Happy Birthday Dimebag Darrell! From Swimming With Sharks

Pantera is my favorite band. Period. They had the biggest influence on me as a musician. It’s days like this that I really miss Pantera… and one of the greatest guitar players to ever live, Dimebag Darrell.

“It’s crazy to think it’s been over a decade without “Dimebag” Darrell, one of the greatest shredders to ever live. Today would’ve been Darrell’s 49th birthday. Wherever he is, I’m sure he’s enjoying a mighty fine black toooooooth.” – Metal Injection (metalinjection.nethttp://www.metalinjection.net/av/today-wouldve-been-dimebag-darrells-49th-birthday

Pantera Ticket

It was the ONE and ONLY time I got to see Pantera perform live. It was at that moment I realized what I wanted to do with my life… And no I don’t mean become an alcoholic. And no I’m not an alcoholic…
