Today we lost an amazing musician

Today is the anniversay of the death of an amazing musician. Someone who changed the face of music. Whose presence on stage and off inspired a new generation of musicians around the world.

Yes, that's right, it's the one-year anniversary of the death of "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott.

I remember the first time I heard Pantera. I saw the Cemetery Gates video on Headbanger's Ball. Their sound fundamentally changed the way I listened to heavy metal. When you hear Pantera, you immediately understand how intense music can be. You expect it. They reset the bar.

The world is a sadder place without him. Rest in peace.
