Disabled Guitarist Marco Laudato and his Passion of Metal – Video Tribute Dedicated to Dimebag Darrel and Vinnie Paul

“This Love” of Metal
Because who has Passion lift the world!

This is the Story of Marco Laudato, alias Markbag_33, a disabled guitarist who just recently made a video tribute of “This Love” dedicated to Dimebag Darrel and Vinnie Paul (Pantera).

Here is a Statement from Marco:

Without Pantera, Dimebag and Vinnie in particular, today I would not be who I am: the real me, a free man who, despite the Handicap, is not afraid to open his soul to Music. Nothing is impossibile! If you really want something you’ll find a way to achieve it…at any cost. No matter how and when and if…because who has Passion lift the world. RIP Dimebag Darrel and Vinnie Paul

The project is realized by Marco Laudato (IT) with the support of Alberto Castaño, vocalist of the Spanish band DISPLAY OF POWER (TRIBUTE TO PANTERA EVER SINCE 2002).

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
