PANTERA LIVE IN MOSCOW, 1990 (OR: R.I.P. DIME)
Today marks the 4th anniversary of the shooting of Darrell “Dimebag” Abbott. Rather than wax ecstatic about what an awesome dude Dime was, or bore you to tears with a story about where I was when I found out about the death, or rail about how fucked up it is that a musician’s life would end in such a manner or how fucked it is that Dime’s legacy has been raped and pillaged in the name of money by everyone with the means to do so (all these things are true… they’ve just been completely beat to shit in the media)… I’d like to post my favorite Pantera video of all-time (“Cowboys From Hell” live in Moscow, 1990) and invite you all to share your Dime stories — of any kind — with us in the comments.
R.I.P. Dime. The world lost a legend 4 years. Oh, what’s that… John Lennon also died on December 8th? All kidding aside, Dimebag is perhaps our metal generation’s John Lennon.
