    Eh, its old news by now its hardly surprising any more... just today I was saying how the company won't just let the guy die.

    I could imagine right now they are working on a way to zombify his remains and make him play more shows with their guitars.

    You know that it's probably Dime's family who's authorizing all this shit, right? Dean is just the company that's been given the rights to produce it. You'd better believe that his family are continuing to live off Dime's name for as long as possible. (Not that it's a bad thing, but everyone is vilifying Dean for it, and the family is likely an equal partner.)

    Yes, but as I've pointed out before, Dime's family is only authorizing the use of Dime's name and likeness. Dean makes horrible products and THEN slaps Dime's image all over them. The blatant milking of Dime's legacy would be so much less unsavory if it were a respectable company doing the milking in the first place - but then, most respectable companies would have more class.

    This.

    I used to own a few Deans, and posted mucho on their board (which has also recently turned to shit) and... well... just, fuck this company, man. A friend of mine is endorsed by them, and they see him well, but I still think they're a shit company, and this Dimebag stuff it way beyond teh lulz now.

    Im sure Rita and Vinnie are the ones authorizing all of this. They are always with Dean guitars most of the time at the NAMM shows. I know for a fact Rita is trying to keep Krank amps from putting Dimes name on the amps that has his name or logo on it which is wierd because she didnt authrorize that. But he signed with Krank before he died and cameout with his sig. head. Now she is trying to put a stop to that.

    Yes they are, to make money off a dead family member. Either way you stick it, the family should have some class and say no.

    Yeah, it's really both Dean and Dime's family equally doing this. That makes it even worse in my eyes, because not only is Dean completely insulting Dime, Dime's family's allowing it :noplease:

    If they were asked about why some much of the Dime stuff the answer would be"This is what Dime would have wanted"... Shame Shame:nono:
