Flashback: Pantera Christmas Card 1991

Once upon a time, you could write a letter to bands and if the stars aligned properly, you'd be added to their mailing list. The younger and less popular the band was, the better your odds were for receiving something from the band. I think I had Prodigy at this point, but it was well before the internet was widely used, and long before bands would spam you to death with stupid emails put together by someone who seemingly forgot what it's like to be a fan. But I digress.

At that age, when something would arrive in the mail for me, it was always cause for excitement. If that something was music related: bootleg audio/video, music mags, metal zines, band fanclub stuff, I'd go ape shit. And even though I wasn't that big a fan of Cowboys From Hell, I was pretty amazed when this showed up in the mail.

"Now On Tour With Skid Row"

Vulgar Display of Power would be released in early February, and a couple weeks later we saw them live at the Vic for the record release show and launch of the tour.


Pantera with....Fates Warning?


A lucky choice of places to eat allowed us to meet 3/4 of Pantera before the show. But that's another story for another time.
