Prime Cuts: Dimebag Darrell Chooses His 12 Favorite Tunes in 1993 Guitar World Feature
In 1993, Pantera's six-shooting Texas tornado pumped up his 12 favorite tunes.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Although the original 1993 GW story promised 12 songs, there actually were 13 songs in the piece. Here's the bonus 13th song:
BAND: ZZ Top
ALBUM: Fandango! (Warner Bros., 1975)
GUITARIST: Billy Gibbons
"I'm not a super blues player, but I was exposed to the Texas blues sound while I was growing up, and that definitely rubbed off on me.
"To me, blues is more of a feel and a vibe, rather than sitting there and saying, 'Well, I'm gonna play bluesy now.' And Billy definitely plays with feeling on 'Tush.' My favorite thing about it is where he lets that one note ring out until it dies off, then gets that rattling noise on the frets."
