Very cool that you saw Diamond Darrell before Cowboys From Hell. I saw Pantera every time after that album, but by then they were playing bigger venues.
Right on brother!! BTW, I don't mean to denigrate Pantera by the "Glam" period they went through at Cardis, Thunders or BackStage...

BTW, Question?
WERE YOU OR WERE YOU NOT THAT NASTY MOFO THAT LEFT PUKE EVERYWHERE? CBGB's was jealous!!!

Nope. I just don't buy the argument that diversion of taxes payed by Hotel guests makes it not a tax subsidy for Billionaires. If you wish to think otherwise, then I'm not going to change your mind, but I would consider offering you beachfront property in Arizona because of Global Warming caused rises in sea levels.

While taxes are being used for the stadium the tax you brought up is not paid in large part by local tax payers and that is the reason they choose to impose it the way that they do. Naming it Houston Tax Payers would be rather silly as they arent paying the tax and you would also miss out on added revenue to be collected by corp sponsorships. Also the billionaire you speak of doesnt own the stadium so you are off on multiple fronts.


Please tell me about this ocen front property you know of. I hope it is just as informative as your take on population flows in California, credit card companies practices or any of the other topics that you are missinformed on

C'mon .... its Dimebag, not Diamond.

Cardis was awesome, so was the Abyss (Pantera played there once at least). Not even sure what rock clubs are out in H-town now. Is Backstage still there?

Man, no denigration at all. Pantera's history is what it is, and during the mid '80's when Pantera formed, they were just doing what most metalheads were doing.

And then Dimebag met James Hetfield, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Scourge made me copies of the early Pantera albums (pre-Cowboys), and Dime was always an amazing player. Hopefully Vinnie Paul releases a Pantera boxset one day with everything from their career.

You don't know your Pantera history. Liner notes of the original release of Cowboys From Hell lists him as Diamond Darrell.

In 1994, Abbott dropped the nickname "Diamond Darrell" (after original Van Halen lead vocalist "Diamond" David Lee Roth,) and assumed the nickname "Dimebag Darrell."

Dimebag – Stage Name Origins

Do we really have to explain this one? The legendary Pantera guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott first adopted the name of “Diamond” Darrell Abbott during the early stages of the band.

However, as Pantera began to emerge into a more aggressive realm of groove metal with 1990′s ‘Cowboys From Hell’ and the 1992 album ‘Vulgar Display of Power,’ “Diamond” just didn’t seem to fit the band’s developing sound. With that in addition to the guitarists affinity for the ‘Sweet Leaf,’ Darrell Abbott changed his nickname to “Dimebag” in 1994.

I still have the issue of Guitar World when he asked everyone to start calling him Dimebag.

All of this old bar/club nostalgia makes me pine for the Engine Room. Great metal bar that used to be on Pease.

Drove by it the other day and saw it abandoned. Got turned into a jazz club for a while.

The metal scene scuttlebutt a few years ago involved altercations with Lamb of God and the Dillinger Escape Plan with management. In reality, I'm sure it was their constant violation of the fire code and overselling that got them shut down.

Driving by the shell of the Meridian on 59 is always depressing.
