    My thoughts exactly.

    There's not any meaningful difference between "seeming" racist or "pretending" to be racist and actually being it.

    Aaaaannnyyy waaaaayyyy...

    CFH is a great album. Can't say I like any of their others.

    Obviously Dime was a good player.

    I should add that I think I heard this once, not that I know it was said.

    Dime never said one racist thing on the record, or in person AFAIK...and Phil’s downward plight was becoming unbearable for the rest of the band the last few years especially. It doesn’t mean I have to fault Dime, or the band as a whole. A band like Lynyrd Skynyrd would get roasted nowdays (how did Duck Dynasty make it??)...anyway, I don’t think Dean needs to reissue any Dime models being that CL and every pawn shop is chock full of the existing Dime guitars -no offense but they were kind of a novelty and the higher end models which were expensive and actually nice weren’t hot sellers with the budget minded shredder kids. Once the younger crowd grew up over 20-25 yrs those guitars kinda went the way of the BC Rich beast. The USA Washburns were really the nicest of ‘em all...I’m sure at some point they’ll re-release some “anniversary” Dime models...?

    Yeah...the USA ones have shot up big time the last ten years...they were a badass investment for the few who own one, apparently. I could’ve bought one for $1500 about 8-9 years ago- wish I would’ve. I had a hard time shelling out for my Prestige’s...that’s collector shit

    While my personal stereotype of a Nickelback fan is less than complimentary...

    My personal stereotype of a Pantera fan is the warehouse temp that's always having car trouble keeping him from coming in so he can't pay his child support and he always talks about high school and you think how the hell long ago was this dude in high school

    Dime was/is an icon. His style, riffs, gear, all of it were his own and that is a rare breed. There is no mistaking Dime.

    Dime will forever be a legend, and Pantera will always be in my top 5 favorite bands of all time, if not top 2.

    I love pretty much all of Pantera's albums. Pantera was a huge influence for me when I was first learning guitar. I still play Walk and Cemetery gates pretty regularly, same with some of dime's riffs from damageplan. Nickelback is fucking trash other than the dark horse album, which is tolerable.

    Learned to use my pinky from a vid of his when I first started playing. He stressed how important it was to start out that way.

    Never liked his tone, but he could rip, was always super clean, and had swagger.
