallas strip club The Clubhouse. The policy: $20 cover, you bring your own booze. The club was a fame magnet, attracting sports stars, celebs and fellow touring musicians.
8. It's not so much "cool" as it is a sign of respect, but Dimebag's death will be considered by many metal fans the biggest tragedy in the genre since Ozzy Osbourne's ace guitarist Randy Rhodes died in a plane crash in 1982.
9. When Damageplan toured Canada in May, he let it be known that no matter what band he'd be in, he was a metal lifer.
"We never thought about quitting music — this sh!t runs too deep in our veins," he said. "It’s what I was put on the earth to do and I don’t know what else I’d do with myself if it wasn’t this. We’ll be doing this until we’re physically incapable. We love interacting with the fans, hanging out with the bands we tour with, getting @#%$@!!& up, going to different tittie bars and seeing different towns — the whole package is great."
10. This is only the smallest of consolations, but when he went out at least he went out onstage, in front of a crowd of adoring fans and playing the music he loved. Rock on Dimebag.
"Getcha' Pull!" wherever you are, for all of us!
December 9th, 2004: Today, we have lost one of the most amazing guitar players in the world. A guitarist that comes along once in a lifetime and changes the whole tone and future of music and guitar playing. He will be so missed by me, any words to describe how I feel might not exist. It was a disgusting act by one demented, cowardly person that took away from us a tremendous talent and inspiration to us all. I never got to meet him, but I loved him and what he created for us. "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott will always live for me! I miss you already bro! Rip it up for me and continue on wherever you may be Dime! "Getcha Pull" for all of us! And to Vinnie, Rita and the Dime family, Be strong.
"Dimebag" Darrell Abbott

Magazine asks for ML Photos!! - Guitar Player Magazine -
Aaron Caplan of Guitar Player Magazine has contacted me about some photos of Brazillia Burst MLs or lightning painted ones, as mine are not the same Brazillia Burst as Dimebag's, maybe YOU guys can help!!!
Post pix of your Brazillia Burst MLs here and I'll direct him here to check them out. It'd be cool to have YOUR guitar in Guitar Player Magazine right?
Maybe post some pix of Dime's guitars and of Dime playing a Dean.
Now I don't know the copywrite issues, so please write down CLEARLY if it's YOUR guitar, and/or if YOU took the picture or not!!!!
I just wanted to pass along this beautiful tribute to "The Dime." It talks more about who he was than what he was, and I thought it fitting ... as the press doesn't really have a clue!
Dime enjoying life
on Tue Dec 14, 2004 7:25 pm
A dude from Syracuse posted this link on a local forum. It brought a smile to my face seeing Dime having a good time.
I will play this guitar always. I will not put it away. I will use it for maximum sonic domination. I wil never sell it. It will never leave me. It is my guitar but a part of you is inside it, too. And that is worth more than any dollar.
'59 & Dimebucker-Watch it go, catdaddy
Also, huge thanks to Dave at B&T for getting me the super hook-up on the case.
please repond to this icehole
1. Jesus preached tolerance, this douche obviously missed that
2. lacked style, dude you are ignorant
3. untalented, Dime was banned
from guitar comps by the time he was 16 cos he was to damn good
4.lacking emotional range, man obviously hasn't heard the second solo to Floods, or Hollow
5. hideously ugly, well that's just your opinion you opinionated bastard
6. heavy metal creates the mindset......, if that was the case, which I'm a firm believer that it wasn't, then why was there such a HUGE response to Dime's death? Surely if heavy metal turned people from mild mannered people into hideously ugly and intellectually incoherent then they would not have cared a jit. And IF it was the case, why haven't there been many more heavy metal murders.
THE REAL tragedy here is that the world lost not only an awesome artist, but a truly nice human being who was down to earth and willing to just hang out with his fans. Why did Dime have to go and not this hating man?
i'm 17 and i'm gonna write this man a letter he ain't NEVER gonna forget. I urge you to do the same.
I went to Darrell's memorial service
It was an amazing tribute to our fallen hero. I wouldn't be surprised if about 3 thousand of us came out there to pay our respects. The place was PACKED. Everyone was in high spirits with huge smiles on there faces as they filed in and picked their standing spots. Everyone was shaking hands and hugging, it was a beautiful sight. On the floor by the wings of the stage were big poster size versions of all the Guitar magazines that had Darrell on the cover, very cool. In front of the stage on the floor were 2 very special flower arrangements in the shape and motifs of the dimebolt and rebel ML's. The guitarist from Grim Reaper was the first celeb to speak and told some great stories. Next up Jerry Cantrell, Mike Inez, Pat Lachman, and Shawn Williams performed 2 songs to which the whole crowd sang along. Then out comes Zakk. Zakk was very emotional taking a few minutes between some stories to try and keep it together, it was very touching. Unfortunately it all went to hell the minute Eddie Van Halen stepped on stage. When he first came out the crowd was silent and all of a sudden a "HOLY SH|T" came out of the crowd courtesy of me. I think I saw him before everyone else. When he first came out I thought this was gonna be a REALLY cool experience, I mean come on it's EVH! I was so wrong. This guy comes out with a whole bottle of wine in his hand which I'm pretty sure was about empty by the time he went on judging by his speech and clumsiness. Everytime Zakk would get going into a story EVH would yank the mic out of his hands and make fun of him or go on a tangent saying that they need to "EQ this GOLDARN' mic". Eventually Zakk did the right thing and yanked it away from him saying "Try to take this mic again motherf@#$%!" and went to the opposite end of the stage. When Zakk said his piece they left. After that something unexpected happened, Rex Brown came out. Man, Rex looked tore up. He was definately hitting the bottle that night and probably many of the nights before. He came out an emotional wreck trying very hard to find the words he wanted to use. He finished up very well saying "I wouldn't trade any of the moments I had with him for anything in this world. I love you, Darrell." Touching would be an understatement. Then Vincent came out. He grabbed the cardboard cutout of Darrell that was on the stage and pulled it over by him at the podium and everyone cheered chanting "DIMEBAG DIMEBAG DIMEBAG!!" He was surprisingly pretty positive like when he said "I have something on all y'all, I knew him way longer than any of you did" with a laugh. But then when he started to tear up and his voice cracked when he said "He was my brother, Dimebag" my mother, my best friend Josh, and I all began to cry. Alot of people in the crowd lost it then and started holding hands and hugging. They then cut the lights and showed a special video which consisted of MANY AMAZING Darrell solo's some going as far back as 86-88 on his cherryburst standard that he had before his "Dean from Hell" and scenes from what was gonna be the Damageplan home video (I don't know if they're gonna still make it) which had tons of shots of Darrell chasing his bandmates around his house with his favorite toys, fireworks. There were shots of him doing solos on that newest Dean he had with the flames painted on it, very very cool. When film was over only one light came on, a single spotlight, over THE DEAN, the Lightning Bolt ML. It was an amazing night that I'll never forget, a fitting tribute to an amazing guitar legend.

Keep in mind its just a rough draft.

mood music for the moment
on Fri Dec 17, 2004 2:17 am
I'm sure that all of you (like me) have been listening to Pantera and Damageplan like crazy since Dime's passing.
Tonight I decided to put on something else to break things up a bit. I threw in BLS Hangover music Vol. VI. Knowing how close Zakk and Dime were, it really put me in a nice place. Granted, I'm tipping a few back so that may be part of it, but this album is making me reflect, not just on Dimebag, but all of the hard times I've had or shared with others.
I'm downstairs in my bar-room. The fireplace is going and I'm thinking about Dime's smile, My two dogs (rotties) that both died this year, (one from cancer and one from old age) and our bass players parents who both passed away this year.
What a great disc for this kind of moment. I wasn't as into this disc when it came out because I was used to the bad-ass BLS stuff that proceeded it.
Give it a listen real soon. I hope it does for you what it's doing for me right now.
We have a show this weekend and I can't wait to tip one back for ole' Dime on stage. I also have a Dime glued to the headstock of my ML.
Have a great weekend all.

SHADOWS FALL drummer reports funeral/public memorial for CFH
I thought everyone would like to see this, espicaly for the people that were not there.
~ One shot for me and one shot for Dime - Mission complete ~
"I have just gotten to my computer today after returning home from Dimebag Darrell Abbott's funeral and I wanted to share what happened there with you all... Some of you were there, but a lot of you weren't so I will try to not paint a morbid picture.
Tuesday, December 14:...........
I board what appears to be a tuna can with propellers that I pray is going to safely get me to Baltimore....
Safely in Baltimore, I board my plane for Dallas...
Arrive in Dallas and then grab cab to the Wyndam Arlington where I will be staying....
Grab my room key, quickly bump into my good friend Charlie Benante who looks like everyone else I'm going to see for the next 12 hours...tired, pale, and bummed. Next I see Shaun from SOIL, who informs me I can cram in their van to go to the services (cool)......
Shower and go bother metal's whitest black man Willie Gee (currently MEGADETH's guitar tech) ... who always seems to make me laugh....
Me, Willie, Big Roger and everyone in SOIL head to the funeral home... It is here where anyone and everyone is here to pay their respects and (unfortunately under the circumstances) and say 'Hello.' Everyone's here...
DISTURBED, STATIC-X, some of the SLIPKNOT guys (whom after taking with Corey are VERY excited about our upcoming tour, so that rules). TYPE O NEGATIVE guys, Rex [Brown], Pepper Keenan, KITTIE, my buddy Dino (ex-FEAR FACTORY), ALICE IN CHAINS guys... The list is extensive. We finally head into the chapel to the strains of BLACK LABEL SOCIETY being played over the PA system, to find a HEAVILY flowered mass area, with Dime quietly laid out in his KISS coffin!!! Rockin'! As we all try to keep our composure, the services start with Jerry Cantrell and Mike Inez from ALICE IN CHAINS, who come out to play some acoustic ALICE IN CHAINS tunes with another guitar player (whom I didn't know), and Pat from DAMAGEPLAN singing as well... Very beautiful, not a dry eye in the house!! Next was Zakk's speech where he told a very funny story about him and Dime drinking over four bottles of Crown (oh, my liver hurts just thinking about it) one day on Ozzfest, and then the two of them waking up in Zakk's bunk together spooning!!!! Hey, Zakk said it, not me! Next was Charlie Benante's very moving speech, he told some funny stories and just wanted everyone to remember what a great, funny dude Dime was... Lastly was no other than Eddie Van Halen... who had given Rita (Dime's wife, pretty much) his actual old black/yellow Charvel for Dime to be buried with. It was pretty surreal!! So after the service ended, they asked if anyone wanted to view Dime one last time, to do so in an orderly fashion. Since i hadn't been able to make the wake, I wanted to go... so I grabbed Willie and Bo (who was THE HAUNTED's tour manger on this last tour) to go up with me. I was not prepared for what I was about to see. Dime looked fine, but what I then quickly noticed in the corner of his KISS casket was a small autographed splash cymbal that was put in the coffin 2 days prior... it was mine. I had given this to Dime a day before our tour ended as a memento, because he intially asked me for a pair of my sticks, so I went one better. Needless to say, I lost it... I started crying immediately (and I am right now just thinking about it) and tried to quickly walk away but Vinnie called out to me and came over to console me as best as he could, I saw Pat real quick and gave him a hug, but I had to get out. I only knew this man closely for 5 1/2 weeks, but it felt like a lot more than that....... "Outside I ran into Rat, who was one of DAMAGEPLAN's tech's on this last tour, we exchanged hugs and words, but it was nice to see he was still here. Right as we were about to leave I saw our buddy BEST DUDE... otherwise known as 'The Kat', Vinnie's tech. To those who dont know, Kat was shot a few times on that unfortunate night, be looked great in his suit (yeah, imagine that) and he had a drink in his hand and was in good spirits......
Back in the van, first stop, yup you guessed it, THE LIQUOR STORE... Let the buzz begin. We then went to a great seafood restaurant and had a party of about 25 people, shots all over the place, (EVEN WILLIE GEE DRANK 2 SHOTS!) good food, good times and David from DISTURBED paid for all of us! When I thanked him, he said 'It's what Dime woulda done!' 'I got plastic that goes for miles!!' – Dime. Anyways it was nice.......
Public memorial service at the Arlington Convention Center, what an event… The highlight was watching Eddie Van Halen taking the mike away from Zakk every time Zakk tried to finish his speech... I couldn't help but think what he might have done if it wasn't one of his heroes!!! Anyways, we had a good time remembering Dime for all the good stuff, and we shed more tears as well........
or so we got kicked out of the Convention Center, I do a quick interview with Denise and Juliya for 'Uranium', and then we go back to the hotel bar. By this point I had been paling around with my new comedian buddies Don Jamieson and Jim Flourentine the 'Terrorizing Telemarketers' guys, and some of you may know Jim as 'Bobby Fletcher' and 'Special Ed' from Crank Yankers. Two great dudes, who are big metalheads that brought some laughs at a needed time.......
Last call, I cram in a car with Don, Jim, and one of their friends to finish the party out over at Vinnie's house. We arrive, Rita shows us to the bar, and I commence to go talk drum s#%t with Mike from DROWNING POOL and my good bud Charlie Benante (yes, there IS going to be a reunion tour w/ Joey — shhhh). Jim had to get to the airport so we stayed 'till about 5 or so... but before leaving I talked with Rita (who seems to be doing really well right now) for awhile about the fact that Dime really liked our band, and really had a great time (Vinnie told me the same) on what turned out to be this final run, I told her I was flattered about the cymbal, and she said 'It meant a lot to him' — still in shock over that!! She also said the 'he adored Jon' so that was really nice too!!!!!!!!!
Drop Jim off at airport and conemplate calling my wife with a 'Special Ed' prank phone call, but we didn't have time. Next time.......
Don drops me off at the hotel, I pop in Shaun from SOIL's room for one last beer with him, Dino and Tony from STATIC-X......
Willie frantically knocks on my door 'C'mon Sarge you overslept!')....
At the airport with a killer hangover... Worth it for 'The Idol'.... "So as I said, if you got this email, there's a reason... Go buy a bottle of Crown Royal, pour a double for you, and one for Dime and knock it back....'GETCHA PULL!!' and light a candle at Xmas for his memory, he's in a better place, and he will be missed...... "I know I miss him." .......
I haven’t picked up my guitar in about 2 or 3 years, started playin when I was like 15 (am 25 now). When the tragedy happened, first place I went on Monday was to get the Guitar fixed, tuned up, and new strings with a new fx pedal; "Reinventing the Inspiration" so to speak.
Most of my free time was spent on drawing Graphic Art
Now I will be dedicating most of my free time to practicing my guitar again (my first love). I wanted to do one last art piece before I took my "leave of absence" from art.
On a few forums I’ve been on since this happened, I’ve seen these awesome threads of Dimebag Pics, some of them were heart wrenching and some with just awesome inspiration.
I have picked out 101 (proof
) from them and looked online for photo mosaic programs. And found one (if your interested google "Rick and Steves Mosaic Program")
Its kind of intimidating at first. But after I did one, they are pretty easy to make after you have collected 100+ pictures, edit hem and make them all identical in size.
I’ve made a printable one for myself it can only probably be used by myself because there are most likely copyrighted pictures that were originally posted in the Forums I got these pics from.
But if any of you would like to take a look at a printable version, I’m no just about every IM service under "darkstorm777" (this includes Y!, AIM, MSN (@hotmail.com)
Hope you all enjoy it. Ill be doing a few of these and I’m still experimenting with the settings of the program, so keep on the look out for more.
Dime props on the Jagermusic tour.
on Sat Dec 18, 2004 8:44 pm
My band played the last stop of the Jagermusic tour last night. My fellow Dean artists Fireball Ministry played after us, then Mastodon, Killswitch Engaged, and SLAYER!!! Anyhow, we paid tribute to Dime by finishing up our set with F'n Hostile. The crowd went nuts and sang along.
Kerry King had a sticker on his guitar that said "Dime!" and when they were done playing, he came out with two shots of Jager. He drank one and left the other on the stage for Dime which I thought was very touching.

here ya go guys. i was bored:
couldnt decide which one i liked better
Blacktooth with Dean Z, Elliott and crew for Dime
Had a message when I got home from work that Dean Z had called. I called him back and found out that they had waited for me to call so I could be part of a special toast for the Dean Christmas Party. They all had blacktooths made up and ready. They waited for me to get one poured and a toast was made for Dime. What a special moment for me that they would call me to make sure I was a part of it. I think the most ironic part about it is, the bottle of Crown was given to me by a good friend a while back and I was waiting for a good occasion to open it up. Talk about perfect timing. Thanks Dean and Elliott for letting me be a part of something like that. Made my Xmas season.
I read what dean said on dimebag and he said that they were going to release a new sig line the "razorback" Do you think it will happen still?
Dime was the reason i wanted to play guitar. The fist song i heard was revolution is my name and reinveting the steel was my first metal album.
Also did anyone notice that everyone still thinks dime played washburns and randall amps. It sad to see that everyone is selling thier guitar to knok a homerun on ebay and they dont give a rats ass about the guitar or what it means they just want the money.
Dimebag tribute on Uranium last night with Pat Lachman
Juliya and Pat did a whole show on Dime. Lots of interviews with all his friends, some scenes from his tribute in Texas and most importantly, lots of very good recent video with him and his new Deans. It was awesome to see him and his '79s in action. Wow, that really set it home. If you guys get Fuse I highly suggest you watch it when they re-air the show.

5/18/1989 Dimebag and Pantera with Kerry King of Slayer
on Fri Dec 24, 2004 10:12 pm
I just picked this up yesterday at a local record store. Its before "Cowboys From Hell". The bootleg(great quilatity by the way)starts off with Kerry King and Dimebag jammin on Slayer riffs. They actually come up with a song they did that night. Later in the vid they show them at the club they performed at that night jammin on Slayer songs "Angel of Death"and "South of Heaven". Also they jammed to vintage Judas Priset songs. After awhile it gets into ther set they play some songs i dont reconize. Im prettt sure there pre- Cowboys from Hell. Anyways its a pretty cool bootleg
Why in the hell would anybody want a Washburn now?

When Dime came back to Dean 3 weeks before he was shot? They will pay a premium for it.
?QUESTION ABOUT DIME'S NECK PICKUP??????
on Sun Dec 26, 2004 9:11 pm
Why did he put black electrical tape on his neck pickup? Even in the lastest Guitar World ads, both of them they have the tape on them!!!???
I just wanna say thanks to all the cats in this forum, it's been a huge part of my grievance....... I want start a thread on dime tats. I'm gonna post mine as soon as my wife gets home to film it. My buddy is gonna blow up a back piece on me pretty sonn...... Pics will follow. Anyway, I'll be here alot, take care and raise 'em high, pound 'em down.
Was the guitar that Dime played in the "Psycho Holiday" video
way back in the day a Dean? It was a crazy blue ML shaped
guitar, but with a reverse ESP style headstock. I'm just curious.
Thanks for any info.

I saw some photos of Damageplan where Dime was playing Deans.
