Biography, rock and roll, history.
Ex-Pantera guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott was attacked and murdered while performing with his new band Damageplan on December 8, 2004. While the media focused only on the crime, several unsung heroes remained forgotten. This is the story of three brave men who made a difference in countless lives by paying the price with their own.
While the book explores the background and motive of the killer who callously took the lives of these four innocent people, the focus goes far beyond the specifics of the crime. It is part rock 'n' roll history, part true-crime and part biography. The result is a modern-day inspirational chronicle of good versus evil. While at times graphic in its content, the intention isn't to shock or sensationalize, but rather to clearly articulate the raw courage and selflessness of those who paid the ultimate price. Jeffery "Mayhem" Thompson, Nathan Bray and Erin Halk, sharing Darrell Abbott's passion for live, love and music, will never be forgotten.
Augmented by 240 photos, most never published, readers will meet the heroes, the police officers, paramedics, fans and venue employees who worked together to try to save lives and demonstrate compassion. This book delivers a powerful, inspirational and educational message that will touch all who turn its pages.
