It was Dec 8th...2004....I will never forget where I was when I heard the news...not to sound cheesy or dramatic about it...but quite frankly that moment still haunts me to this day....I received a call from a good friend of mine who was a huge fan of Pantera and still is to this day...he was so rattled about it he could hardly speak...I recall vividly that he simply told me to turn on my tv and check out mtv...the second I started to process what had happened one thing occurred to me sharply...and that was the simple fact that the world had lost an incredible artist...an amazing guitarist who had yet to even fully bloom....today would have been Dimebad Darrel's 49th birthday....Happy birtday my friend and you have no idea how much we miss you.

Happy 72nd birthday to Robert De Niro!! He is easily one on my all time favorite actors...there is no one and I mean NO ONE who can play a mob guy like he does....and let's face it....he was nothing short of INCREDIBLE in Cape Fear....did you know it has been 25 years since the release of Goodfellas?? Can you believe that? Some of the main cast members from Goodfellas recently got together for a reunion of sorts and of course Robert De Niro was there...click here to check it out! Rick
