Philip H Anselmo; On Behalf of Darrell Lance Abbott-Pt. I

Pantera/Down/Superjoint Ritual Frontman Phil Anselmo has shared his thoughts of late concerning Dimebag Darrell's murder and Pantera of old at length. Here's his posting to his own philanselmo.com:

Philip H Anselmo; On Behalf of Darrell Lance Abbott-Pt. I

I’ve been stumbling around in a coma of loss. No truer lyric has been written than “You don’t know what you’ve got, ‘til it’s gone.” To explain my side of things with the hiatus of Pantera, please give me a moment and think about what I say. Think.

I joined the band in late ‘86/early ‘87, and the chemistry clicked like a vice grip, we hit it off like four bad mother fuckers could. Perfection. Dime, Vince and Rex could play fucking anything. You pick the style, they could pull it off. So in reality we had to find out where our musical hearts lay strongest. After short deliberation, our intention was to be the most devastating ‘hard core-heavy metal’ band in the world.

You know, when the so called heavy metal press first got wind of ‘Cowboys from Hell’ they were absolutely unsure what to think. More bad reviews than good at the time. The Reason? They had never heard a band quite like us before, and I can’t blame the press or anyone for not hearing the full experience, but there were flashes in songs like ‘Primal Concrete Sledge’, and “Message in Blood’. Once again as I have said before, the press remained basically unimpressed, BUT, with the heavy metal audience, the phenomenon of Pantera had already begun. Slowly but surely, the fan base grew larger and larger (the best fans in the world I say still!)

The LP that I believe was the first ‘true’ Pantera LP was our second major release ‘Vulgar Display of Power’. As a band, our brotherhood and obvious originality and musicianship cemented us as one of the most feared and loved bands ever to step on a stage. That, is what we all lived for. We figured as long as our awesome audience was moved (head banging, skanking, stage diving, of course) we would play for us and them. Of course we had a deep connection with both our music and our audience, and we were also very different, image and attitude wise… It was extremely rare to see a lead vocalist or anyone with a shaved head unless you looked deep into the underground with bands like the Cro-Mags, Agnostic Front, Rose Tattoo, etc…(I didn’t mean to leave anyone out). The difference between us and these great bands was the fact that we also had an insanely great guitar player who was respected alongside the best of the best, and a rhythm section so unique and tight, goddamn they were tight, tight is and always will be the word. I guarantee throughout our 17 year existence it would be extremely difficult to have one memory of Rex or Vince messing up or playing a part wrong ever. That to some people may be amazing or impossible, however I mean what I say 100 times over. They were the best damn musicians I’d ever seen or heard. Period.

With ’Far Beyond Driven’, our 3rd major offering, going to #1 on the Billboard top #200, it seems appropriate to say that some Rock Magazines were taking notice, one way or another. Guitar magazines throughout the world were right on the money by calling Dimebag the best axe man of the time. That was absolutely true and within his lead style, influenced by the likes of Eddie Van Halen, Randy Rhodes, Ace Frehley, and himself (it’s true, I believe most all great lead guitar players have their own style to hear and influence. By god Darrell had that type of talent and then some). His rhythms he came up with, in ways, probably became even more influential. His influences were extremely varied and unique from guys like James Hetfield (Metallica), Kerry King and Jeff Hannemen (Slayer), Judas Priest to Motorhead, AC/DC, ZZ top, Robin Trower and even some of the ultra underground bands I would play him. In all honesty he preferred a more accomplished guitar player than some of the rawer sloppier stuff that I adored, but what he did love about the rawer stuff was its all out assault on the ears. Bless him, he did love that. Within his style he commanded and demanded the best out of himself, and all of us around him. So I will say to everyone in Texas that ever called me a friend, and especially all of my brothers that helped work with us as Pantera on the road crew; I love all of you. To the fans in Texas, and the rest across America and the world, beware of the shit you read in rock magazines. When these pathetically titled ‘journalists’ (not all of them, but a lot still), had finally caught on to the fact that we, Pantera, had beaten all the odds a band could, and the press had no choice but to build us up until it seemed that they were all of a sudden desperate to make us supermen in the magazines, it was an assignment. It wasn’t true to them, they were getting paid for it. We weren’t supermen, just a great band. During our whole career, there were always those interviews where you could tell that the ’journalist’ didn’t know shit about our band, using wrong facts, whether they made us look good or bad, not knowing a thing about our characters, our musicianship, or our careers; asking the same questions, or as ’journalists’ love to do, just plain making up whatever they wanted. For every ‘journalist’ out there, these facts may or may not fit in with the way you personally do your work , but I know and so the fuck do you that this load of bullshit behavior, that thousands of fans read on a regular basis, is absolutely irresponsible, and it’s obvious that you truly don’t care about your responsibilities to the fans, or how many lives you truly destroy. It’s all about what sells magazines, isn’t it?

A month has gone by since we, his former band mates, his current band mates, his friends and fans around the world, have lost Dimebag. I can’t necessarily speak for them, but for me, it’s the first thing that comes to mind when I awake, if I sleep at all, still. It is also the last thing I think about as I lay down to rest. God damn it still hurts me. I want to be there for Vinnie Paul no matter how long it takes. I want to be there for Rita if she’ll have me. I want to be there for the Kat and the rest of the crew as well, people that have been a part of my life for 17 ½ years. Once again, I’m hoping my biggest hope; that they realize that the bad stuff written about our bands and ourselves was coerced nonsense made to sell magazines. Bare with me, please. I beg you all. By the way, all of the level headed fans that write in and offer support, that in itself is the best therapy I’ve received yet. I have considered retirement because of a broken heart, but also in my heart, I cannot let my fans down. As the days go by I realize that I’m at war with some things inside of myself, that I don’t mind sharing with you: I always, truly always, no matter if it was my own dreams just coming to the surface, if we, just the four of us, were to sit in a room together, we’d have been laughing, crying, and laughing again. The weight of the world would be lifted off of our shoulder as we hugged each other. Play together again? I have a suspicion that our fans would demand some type of reunion. My god I thought of that so many times and because what our fans wanted, they usually got. It may have taken a little longer, but think about how long it took the original Black Sabbath to play together again!?

Then in one night early December, 2004, an event changed the entire year and our entire lives into one of the cruelest sort. Some mentally disturbed individual …crushed the dream. He took one of the most talented, extroverted people ever to grace this earth. I’m crushed for the loss of my friend that I loved, for Vince his brother, for Jerry his father, for Rita his life companion, for all of his good friends, for every music fan that was inspired and loved his playing; especially those who were lost or were injured that night we lost Darrell. None of what I have said will ever bring him back, and it hurts so bad. I add very humbly in hope that no one else out there ever has to go through something like this; Keep your loved ones close.

Yours Truly, I can take no more at this time-

Philip H Anselmo

yeah it f***ing sucks that they couldn't make up before dime died but I don't like all the sh** he is blaming on the press. Yeah that is part of it but there was still an obvious rift there. As far as them reuniting, I don't think that will happen and I really don't want it too. The ONLY guitarist that I would feel could replace dime, or at least walk in his shoes is Zakk. And I only feel that way because we all know how close dime and zakk were. This whole thing f***ing sucks. Hopefully Phil doesn't OD

In all reguards to Phil i think that everyone has to realise the long term emotion effects of drugs and the copious amounts not only phil but anybody has taken, the unmeasurable amount of pain of his loss and the realisation that yes its a bit too late now and that it has taken a tragedy like this to occure to snap phil out of his " i am god phase" that i believe hell who cares if he thinks hes god to me hes a god herion addiction or not, pantera or not......no one will understand what is going on in his mind or the people close to the victims on "Dime day" so i do belive no one can judge or lay any sort of negative commnet about what has happened, events like this take years even decades to get over and even then still the pain will always remain deep down. Phil take all the time you need do whatever you have to do to get your sh** together or to chill and take time off from everything and to make sure even though you most likely are aware to just remember even though you are a household name in our world and that thousands of people look up to you for inspiration and some a role model that you have the right to be an individual human being to not have to live up to peoples expectations...just be yourself man youve tought me that probably tought thousands that ....but remember that advice you give should be advice you follow yourself. \m/ ..........\,m/

It is f***ing dumb to mention anything like what you said Spanky. You shouldn't be here if you're going to be saying stuff like that.

Anyways, about what Phil said. It's terrible that Dimebag's death is the situation in which Phil opens up to fans and all others. I was hoping he would open up and say all the stuff he is saying now when Pantera got back together..and he cant blame the whole sh**-talking thing between Phil, Dime and Vinnie on the press. Yea, the media distorts ALOT of things, but if Phil hadn't started slinging mud in the first place, then relations would be a lot better, and the media wouldn't have had anything to report. It's really saddening that Phil hasn't had to chance to talk to and apologize to any of Dimebag's closest relatives and friends. I hope he gets that opportunity in his lifetime. Phil is definitely a changed man. I just wish it was more happy circumstances that he was changing under. He's got my respect now. Goddamn Dimebag Darrell, Its strange sitting here knowing you're gone forever. You and your music will live on FOREVER!! \m/

Im from NOLA and also pretty damn good friends with Phil and the rest of the Brotherhood for that much, If you dont belive me check out Bayou Underground in the links section. I know everyone has mixed fealings and for obvvious reasons. Dime was the best to ever pick up a guitar and it took me a while just to talk about the bullcrap this guy did. He will live forever in my mind. RIP...as well as Phil's. But as for Down, Im sure it will come in the future and Phil will be right there doing what he loves best. As for his fellow members, Kirk is going tour Crowbar then when he get's back from there he will then hook up with his other band Valume Nob. If you dont know these guys, I suggest ya check out my link on this site for I have a killa live interview with the Nob.

Dear Phil,

I want you to know that you are in all my prayers. You are going through a very difficult time and I sympathise with you. I respect you as a musician, I respect you as a human being, but most of all, I respect your courage in the face of adversity. Dimebag's death was caused by a mentally disturbed individual, not you. It's tragic but we will both see him again one day, I promise. If there is one thing in life that is certain, it is that GOD LOVES YOU PHIL. HE HAS GIVEN YOU THE GIFT OF MUSIC AND YOU WILL BE RICHLY REWARDED. You have enriched my life and the lives of countless others. Have faith in the Lord and believe me when I say that time will heal. The pain will still be there, however we will all be able to manage it a little better. All the best Phil, I give you strength and hope.

God loves you and knows you are innocent.

All my love,

George

Brad, I'm sure that a necrophiliac such as yourself would realize that it
would be just wonderful to be killed during lovemaking.

You would know it by the term "f**k you to death."

brads so funny and smart.........cus he can act like he doesnt get upset when people say something mean at/about him...in reality he's spent his whole life being a recluse and this is the only place he thinks he can pass himself off as smart / tough / cool...

he gets a hardon when he gets a rise out of some of you and has a private giggle, its alot like when he jacks himself off in his parents garage cus of the thrill of being caught....same thing here, oh i know him in real life by the way, though he'll deny it violently..anyway, back to the point...

he's so bored, sad socialy rejected and isolated and just full of man-child rage that he comes here...he has NOWHERE ELSE, to make you mad.....cus he HAS NO LIFE, and giggles because, he's really just not that happy with his life...

on a side note i like the expression "ill kick your d*** in the dirt" it's funny, and i just did it to brad aka muffy

Hahaha. This whole fight thing is pretty amusing. Nope, Brokenwings13, I haven't got anything close to a reply from either Grimm or Harkness. Not even an automated email. f***ing COWARDLY BASTARDS! You're probably right, BW13, if ever confronted with this, they'll hide behind the 1st. Con-Bud (post #53)- that is an insane line-up. Too bad I wont be in Cleveland on the 14th.

phil, i cant say im your biggest fan, but i can say i love you and your music just as much as the next dude who thinks he is your biggest fan. you have played the biggest role in my attitude in the past 6 years. i adore your music and i would follow you into the depths of hell and ive never even met you. all i can say is i always ignore what people say about you when its negative because through your music, i feel that i understand you(and your drug addiction)either way i never got to see PanterA and that my friend...........that kills me. I have seen you with Down in NC and w/ superjoint in MI at ozzfest and i have never had a feeling like those in my life.nor will i ever again unless you keep making music. I long for the day i can meet you and smoke with you mean nothing but love from this shattered soul for you man. PLAY ON PHIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear metal fans worldwide,

You might remember me from a few posts back. I just want to thank those who have given Phil courage and hope through this very difficult time. Let us not forget that beyond the image, beyond all the bias and opinions in heavy metal magazines, Dimebag Darrell was a wonderful human being. He loved Phil and Phil loved him. Sure they had their differences in the end; bitter words were exchanged and Dimebag was in another band. However, let us not forget that nobody is hurting right now like Phil Anselmo. His dear friend was murdered in cold blood (as was a a road crew member and fans) by a psychopath hell-bent on revenge. What is ironic was that this happened whilst Dimebag was on stage playing his beloved guitar. Dimebag was like a brother to Phil. They created music together, they smoked pot together, they drank together, and they felt each other's pain. They gave each other support when one of them was feeling down. They had the greatest respect imaginable for each other and what happens? A deranged individual suffering from schizophrenia decides he will "do Phil a favour" and murder the so- called "traitor" Dimebag. Let me tell you, he did not do Phil any favours. He merely tore a hole deep in his soul. His dear friend is just a memory now, blown apart by a madman. I just know that Dimebag is now in God's hands. He was a man who entertained us all for many years with his incredible virtuoso guitar playing. What gives the murderer the right to take away a wonderful man who just wanted to play his guitar and entertain fans? Phil needs all our support right now. As for those who think they can put him down, think again. If you think you are better than him, why don't you get on stage and prove your worth. He has proven not only his ability in music, but also his ability to show compassion, to forgive and to love. He loved Dimebag from the bottom of his heart. Phil and Dimebag will be back on stage some day, I promise! Phil has lost a friend, and we all need to reach out and offer our support. Imagine how you would feel if you lost your friend. I feel that Darrell was my friend. I still have nightmares. I am in utter disbelief of what has happened. I always ask why?

Rock on Phil. You are a genius and you are also a victim in this terrible tragedy. As for you Darrell, rest in peace my dear friend. We all love you......

God Bless,

George from Australia
