Actually, I'll have to disagree. I'm not a big Pantera/Dime fan, but the guy could play live. I mean, he really had the skills to do his stuff. We're not talking Dragonforce here.

Whether it's laughable or irrational, this is the path that ALL great men walk!
If there's a wall in our way, we'll destroy it!
If there's no road, we'll pave it with our own hands!
The magma in our hearts is blazing like flames!
Who the hell do you think we are?
