KISS have dedicated the third issue of their official authorized quarterly magazine to the memory of PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott, who was gunned down by a deranged "fan" in early December. A short note from KISS guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley posted on the magazine's "Table of Contents" page reads as follows:"You only had to hear Dime play to know his conviction and commitment to pursuing his passion without compromise. You only had to see his stance onstage, guitar in hand, hair flying, to know that he was the blueprint that all others who wanted to share his domain would have to follow. He did it his way. As always, when those who are truly weak seek to use force to destroy what they do not agree with, that which they try to silence becomes even louder, deafening the non-believers and blasting its way into immortality. Cheating one madman and death, Dime will live larger and louder than ever."
