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.
BAND: Van Halen
ALBUM: Van Halen (Warner Bros., 1978)
GUITARIST: Eddie Van Halen
"Van Halen was a huge influence on me, and 'Eruption' was the song that really leaped off that first Van Halen album. I was a little kid when I first heard it, and I couldn't believe how Eddie just ripped the strings off his guitar. He played with a fierce aggression — and his guitar sound was unbeatable. That dive bomb sound effect at the song's end sounded like the world was coming to an end. Because Eddie was so hardcore about his guitar, he made me look at the instrument in a different way — more as a tool to screw around with than something you must play very carefully."
