The autobiography of the bassist of Pantera, one of the most successful heavy metal bands of all time
Few heavy metal acts survived the turmoil of the early 1990s music scene. Pantera, featuring the peerless guitar playing of the late "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott, was different. Instead of humoring the market, the band demanded that the audience come to them by releasing a series of fiercely uncompromising platinum albums, including Vulgar Display of Power and Far Beyond Driven-albums that sold millions of copies despite minimal airplay.
This is the previously untold story behind one of the most influential bands in heavy metal history, written by the man best qualified to tell the truth about those incredible and often difficult years of fame, excess, and tragedy.

Good Read posted by a Big Fan
This is a good book to read if you like Rock 'n' Roll biographies or auto-biographies. Gives insight to a band that I truly loved and still love to this day. I would be lying if I said that the breakup of Pantera was anything less than a disappointment followed by a Horrible tragedy. Every book leaves something to be desired. 4 Stars is a fair rating.
