Tämä häiriintyneen fanin suorittama veriteko muodostaa sydämeenkäyvän elämäkerran verenpunaisen langan.1980-luvun alussa perustettu Pantera kehittyi yhdeksi metalliskenen suurista nimistä. Menestystä seurasi sarjariippuvuuksia ja bändin sisäisiä kiistoja, mutta Dimebagin omalaatuisen hyväntuulinen luonne nousee esiin kirjan synkimmissäkin jaksoissa. Pantera-historiikista käyvä teos on murheellisine loppuineenkin valoisa kertomus lahjakkaasta muusikosta, joka toi lämpöä (ja krapuloita) tapaamiensa ihmisten elämään.Maailman parhaaksi ja innovatiivisimmaksi kitaristiksi tituleeratun Dimebagin ylittämättömyyttä kuvaa hyvin anekdootti, jonka mukaan häntä kiellettiin 16-vuotiaana osallistumasta yhteenkään Texasin kitarakilpailuun, koska hän oli niin ylivoimainen....

    One of the better rock and roll bio's I have read. I enjoyed this one because I have always been a fan of Dimebag. It brought back a lot of memories. I haven't read the one by Rex Brown, but it's on my list to read. Curious to see the difference.This was very informative and filled with a lot of insights into the Abbott's family life and the crazy, intense party that Darrell brought with him wherever he went. Good stuff. Such a pity how it all ended.

    I was really looking forward to reading this as Darrell was my largest guitar inspiration growing up. I mean seeing my buddy playing a "DimeSlime" green Washburn Dimebag Darrell signature model is what made me want to play guitar in the first place!What I always loved about the articles and interviews I read about him was that not only was he one of the best guitarists in the last 30 years, but he had a big heart. The man loved to party, loved the guitar, and loved his fans. I really enjoyed how Crain pulled his information from a lot of other sources of information that have not been tapped such as Larry English from Washburn Guitars and some of Darrell's childhood friends. It gave many more details about his rise from local guitar hero to guitar god to fallen star rebuilding his life. It was also refreshing to see a publication that did not dwell immensely on the bitter ending relationship between Phil Anselmo and Dime. My only disappointment with this book is way Crain ended it with a chapter entitled "Bonus Track". It basically takes the incredible story and ends it by saying that Darrell was a highly functioning alcoholic. I think that point was pretty clearly made throughout, but having a chapter on it kind of tarnished the rest of the story. With that said, this book is highly recommended for anyone who is a fan of the late, great guitarist. It's well written and very entertaining.

    I gave this book a 3 star rating.If your really in to Pantera,read this book. its good for what it is. It skips around alot. I t seems that ive heard most of these stories in interviews over the years. I am a Pantera / Dime fan. I also read Rex Brown's book 101 proof, That's a really good read, to hear about the interworkings, the highs and lows the undoing of one of the greatest heavy metal bands in the world. This is Rexs story, but Rex was in the band.

    The book was cool about how he was just some normal kid in Texas then some guitar whiz to then famous member in Pnatera then to being gunned down on stage. It wasn't cool of him being killed but he is a great musican. I actually made a video yesterday TO THE 6th anniversery of his death which I shall post on facebook. Also I havent fully read the book so hopefully I will buy it then make that my reading book. Getcha pull.

    Made me sad all over again reading this, and I've been cranking the Pantera for days. Quite informative and well-written, while it wasnt warts-and-all, it did seem to capture some of the essence that came across in interviews and the videos. Well worth the read.

    Very shallow book about a pretty much shallow drunken git. Would have liked to learn more about dimebag, but may not be much there to begin with,

    This was a really good bio about Dimebag. I'm given it four stars because I couldn't put it down. Fans should definitely read this. Much better than Rex's book.

    Excellent insight into Pantera's rise and fall. A little repetitive with the interminable quotes of praise for his playing, but hey the guy was a legend, lots of people said so. Wraps up rather quickly and doesn't focus much on the murder or the aftermath. Left me wondering if Vinnie or Rita ever made amends with Anselmo. Overall a good read and I've been listening to and enjoying Pantera more and more since this book.

    As a Pantera fan, I was curious to learn more about Dimebag Darrell. I usually stay away from 'rockstar' books in general - usually all fluff. This one was pretty good though - and spoiler alert - it opens with his murder then backtracks to his early life and moves forward.

    All things considering...that is to say that i didn't & still don't know a whole lot of about the heavy metal apocalypse that was Pantera, i still found this to be a good & Intriguing book. What i didn't know about Pantera as a bad & Dimebag Darrell, i certainly know now. I will admit that their style of metal isn't exactly within range of my taste but i do have 2 of their cd's, Vulgar Display of Power & Reinventing the Steel, on my Ipod, now i may not listen to them very often, for said above reason but i do give them credit and just due for the originality and style that they brang to their albums & concerts. Unfortunately i saw a video of the tragic end of Dimebag and to me it was just shocking & horrifying as to what end he met with. I believe that this man was in fact cut down before he was able to be completely imortalized by the rest of the world, however his music style, legacy and quiet a few things will continue to live on...hopefully forever in the form of remakes of old pantera albums, tributes to him, etc. Either way I am sort of regretting that i never got to see a Pantera concert myself seeing as Dimebag was a musician all his own.

    What a great book. While it does go into drinking stories a bit much, it's hard to deny that drinking played a big role in Dimebag's life. The stories all made me want to practice more, play more, write more, and be a better person. All because of stories of Dime. That's a pretty great book.I also like how much attention was paid toward his guitars. You don't see that very often since they're for a niche market, but Dime was a guitarist before he was a drinker and it's represents nicely. Overall such a good book, I may have to repurchase it in physical form for my bookshelf.

    Ymmärrettävästi tässä elämänkerrassa paneudutaan Dimebagin elämään ja kuolemaan. Ja onkin varsin mielenkiintoista lukea kohtuullisen tarkka selostus vuoden 2004 tylyistä tapahtumista ja sitä edeltävistä hilpeistä ajoista. Hieman olisin kaivannut kuitenkin syvempää rouhaisua Panterasta ja Damageplanista. Niiltä osin kirja jää valitettavan pinnalliseksi raapaisuksi. Yhtkä kaikki, viihdyttävä ja nopeasti luettu elämänkerta.

    I have to hand it to Zac, I never thought I'd care a lick about Dimebag, Pantera or Damageplan. But the flow and the style of his writing did so much to pull me in. It made for a very interesting book club meeting!

    After years of guitar magazine interviews with Darrell over the years, there was lots in here that I knew already, but much more new information than I expected. A great tribute and remembrance of Dime's life and his devotion to playing guitar, which were pretty much the same thing.

    I enjoyed this book, it made me happy sad. Dime was amazing and I think this book is a great reminder. I felt a little let down as I thought a lot of the information was from interviews or pantera videos. I was expecting more.

    A very intimate and candid portrait of the late great Dimebag Darrell, one of the most gifted guitar players in the history of heavy music, who was taken from us way too soon.
