25 years ago, some dopey kids released an album.
I saw Pantera when they were opening for White Zombie back in the 80's. I was right in the front in the mosh pit. It was a memorable evening to say the least.
40 years ago, some dopey kids released an album.
I'd post my other favorite from the album, but I can't find a version with the title censored, and I can't afford an infraction...
Let's just say, when listen to it, I get ****ing hostile...
F'ing Hostile I mean awesome!!!!!
So much greatness.
I type slow Josh.
Check yo math, Huck.
Dimebag lived in the neighborhood across from my parents...and he went to high school with my sister. I used to see him at the 7-11 and would occasionally see him and Vinnie at their strip club. By all accounts nice guys. He would hold court at 7-11 and shake hands, exchange hugs, and talk it up with anyone who recognized him...all while holding the Heineken he was there to buy. This was before cell phone cameras but I watched a lot of pictures taken and a lot of t shirts, hats, and whatever signed.
I remember when I was in high school ('89) they were a hair metal cover band and Daryl taught guitar lessons at Rainbow Music on Cooper street...he drove a black Chevy luv pickup and came to my sister's graduation party. He was the weird guy with lots of hair.
I would love to say I "knew those guys" but that is a pretty big stretch. Everyone who lived in Arlington knew them as well as I did. I did meet and hang out with Jeff "Mayhem" who was shot and killed with Dimebag. He was a friend of a friend and although he was 6'10" and probably close to four hundred pounds with hair down to the middle of his back...he was a great, normal guy and I truly enjoyed a memorable night of beers and stories when I met him. It was a shock to find out that such a giant of a man could be killed with a pistol...and not shocking at all to hear that he died trying to protect Daryl. His friends that I knew expressed that his actions were a true representation of his character.
The shooting sucked. A couple of really good people lost their lives over nothing.
cool ass post
Can it be officially be played on the oldies station now?
I think the album has aged really well. I still listen to it.
47 years the Billboard charts were dominated by the likes of the Jackson 5, the Beatles, and Simon & Garfunkel. That year a band of 20-somethings released their first album and wound up creating an entirely new musical genre that has forever changed the sound of rock and roll.
My first concert was Jim Morrison and the Doors back in 67. My friends say I had a great time. By the 80's I was too deaf for concerts, but the reading is still fun.
who are they?
Awesome album and I still have the CD..lol
Sex Pistols, Sid vicious on the left.
Great album. I have a interesting Daryl Abbot story I'll tell if people are interested.
