I see what you did there...When grunge came along I was going the thrash route. I was playing in an originals thrash band and I remember one day at practice when we cut for break the other guitarist popped "VDOP" into the boom box and hit play. I just remember standing there in bewilderment as Dime had that sliding power chord main riff to "Mouth For War". It was one of those "man, I really suck moments".
Best or not is debatable but Dime clearly owned the 90s and saved guitar, at least for me, during that decade. Nobody else was making that much of an impact at that time that I can recall.
How dare you omit the great Dave Murray!Chris Oliva
Uli Jon Roth
Yngwie J Malmsteen
Just some guitarists I enjoyed more than Dimebag Darrel.
I could easily expand that list, but I think that is enough.
Dimebag was great. Don’t get me wrong. I just don’t think he was the greatest.
It’s obviously subjective.
Maybe Dimebag is your top gun - good for you, but he wasn’t the greatest to everyone. I think just about everyone would say “he was a great guitar player” though. That’s pretty great right there.
ive never heard dime mess up...granted, Iommi did play some loud ass blues licks...but still
