As is habit, there will be no lengthy missives and no eulogizing from me. Just an acknowledgment of the day and the man. I don’t care what your opinion of Pantera’s music was when you heard Dimebag play a guitar, you knew exactly who it was. His importance to and affect upon the metal genre is for people much more important that me to discuss but I can honestly say Vulgar Display of Power altered my musical trajectory immediately upon hearing it and it still gets regular play on my iPod.
So later tonight drink some whiskey and listen to a little Pantera at high volume.
