Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

This reminds me- The 200th (Jan 2010) of Metal Hammer UK has a Dimebag tribute album free.

It's a shame kids don't appreciate Dimebag's playing and contribution, Pantera were pretty groundbreaking when Cowboys and Vulgar were released and Dime could easily out-shred most of today's so called guitar heroes. It is a shame he is being exploited by companies after his death though because this just diminishes his reputation.

I agree, I'm kind of sick of Dean constantly marketing a new "Dimebag signature guitar". The man was great, he's dead, give him some respect and quit trying to make another buck off him. I do think I'll read this though, looks interesting. (Also doesn't appear that its full of Dean's bullcrap)

You sir are the most intelligent person in this thread.

Maybie I'm bias because i'm a huge fan of panter, even the later stuff. But he was an original metal play as far as rhythm playing goes. He used whammy bar techniques in riffs, strangre chords, complex time signatures. Also very groove orientated heavy guitar riffs, a thing that most modern metal bands have dime to thank for. And although he may have had a tradition lead playing style he certainly had allot of feel and finnesse.

Such ashame that his talent is overshadowed by his tragic death

Thank you for summing up my thoughts.

no, Sketchy z nobody gives a flyin fuk about your sorry ass and your jealous because of it. Dime was one of the most original sounding and soulful guitarists that EVER lived, you smelly, worthless, piece of schit. if you dont like his music why check out this thread and, you still have to respect his talent because he was amazing. i dont like Chet Atkins music but i sure respect his tallent.

so FUK OFF MOTHER FUKER!!!!!!!!!!!!

Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'

Meh, looks like any other Dime marketing scheme.

On the other hand-prebuscent boys don't read books anyway.
Target group/audience fail?

I have UG Black Style and I can barely read my signature.

Slash's autobiography is an awesome read, disturbing but funny at the same time. I'll check out Ozzy's I imagine that is similar!

Target audience is more likely people who were into Pantera when Cowboys From Hell and Vulgar display of power was released, these were the original fans who are now in their late 20's early 30's. The prepubescent (I think you meant) teens don't have money, don't buy books and would rather spend time arguing on forums like this
