I couldn't believe this when I heard the new all those years ago. I thought it was a prank because it happened on the same day John Lennon was shot
and killed. Then I read the news.
Dime was indeed one hundred percent genuine. If he saw you in a bar without a drink, he'd make sure you had one in about two seconds. We used to go
see Pantera at the legendary, infamous Joe's Garage on the west side of Fort Worth, TX. It was around the time "Power Metal" came out. I was 17 and
Pantera was where the fun was. I mean they really, really knew how to have fun. You know all those 80s movies with the uber exciting parties you
always wished were real? That's what Pantera was like.
And then they got signed and went on tour and DFW was never the same. I saw Dime after they got back from Russia. He bought me a drink. The drink was
ON FIRE. I didn't know what to do with it.
It's also sad that Ab, Joe's Garage's owner, was ALSO shot and killed. One of his tenants (he was a landlord) robbed him and killed him.
