Description - Black Tooth Grin by Zac Crain

Black Tooth Grin is the first biography of Dimebag Darrell Abbott, the Texas-bred guitarist of the heavy metal band Pantera, who was murdered onstage in 2004 by a deranged fan24 years to the day after John Lennon met a similar fate. Darrell Abbott began as a Kiss-inspired teenage prodigy who won dozens of local talent contests. With his brother, drummer Vinnie Abbott, he formed Pantera, becoming one of the most popular bands of the 90s and selling millions of albums to an intensely devoted fan base. While the bands music was aggressive, Dime was outgoing, gregarious, and adored by everyone who knew him. From Panteras heyday to their implosion following singer Phil Anselmos heroin addiction to Darrells tragic end, Black Tooth Grin is a moving portrait of a great artist.
