Charity-leeching off Dime’s name.. AH gain. If they wanted to create a
positive change for children in Dime’s name, the last thing you want to
promote to kids is the notion of de-evolving into a tatooed alcoholic
pot-smoking rock star since that’s what led to Darrel’s murder. Besides
promoting an offshore manufacturer that only survives off Chinese slave
labor does this ride do anything FOR Darrel’s memory or the needy in Dallas
suburbs? Think about it, it’s all about fucking Elliot isn’t it.
Getting tattooed and smoking pot isn’t what led Dime to his grave. That was
done by some psycho while Darrell was playing kick-ass music for a
receptive crowd. If you’re gonna insult the program get your fucking facts
straight. And it isn’t “all about Elliot”. “Ride for Dime” is a non profit
organization that raises money for kids who have been abused and neglected.
If you read the fucking description or even looked up the event before you
shot your mouth off, you’d know that.
What would Dime do for the kids of Dallas.. that’s the point: plus all the
donations get written off Elliot’s taxes! Dime’s music was enjoyable, but
his life and lifestyle was not a good role model for children, but one
thing Elliot could do is get the town of origin correct if it’s got
anything to do with the Abbot name. As a fan I would tell Vinnie the same
thing to his face, help the kids of Dallas first before you tinkertoy with
the notion of tossing money at the inbreds of the Swamp Coast.
Darrel Abbot lived for himself. Celebrating the music by his group in
remembrance is one thing of which, when considered in the vast scope of
American music wasn’t much in catalogue or quantity at all, yet celebrating
his person is totally inappropriate. Teachers, scout leaders, relatives and
family who live life as an example to others are appropriate role models.
But when they smoke dope, do lines, drink until they’re shitfaced they are
not. Which role do you play before others?
His life was one of the worst examples of how to enjoy success in the
entertainment industry. He’s dead. Nothing worth memorializing to celebrate
except for the purpose of selling guitars and music products in his name.
He was Zelinsky’s friend. Elliot basically used the relationship Dean began
with Dime to exploit his celebrity. Abbot only approved the Razorback to
carry his name, Zelinsky designed it. When Zelinsky got involved, Dime was
a Washburn endorsee because Elliot’s company forgot how to make a guitar
the right way. And now we see how today Elliot’s example of how to ruin the
relationship with the Abbot estate. Elliot’s interest is in promoting Dean
in any event.
@PoofDuddy, do yr’ homework. “In May 2007, Dime was chosen as an inductee
for the famed Hollywood’s RockWalk at Hollywood Guitar Center Sunset Blvd.
After the induction, to further honor “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott was the Six
String Masterpieces auction held to benefit Little Kids Rock. The auction
raised enough funds to open two chapters in Dime’s name. One chapter in
Tampa, near Dean Guitars’ headquarters, Dimebag’s guitar of choice, and the
other chapter in Dimebag’s hometown of Dallas, TX.”
@PoofDuddy just google “Dallas Chapter Of LITTLE KIDS ROCK In Honor Of
‘DIMEBAG’ DARRELL ABBOTT – Feb. 18, 2008″ and you’ll see. Also, FYI: It was
Elliott who signed Dime to Dean Guitars. And Dime did design the Razorback
and it was Elliott, NOT Dean Z who funded the project for Dime. People fail
to give Elliott credit where it’s due, Elliott brought Dean out of the
ashes in 97 when he purchased it from Oscar Medeiros who gained ownership
of the brand in the late 1980s. All easy info to find.
Dime signed to Washburn because Dean had gone out of business. Elliott was
the guy who brought Dean back into business in the late 90’s and then
signed Dime and brought Dean Z on board. Also Dean makes USA guitars and
almost every major brand in the world makes over seas guitars, Your facts
are so off the mark it’s ridiculous. Go do something positive.
Elliot was lost his ass on the deal for 6 years until hiring Zelinsky to
teach him how to build guitars. Unfortunately, Elliot’s ratio of
import-to-USA models is like 500 Chinese and Korean guitars to 1 US made
and he’s therefore turned a once proud brand into rubbish. Mr Z quit
because of this and other problems with regard to quality, plus the fact
Elliot wants to play rock star like an adolescent – it’s a fact even on
Wikipedia look it up he’s a LOSER
Really? So it’s Elliot in those same home movies getting hugged and loved
on by Dimebag.. along with Dean Zelinsky, here on youtube no? NO. Elliot is
a ZERO. Has no understanding or personality, or craftsmanship. That’s why
his office manager runs the business while he’s running around the country
playing out with his childhood guitar heros. If Elliot wanted to sit behind
a desk and be responsible I bent he could sink it just like the company
he’s supposedly running.
That’s free promotional media courtesy of Elliot’s tax write-offs and it
has only Dime’s name attached posthumously. He had nothing to do with it
except getting PIMPED over the deal benefitting only Elliot.
