Randy Jackson is in a league of his own. Glenn Delaune used to back him up with a band called Gangster. The lead guitarist was my old roommate, name of Pat Bearb. I've never since meet a more solid guitar player. He died. I know Randy and Glenn, both super nice guys, both great talents.

Acid Bath never opened for Pantera. That show at UNO was with White Zombie and Eyehategod. Speaking of the LA metal scene, Eyehategod and Crowbar are the most influential by far. Not necessarily the most popular though.
