Episode Summary

This is the story of metal band Pantera, who fought on and triumphantly carried the torch, while waves of grunge and rap-rock took over the radio and video channels. Tragically, guitarist Dimebag Darrell was murdered, shot onstage by a crazed Pantera fan, exactly 24 years to the day after the killing of John Lennon.moreless

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Terry Glaze: There's Eddie Van Halen talking at the funeral service; he puts his guitar into the casket with Darrell. It's the guitar off of Van Halen II, the black one with the yellow stripe, it's the guitar; and all I can think is that back in the early days when we were teenagers, if someone would've said, "Darrell, when you die, Van Halen's gonna put that guitar in your casket with you," Darrell would've said, "kill me now."

      • Jerry Abbott: (On his son's death) Underneath all that hard rock 'n roll exterior was a little boy.

      • Zakk Wylde: (on Dimebag Darrell) He's just up in God's tavern, mixing cocktails for everybody, hanging out with Randy Rhoades, John Bonham, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin--everybody.

      • Vinnie Paul: It was weird for the fans, you know. They wanted Pantera. I mean, you've been serving people Coca-Cola for two hundred years, and all of a sudden, you tell them we're changing the flavor, and it's now gonna be called Diet Rite.

      • Zakk Wylde: I'd go, "how's it goin', dude," and he's just like, "I'm just bummed out, man," and I'd go, "Well, Dime, look at it this way, man. The good Lord gave you a gift, he put it in your hands. You're the best damn guitar player in the world. Just get Vinnie, get some ass-kicking musicians with you."

      • Phil Anselmo: I was really really turned on to heroin. I realized that it would numb me up so much, that the pain was gone...and that's like putting a Band-Aid over cancer.
