Missing Dimebag today on his birthday.
Dimebag is quite possibly the finest combination of precision and power the 6-string has ever seen. His chops defined the “power groove” that drove Pantera to the top of the metal music world in the 90s. Dime’s leads were beyond shred. His rhythm work infections.
Those who knew Dimebag Darrell Abbott were struck by his genuine love of life and music., nobody lived it louder!!!
This blog picture from 2005 is from our original Dimebag Darrell Rock Iconz® Statue design. This sells for crazy $ on the secondary markets when you can find it mint in box.
Shred in peace brother…
Pantera fans will be glad to know that we have been hard at work on a new Rock Iconz® Ltd. Edition statue set for Pantera. We will be rolling that out this fall…StayTuned.
Here’s’ a link to see some of KnuckleBonz Rock Iconz®, 3D Vinyl® and On Tour™ Collectibles officially licensed with Pantera.
Hopefully you saw the launch the newest additon to our Rock Iconz On Tour® Ltd. Edition Collectible Series, Pantera Cowboys from Hell Road Case and Stage Prop. This limited editon is a super short production run of only 500. It’s almost SOLD OUT as we write this blog.
Thought we would share the package design artwork that was approved by Pantera managemnt last week. Note the snap shots on the back from the Pantera Home Video 2. If you a Pantera from fan “the day,” you know these videos by heart. But in case you came to the party late and have not seen them, these were home videos taken by the band, a bunch by Dimebag Darrell, he was VLOGGING before there was such a thing. The snap shots show the band buiding the huge MF Leaf stage props and some of the live shots from the show here they brought this on stage…so cool and goofy fun.
You can Pre-Order the Pantera Cowboys from Hell Road Case Here.
It ships with the distressed road case, MF Leaf Stage Prop an the Cownboys from Hell stage backdrop.
On this day in 1968 Rock Iconz® Philip was born on his way to a life and career of heaviness that spans some of our favorite bands. Of course we have the “power groove” of the mightly Pantera, but we invite you to check our Phil’s other projects that include Down, Superjoint Ritual and Philip H. Anselmo and the Illegals.
We have been fortunate to create a few KnuckleBonz® Collectibles projects working with band managment and Philip. Most are SOLD OUT, but you can check the work out here. Pantera at KnuckleBonz.com
Pre-Order the new Rock Iconz On Tour Cowboys from Hell road case, MJ Leaf stage prop and backdrop here.
Hope to see Phil out with one of these bands as US Touring roars back to life.
On this day in 1994 Pantera showed the music world that metal was not just a “sub-genre”, but was #1 in music. Pantera’s “Far Beyond Driven” became the 1st true heavy metal record to debut in the US. What’s super impressive is that Phillip Anselmo, Dimebag Darrell, Vinnie Paul Abbott and Rex Brown took no steps backwards to achieve this commercial success. They actually turned up the heaviness…I’m Broken!!!
This album art proved a real challenge for our 3D Vinyl Limited Edition Statue Series. We decided to stray for the tradition 12×12 album oriented format and created a hybrid that brings the great cover photographic treatment to a desk or shelf mount display. This KnuckleBonz collectible is still in pre-order and super hot. Check it out here to be one of only 1994 fans that will own this piece of metal music art: https://knucklebonz.com/product-category/pantera/
The 1st wave for Pantera Far Beyond Driven is finished and in route to our US warehouse. We expect it to hit the US ports in April and then must clear customs to begin the short truck ride to the KnuckleBonz warehouse. Stay tuned here for update…DOn;t Miss Out!
Rock Hard! Kbonz
