Dimebag Darrell R.I.P. 1966-2004
The Peds website shutdown from the volume of people going to view the photo of me and Dime getting drunk with Ace Frehley Kiss paint on our faces. I will try to get it back online here http://www.myspace.com/thepeds. The news of Dime's death is a huge shock for me. I had the opportunity to meet Dime at Rocky's nightclub in Charlotte NC many years ago. My friend Tripp McNeil of the band Seducer invited me to this knowing Dime would be dropping by after his Pantera gig. He was a huge influence on me as a young guitar player. I got see to see Pantera with Type O Negative on my birthday at LJVM Coliseum in Winston Salem NC. After the show I got to hang out with Dime a second time at Ziggy's nightclub. Dimebag Darrell was a great guitarist and one of the nicest people I have met. The Heavy Metal community has lost a great musician.
