“The Tapes Archive”has uploaded a previously unpublished interview with late PANTERA guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott. At the time of this chat in 1992, Dimebag was 25 years old and was out on tour in support of PANTERA‘s “Vulgar Display Of Power” album. In the interview, Dimebag talks about his guitar trick that he wants everyone to learn; how Randy Rhoads, Eddie Van Halen and Ace Frehley were his influences; how great his dad was; and how PANTERA writes their music.
The interview was conducted by Pete Prown, a veteran music journalist who has interviewed the world’s top guitarists for over 35 years. He’s currently music editor at Vintage Guitar magazine and editor of the Legends Of Rock Guitar Facebook page. His work has appeared in Guitar Shop, Guitar For The Practicing Musician and Guitar Player magazine, among other titles.
