Dimevision, Vol.1 is a amazing tribute to a legend with a heart of gold. This dvd has tons of footage never seen beyond the pantera/damageplan camp before which is really a treat to see. This dvd shows what a fun guy dime was and will carry on his legecy in a proud way. When i got this dvd along with the rebel meets rebel cd it was a day long dimefest in my living room, now its time to await volume II get cha pull =)

If you enjoy the Vulgar Videos, you have to see this. It contains the expected dose of Dimebag pranks. But the best part is the old footage of him playing solos live on stage from the mid and late 80’s. He plays some Van Halen, Metallica, and Ozzy medleys that are totally killer. The photo galleries are very cool to see as well. It’s a shame that a guitarist with all that talent had to die so young and in such a horrible way. Thank God we still have videos like this so future metal fans can see just how great he really was. RIP Brother Dime
I thoroughly enjoyed getting to see the late, great Dimebag come to life again through this thoughtful dvd. The scenes of his guitar virtuosity will just take your breath away, plus the scenes of rock star craziness and fun will have you in stitches. The one where the guy tears up Dimebag’s lawn with his pick-up and smokes the tires until they pop while Dime and Damage Plan singer/ex-Halford guitarist,Pat Lachman, urge him on is priceless. I will never forget seeing Dime play with Pantera back in ‘95 on the Far Beyond Driven Tour. besides seeing my boyhood idols (and Dime’s) KISS in ‘79 I consider that my second best concert of all time. I can’t wait for a volume 2, until then we have this great dvd (even though some may be put off by the length, about 1hr15min) that shows another side of the man and the legend, Dimebag Darrell. RIP, brother & see you on the other side.
Whether you were a friend, Fan, Or just an admirer of Dimes personality this is for you! It’s a little over an hour long and is packed with a great flip flop of dimes guitar work to his indoor firework antics… Unfortuantely I never got a chance to meet dime but through Vince’s work and other film clippings I have met his personality.. As a hard rock musician myself he will always be a brother to me… And he will forever shoot bottle rockets at my soul.. U fans and friends know what I am talking about!
This DVD is laugh out loud funny, ear bleeding solo’s, underpriced (because it is priceless) and will leave you praying for more.. “SMOKE WEED!!!”
Hope more volumes will follow
Hopefully the first of many post Dime releases, this DVD isn’t so much about Pantera or Damageplan at all, but more of a celebration of what he was. The disc contains classic dimebag solos as well as his off the wall personality, playing pranks and stuff. I was suprised at how much old footage from the 80s they were able to pull out. There is one part where they show an early version of Pantera covering Metallica’s “Seek and Destroy” flawlessly! They even show some earlier solos that went on to become some classic Pantera guitar solos. Aside from the goofy nature of dime, the video gets tasteful with a nice montage of photos through the years and the hour and 15 minute video ends with an inspirational speech from dime that damn near brought me to tears. We may have lost a legend, but at least he lives on with this video!
