Dimebag kicked the most riff-o-liscious grooves that heavy metal has ever known. His influence is ever reaching. Without the inspirational rock guitar riff innovators such as Vernon Reid, Billy Gibbons, James Hetfield, Keith Richards, Chuck Berry, Dave Mustaine, and of course, Dimebag; we may have never seen the likes of Tom Morello, Jerry Cantrell and a host of others that kept the torch 'a' burnin!.

The great thing about Pantera, was that that one would be hard pressed to find many bands not only devoid of weakness with respect to individual musicianship, but with such a show of dominance at each respective end of the band. Not only did Phil's vocals blow you away with power, melodic brilliance, and variety; but they were perfectly complimented by the fat riffs coming from Dimebag's Dean Razorback axe, and Rex's meaty bass lines, and it was all tied together by the thunderous beats Vinnie Paul was kicking!

I love PANTERA. I was broken up by their dissolution, but we will always have their music to keep us going. I look to them for inspiration in my musical projects. The song 'Point of View' is actually a tune I wrote for my band, STRANGE DAY, a shortwhile after Dimebag was tragically murdered by that misguided and confused soul, who took our hero. It's about perspective and really just living each day like it could be your last...and I feel like if Dime, taught us anything, it's to give each day everything you got and have a blast while you're doing it!

This is a TRIBUTE PROFILE to one of my favorite bands....go BUY some RECORDS and show some LOVE to DIME'S LEGACY! Btw, downloading sucks, just go buy the d*mn record already ;-) The 'Best of Pantera...' has some cool photos and stuff in the cover art.
