"There I wuz, kickin it in me room, online, 2:30 a.m Dec. 9, rotten.com. What i read at that moment did not, no, could not,be real. No. Fucking. WAY. It is now Jan. 20 and I am still totally bummed, shocked and FAR BEYOND PISSED OFF. Pantera was and still is the baddest...and Dime, fuck...he just amazed and stoked my soul with his groundbreaking shredding from the day I first heard them just after CFH was released. This sucks. Bad. Punk motherfuck piece of shit Nathan Hale I hope karma has you pulled from nails with yer bones all shattered, yer still feeling corpse (dead but alive, screaming...)boiling in yer own blood in the most evil level of the 6th dimension. (words borrowed from &quot;Domination&quot;) Pantera stole yer written words and used them in their music? Yer biscuit must have been long-stale in the sun. You were fuckin WHACK. You fucking took from us...you took Dime. I can't understand. I feel a loss, a hollowness inside(that song haunts me in a whole new way now),and I did'nt know the man but I always felt lik<br>    I cannot possibly convey how sorry I am for Dime's family...but I share your pain and your loss and I hope your hearts will hurt a little less knowing how many of us empathize...I am so sorry, in so many ways. Strange,how the world doesn't quite seem right anymore...I will miss you and keep you in my soul where yer guitar will always live, shredding, ripping, and at the same time pulling emotions from places inside me I never knew existed. That is from my heart. It feels fucking hollow, too. Hope to meet you somewhere out there, jam with you in t<br>    Scott Collins, 42, longhairedhessionmusician/writer from Desert mutherfuckin Hot Springs, Ca.";

"FUCKIN' DIMEBAG!!!!!! This guy was the best motherfunkin guitar player and one of the last true &quot;Heavy&quot; Metal artists/icon that the rock world had left. I mean the shit he wrote fuckin way back from the CFH days till present is WAY better than any of the new shit thats on the radio. Fuck radio, they never play his shit anyways. His riffs always manage to make me jump around like a wasted bastard, or bang my head till the song is over. It never fails. My fuckin dream was to meet the man but now it'll never happen cuz some dumb fuck was mad that Pantera broke up or some shit. What a fuckin crackhead (actually crack heads might be brighter than this fag) now Pantera will never ever get back together (which they would of done  eventually) and we'll never again be able to see Dime and Vinnie rockin' together with DamagePlan on tour. FUCK NATHAN whatever. BURN IN FUCKIN HELL!! He had no fuckin right. And wasn't he pissed off at Phil? Dime will always live on in my mind and especially when I jam out or drink. He is a true insperation to me. Hearing Pantera for the first time at Ozzfest 2000 literally changed my life, I never imagined music so heavy, yet with a grove that kicks ass. The whole fuckin place was moshin, the seats, lawn, everyone. It was soo fu<br>Dallas, Texas!!! ";rest in peace.hat he loved.

He put guitar playing to a new level for me and the world and im still learning how to play his riffs. One of my greatest influences is gone and it sucks. He lives on through everybody that appreciated his music. When I die I hope we jam out together Dimebag Darrell. I will miss you. Now we can all take a shot of crown royal for you, R.I.P.";

You were like a god that I never imagined meeting, and when I did, shit man my world forever glowed. I will always cherish everything about you, your music, your talent, your character, and most of all my memory of meeting you. As you look down from heaven you can see all who miss you very much.

"I never, in my life, thought I would be moved in any way by someone in music dying.  It was too much of a cliche.  People saying their lives would never be the same, that wasn't me.  It is now, every time Pantera came around my area, even if I had to travel half a fuckin day, I would go.  More often than not, I got a chance to talk to all the guys.  And you dont think about the ways people change you, even in the most subtle ways.  Dimebag's magic drew me in sure as shit, and brought my two guitarists too.  We know the music comes from us, but the want to pick up the insruments, and have a good fucking time, and create something special, that is what a legend can do.  I'm not saying we would never have gotten together, but I can say this, lookin at him, and seein he made it, has made this road alot fuckin easier.  So, keep Dime and every other rock legend alive, so that the kids at our shows may have a sense of what true greatness is. And who knows, maybe a few of em will pick up an axe of their own.  So Dime, You had a great ride, shortened yes, but mythical in it's own right. I hope whoever is up there fuckin knows what you did down here, and treats ya with the respect you deserve. One of many fans, Chad. ";

"Dimebag is still loved by all those who truly love heavy metal. Amybody that wants to say disrespectfull things should take a look at what the music they listen to comes from. I assure any one that listens to anything heavier than Madonna that has been made after Pantera released Cowboys from Hell, there will be a Pantera influence in there somewhere.  Dime did great things with his axe and inspired greatness in modern metal.  It is because of him, all the metal has good guitar work and no other genre does (not counting blues and jazz). Just because he is dead, does not mean his influence is gone.  There are still tons of kids out there with a guitar trying to learn to play at least one Pantera solo, most of which are failing, but I guess a lot of people do...";

"Too many things happen in this life for anyone to stop and face reality head on.  Your grandma could die, that was expected.  Your best friend could tragically get killed in a drunken accident, that may have been expected as well.  But when reality kicks you in the ass with something like this, that's what makes you question reality at the end of the day.  Is it all worth it anymore?  &quot;Life's all about experiences, that's why no regrets.&quot;, I've once heard.  With this soul taken from us to give to a greater good is something no one could probably ever let themselves forget, even those who've never gotten the privilege to meet in life on earth (like me).  But souls are taken from us everyday, that doesn't mean their spirits are forever gone.  It's up to us to let Dime's spirit live on.  I believe that with all my heart and soul...and spirit.  Though I'm a newborn in my journey of life, just recently finding out about this tragedy, I've made a promise to all that matters inside me to carry on with part of his spirit as my own, that's important to me.  He's touched me, that's crazy, but I love him for it.  Thanks man, maybe I'll get to meet you on the other side, 'til then our spirits can play together on this ball of dirt we call home, for now. One thing I've learned through passed happenings is that it all comes to pass that we are not bodies with souls.....we are souls with bodies...I Love You Dime, can't wait to meet you....";

"Dimebag was the greatest guitar player to have ever lived (and possibly the greatest to ever live).  He inspired myself and countless others to play guitar heavier and with more soul.  He will live forever in my heart.  He is immortalized <br />        LONG LIVE THE KING!"; world will never be the same.

"i have always been a fan of heavy metal but no other band helped light that fire for me was Pantera. i came across Pantera at a very young age 3 years old when they released Cowboys From Hell, i would stay up and watch headbangers ball in <br />in around 1992 when Pantera released Vulgar Display Of Power, it was from then i became a Pantera fan. Dimebag brought the best riffs and insane solos on <br />i was shocked and surprised when Pantera split in 2003, and when Phil Anselmo was going in2 other bands like Down &amp; Superjoint Ritual. when my mum and dad bought me my 1st guitar those words came straightup 'I WANNA BE LIKE DIMEBAG'. during the split period of Pantera, i immedialty bought 2 Pantera cds Vulgar &amp; Cowboys. during my schooldays i would get picked on, beaten up etc etc, but Pantera was like my heavymetal sanctuary i would listen to those albums Vulgar &amp; Cowboys again &amp; again because i wanted those bullies to hear my word<br />when i heard Dime and Vinnie formed a new band called Damageplan in 2004 i was xcited because i thought to myself Dime &amp; Vinnie will pull through no fuckin matter what. to keep the flame of heavymetal alive i bought Pantera's Far <br />Like Dimebag i also liked KISS &amp; Van Halen which are my 2 favourite ba<br />when i heard Dimebag was killed in Columbus Ohio in 2004 my heart just sanked i felt numb and upset it was like i lost a family member. as soon as i came home i went onto blabbermouth and just wept. i decided that i shuld buy the last Pantera cd Reinventing The Steel in Dimebag's honour. i had a party at my house full of my best college friends who i treat also like family members, i pulled out my acoustic guitar and played the opening riff of Cemetery Gates my friends were like amazed that i could pull the riff but instead of weeping and moaning i did an Irish wake, so we did that was drink beer and listen 2 Pantera and honou<br />to Dimebag Darrell Lance Abbott thanx 4 those riffs and for living the heavymetal lifestyle if it werent for U and Pantera, i wouldnt be listening 2 metal<br />to Vinnie Paul Abbott i send my biggest hearfelt condolences and may God b<br />Dimebag thank you for saving me from myself everytime i watch the vulgar videos DVD you always put a smile on my face and thank you again for inspiring me<br />";raj Pandya l and beyond love and bruises agers for you
