Dimebag Darrell Voted Best Metal Guitarist

(Gibson) For the last month Loudwire.com has been polling users on their Greatest Metal Guitarists and after a claimed 1 million votes were cast, late Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell has been voted #1.

The vote started with 32 of metal's finest axe-slingers and shredders. There are many talking points about the results - Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi and Ozzy's virtuoso Randy Rhoads were ousted by the likes of Avenged Sevenfold's Synyster Gates and Tool's Adam Jones.

Indeed, it was the Tool guitarist who made it all the way to the final round against Dimebag. Pantera's legions of fans came through in the final stretch, leading Dimebag to the ultimate victory. See how the votes progressed.
