Can someone tell me something? I went to see Pantera during the tour supporting Vulgar Display and I could freaking swear that the recently deceased was then known as "Diamond." Am I making this up?

The Diamond nickname came from when he was in a glam-rock band. It wasn't really the right image for Pantera so it turned to Dimebag.

ahh interesting! good to know..i always wondered that...what glam rock band was he in.

Yep Pantera was a hair band until that fad died out and they jumped on the next one. They did do a very nice cover of Black Sabbath's Planet Caravan though.

They basically created the next one, at least as far as being a commerical product. Cowboys From Hell (and even moreso Vulgar Display) was one of the loudest wake-up calls that hard rock ever received.
