Those Pantera survivors had a rough time. I lost my brother 20 years ago and it often weighs on my mind. I can't imagine the stress Vinnie must have endured over the years.

I can't believe it. I'm from from Arlington, TX like him. His brother is buried there. In 2013 I was home and saw him and Rex Brown eating inside Wendy's. I wanted to say hey but figured they get bugged all the time.

Yeah, I bought a guitar from the Arlington shop where Dimebag taught guitar lessons. Very early days of Pantera before any commercial breakthrough. I always intended to take a lesson with him but by the time I'd mastered the rudiments his band had that breakthrough and they were touring constantly. Never got to meet him.

I gave up the guitar 10 years later. Never really got good at it. Sold that guitar, a beautiful factory made Schecter, not one cobbled together from parts by a guy in his garage. Glossy black Telecaster style body but with hard, sharp edges inlaid in ivory colored material. Maple neck, with action set a little too low for my taste. Split coil humbuckers that sounded great in any mode or combination. Single large toggle switch like a Les Paul, with smaller switches for the coil split. Last time I saw that guitar it was being played by a guy in the large band in a charismatic church. He was pretty good with tasteful rhythm comping and did justice to the guitar.
