well on December 8th the world mourned the loss of 2 very important musical icons. first off there was John Lennon ( R.I.P. ) although he was kind of a hippie he was also a good humanitarian and before his time.
the second in which i speak of hits closer to home to me, Pantera / Damageplan guitarist Dimebag Darrel Abbot. Dime was taken before his time by some gutless jackass with a gun. Dime was a guitarist who helped shape a small part of my guitar playing. And when I had the oppertunity to meet him, he was a very humble person, that meeting i will take to my grave and never forget. Rest In Peace Dime, you will never be forgotten and thanks for sharing your life with the rest of the world. you are missed!
