This review is from: Black Tooth Grin: The High Life, Good Times and Tragic End of Dimebag Darrell Abbott (Paperback)
The only sources Zac Crain seemed to have for writing the book were the first Pantera singer Terry Glaze who it sounds like hadn't seen him in years, someone from Dimebag's guitar company and a few others who only knew him briefly. His brother Vinnie clearly had nothing to do with the book nor did his girlfriend or anyone else really close to him. The book is short and goes into little detail. One minute he's playing at home, the next Pantera are releasing an album. He doesn't have the little details, clearly only what he's taken from interviews from music magazines. He even describes lots of stuff from the Pantera home videos as stories.
The book is well written and enjoyable to read. But I really didn't learn much about the guy I didn't already know from seeing interviews with the band over the years. It would be great to see a Dimebag book that really had the stories from those close to him. This isn't it and is obviously just a cash in.
