Shirtless Saturday: Pantera’s Bodyguard Big Val & Crowbar’s Kirk Windstein

Not only was I heavily into hip-hop and really gay pop music back in the day, I was also into heavy rock and especially heavy metal (which explains my devout love for Fishbone, and my propensity to listen to other bands who creatively blend various forms of musical genres).  Posting about Drowning Pool RE-MIN-DED! me of all the heavy metal bands I used to obsess over.  As the late Dimebag was eerily in my previous post, it then RE-MIN-DED! me of my Pantera VHS videos which were then re-released in one DVD (Pantera: 3 Vulgar Videos From Hell).  There are four main reasons why I own this: (1) Pantera freaking rocks; (2) Handful of scenes of a shirtless Big Val (Head of Security, C.J. Bichekas); (3) Kirk Windstein from Crowbar (at the time) shows up as the Hulk!; and finally but not least (4) Drummer Vinnie Paul (who I’m saving for another day)…

Here is a video of all of the video clips of Big Val.  I am so grateful for this YouTuber for compiling them in one convenient package…

(Yeah, yeah, I know.  Most of you guys are probably drooling over
Todd Strange — and I don’t blame you.  He is definitely hotter than Kirk…)

Here’s one of my favorite cover songs from Crowbar: Gary Wright’s Dreamweaver.  Their type of music is sludge metal, and here’s a good taste of what it is about…  Believe it or not, this song puts me to sleep.  Hells, yeah.
