Friday Top 10: Best looking guitars

That’s right people… It’s that time again… You know, where I rate instruments by their appearance and you all get pissed off.

This is the follow-up to my very popular Friday Top 10 about ugly guitars. I was supposed to write this last week, but it was April 1st so we decided to do something special for that day.

But now, without further ado, make the jump and get ready for my very biased opinions!


Friday Top 10: Ugliest guitars

Guitars are beautiful and they make anyone look good. But what happens when some musicians get extremely ugly ones? Is it because they lack good taste or do they just want to stand out?

Either way, some guitars used by known musicians are atrocious looking, and that’s what this Top 10 is all about. Make the jump and let’s laugh at some hideous instruments.

Note: This top is based solely on aesthetics (it means ‘looks’ for all you SOAD fans). It has nothing to do with price, quality or the guitarists themselves. It is based on what I consider ‘ugly looking’ instruments.

Everybody on? Good. Great. Grand. Wonderful.

*UPDATE*: Dear trolls and nitpickers, I have written my follow-up to this article: Top 10 Best looking guitars. Enjoy!


The fallen heroes

Revolver‘s January issue has one of the greatest covers ever. It portrays some of metal’s biggest heroes, who sadly left this world a bit too early.

The drawing is by J.G. Jones and it depicts Ronnie James Dio, Peter Steele, Dimebag, Cliff Burton and Randy Rhoads amongst others.

You can buy the issue and a special Dimebag commemorative coin here. Full cover after the jump.


6 years ago Dimebag Darrell was murdered…

6 years ago today, Dimebag Darrell Lance Abbott, guitarist for Pantera and Damageplan was murdered on stage during a Damageplan concert in Columbus, Ohio.

May he rest in peace and what better way to celebrate the life of Dimebag than to spend your day listening to Pantera? None. Getcha Pull!

Watch VH1’s Behind the Music: Pantera after the jump.


An 8 Minute video on the deaths of Dimebag and Paul Gray

Norwegian TV show “Lydverket” (web site) aired a mini-documentary about the deaths of “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott (PANTERA, SLIPKNOT) and Paul Gray (SLIPKNOT). During the eight-minute segment, which can be viewed below (with English subtitles), Vinnie Paul Abbott (PANTERA, HELLYEAH) and Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT, STONE SOUR) spoke openly about how they dealt with the losses of their bandmembers and friends, and in Vinnie’s case, his brother.

Usually, I really don’t like to just copy-and-paste news from another source, Blabbermouth in this case, but I don’t have a better description for the video myself, so I just did it now.

I’ve read and seen a lot about the death of Dimebag Darrell but I thought the video was pretty powerful and touching so it’s definitely worth a watch. Do so after the jump.
