The Year in Rock MTV 1987.
I was only 13 but feel old as shit...
It also covers movies and fashion.
I've seen all this. Pantera has been humping it out for years, and deserves all the due respects. Darrell should have joined Megadeth. Would have been better than Damageplan.
I fondly remember that stuff
I support this thread.
Good night and good luck. bye
If Dave would have brought Vinnie Paul the brick wall he would have joined. I can't even imagine that. Dime/Vin were the ultimate locked in groove.
One of my favorites of 1987.
I couldn't agree more, but it would have saved Darrell and Vinnie could've done Hell Ya. Darrel would've killed on Holy Wars or Wake up Dead. Mustaine may be a douche, but don't say it wouldn't have given Darrell some chop room and a better resume. I wish Pantera had never gone away, I think they were getting better.
Dimebag was offered the job before Cowboys From Hell was released. If he joined Megadeth, there wouldn't have been a Pantera after Power Metal.
OK, I guess you got me there. I still think Dime belonged somewhere else. I know Vinnie was a great drummer, but neither of them had ever played with anyone else. I think it may have brought out the best.
Possibly, but if that meant no Vulgar Display Of Power or Far Beyond Driven, I'll take a pass.
I don't think it mattered too much what they did as long as they stuck together. They never over-complicated shit. Neither of them. Every groove was a perfect match with drums/bass against the guitar. That being said Pat wasn't right for them as a singer and Dime changing his sound to tube amps just never sounded like him. I know they were trying to distance themselves from the past but it just wasn't quite right. I really think that experiment was about to send them back to their roots and something good was gonna happen but we will never know.
And Rust in Peace is a fucking masterpiece. The Nick/Marty lineup is my fav Megadeth for sure. I have Vulgar and Rust as my #1 and #2 and they flip flop depending on the day.
...continuing to interrupt thread with my favorite albums of 1987.
I've been drinking. Totally forgot about the timeline thing. You are correct. I love FBD and The Great Southern Trendkill so much. I wouldn't want to ever do without. Vulgar Display is what I used to play for friends who liked the Black album too much. I lost some friends, but fuck 'em all. (As Metallica would say)
The guy who filmed this needs to be shot in the head just like Dime.
Agree 100% about Rust. Saw that lineup on the Clash Of The Titans tour at MSG in 1991. So fucking awesome.
I love Rust In Peace. The 1st time I heard Holy Wars, I stepped up my game as a guitarist. I am a huge fan of Peace Sells though, as that was my first Megadave album.
I'm not a complete gearhead. But did he use solid state Randalls for all that stuff? Live and recordings?
