Great festival for people who aer open minded about music, last year they had BB King there which was an awesome treat, tickets were just way to much as they usually are. Most of the groups generally are folk rock or indy.

And the reason Down wants to play this is because to the best of my knowledge it has sold out every year and the bands make a sh** ton of money. Not to mention the posibility for new fans given the wide range of musical tastes in the crowd.

Plus anyone paying $200+ for a ticket to this is generally open midned enough about music that it can be assumed that a good band can win over nearly everyone in said crowd as a future record/merch buying fan.

LOL @ branded's comment.... I think Down is great, and they put on a hell of a live show. I would gladly go see them again LIVE. No one could have predicted Pantera's future, so post 9, you are simply speculating. The real fact of the matter is every band no matter how good they are, eventually disband, and solely blaming Phil Anselmo for the dissolution of Pantera is ridiculous, in my opinion. Phil fuxxed up, that has already been said thousands of times, and is well documented, but your logic is flawed... I like Pantera, but they are not the be all, end all metal band. Enough with the hero worship, already. Dime was one of the great metal guitarists, but certainly not the best of all time, and I am from Texas. Yet, Pantera, is not my favorite metal band.

What gets me about the whole Phil/Dimebag thing is this. How many bands implode in the fashion that Pantera did? Tons. Lots of bands break up due to infighting. And for all those who say it's Phil's fault Dime was shot it must be nice to rely on that hindsight, which by the way is always 20/20 I'm told. One man knew Dime was going to die, and the bastard got his head blown off after he did it. Phil made alot of sh**ty comments that he needs to work out on his own. He spewed off in typical tough-guy, Phil fashion without thinking. I'm in no way defending that, but no one knew how the future was going to play out. Why not say it was the managers fault for booking the show?
Or the doorman's fault for letting the guy in? Hell, if he wasn't sold a car maybe he wouldn't have made it to the club on time, let's blame the salesman. If we are going to take these stretches of the imagination, lets just blame the marines for training the guy. Or his mother for giving birth.

One guy took a gun to a club, and shot a great musician. So unless you can predict the future and tell me otherwise, I'll blame that dude.

I checked out that line up and there were about 8-10 bands I wouldn't mind seeing. Not to mention I bet there are quite a few broads who will show up to this kind of festival looking for someone free love since the $200 ticket includes camping for three nights. It would be a hell of a road trip....

Obvious troll is obvious. Anyone who comes to this site and smacktalks Dimebag is just trying to start sh**. Ignore it. It's not our fault his parents don't pay him any attention.

Down kicks ass. If people weren't listening, we wouldn't be reading. No matter what some people might think about Phil, which is pretty much bullsh** anyway, the band has a talented line-up making some great southern infuenced metal. Pepper, Rex, Jimmy and Kirk are well established in the metal heirarchy. 3 great albums so far.

I'm saying Nathan Gale pulled the trigger. A mentally sick man shot and killed Darrell Abbott. Perhaps if you have any leads to the connection between Phil and the shooting you should go to the authorities. Maybe help them open the investigation back up. Apparently they thought the case was closed.

It might be a good idea to be clearer on my side. Firstly, as a bassist and guitarist, I idolized Dimebag and Rex as a teen. I followed Pantera's progress throughout each album. Even when they started Damageplan I kinda followed how that career move went. Always wanting to know what Dime was working on or lending his amazing talent as a guitarist to.

That said, I think Phil said some hateful, sh**ty things about him. But name-calling and mudslinging aren't murder. Yeah. it sucks, but it is what it is. And let's be honest here, I'm sure it wasn't as one-sided as the media would have us believe. I feel the whole situation is tragic, and the magazines and media fed the fire, but it ended when a guy who was sick in the head took his own version of things WAY too far. Sometimes it is as simple as a guy walking into a place and pulling a trigger. Doesn't make it easier, but it happened. And the world is a bit lesser for it.

I think VH1 is partly to blame. A lot of (mostly) younger people who weren't into Pantera in the ninteies watch "Rita Haley presents Pantera:Behind the Music" and think that it must all be Phil's fault because Rita clearly makes that out to be the case. I vowed to never watch VH1 after that cash grab because it lacked any insight into the band and was extremely rusehed and distasteful. Instead of celebrating the band's legacy they capitalized on the animosity following the tragedy.
Dime was the kind of guy who had literally hundreds of friends with metal credibility. Instead they settled with Zakk Wlyde and Scott Ian, aka the VH1 whore.

I'm not saying you're stupid or insulting you in anyway. It's just conversation. If you have an opinion, by all means, jump in. But I would think you'd want an opinion based in fact, instead of mis-focused anger. Say you hate Phil all you want. Talk all the sh** you want about him. I'm just saying despite what was said, we all know who pulled the trigger that night. In fact, that guy is who spit in my cheerios :)

Go to that other board Fred if you want to start garbage with everyone. Bg1 happens to be part of the metal scene, as a vocalist for Blindgreed. He is also one hell of a guy/online friend.

Also anybody who blames Phil for Dime's death is a heartless, unrealsitic person. Down are f***ing awesome, you cannot judge music by any other means than if it is good or not good. Past events are irrelevant to whether a band's music is good or not; and Down produce some of the purest, hard hitting metal around today and are f***ing AWESOME live. Phil still has his stage presence and all 3 Down albums are amazing. I personally don't think their blues sound sounds much like Pantera so stop comparing them.

You guys know I respect your opinions, but Bruce has some great songs. I'm not talking the commercial stuff you hear on the radio, but alot of his more obscure stuff. He writes some very emotional, personal lyrics which reflect alot about life here in the States. I'm not saying you are wrong for disliking him, that's not my style, just that there might be more to his music than what you've heard. Songs like "The River" or almost anything off "Ghost of Tom Joad" for example. To be clear though, I dislike just about everything he has done that is popular or played on the radio.

And I don't begrudge anyone their opinion on music, we like what we like. Others might not like singer/songwriter stuff the way I do. You guys know I always respect that.

Wether i'm from Malaysia or from the U.S.A(United states of a$$hole's).The main thing is that Down is a stupid band.Phil is suitable to become the next member of the Backstreet Boys.And the rest of the band can become male strippers for gay bars across America.
I hope somebody will try and shoot that low-life bastard Lars Ulrich.Personally i think he can become a Richard Simmons blowjob b****.He's personal taste of boxers makes him a suitable candidate to become Richard Simmons personal whore.

f*** Metallica and f*** U b****.Your band are the same with Down.Nobody listen to that ship-wrecked metal posers musucians anymore.Slayer is the best metal band of all time.Amen to that folks.

i don't think phil would make it as a backstreet boy, he's way too agressive vocally, that would be a bad mix of talent, and i don't think i want to see kirk windstein strip...now if sexy t was still in the band that would be a different story

Hei Machine Man,

Please shut the f*** up and f*** off from this site.We dont need morons like you and sharing in your pathetic opinion.Everybody knows that Down is a great band.They have 3 solid album to support that achivement.And they live performance are sick as hell.These guys can bring the house down with blues-metal music.Pepper Kennan riffs are a killer.He has done a great job with Down then he has done with COC.I hope this band will go on forever.
