When he discovered that the noise was guitars and that the people playing the guitars were close to his age, he discovered some new friends. Now the 28-year-old Colby resident travels around the world with them. Arnberger didn't stumble into a typical garage band, the kind that plays Aerosmith's "Sweet Emotion," Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird" and anything by Led Zeppelin. He became friends with two of the members of the now platinum-selling heavy-metal band Pantera. At 15, Arnberger moved to Arlington from Colby along with his mother and stepfather, Cheryl and Brooks Jackson, and his sister, Lisa. He began hanging out with Pantera and filming videos of their concerts in 1985 as the band traveled around Texas playing in clubs and small concert halls. "I just wanted to make movies, and I watched a lot of MTV, but that's when it was good back then," Arnberger said. "I just thought I could do stuff like that." After a brief trip to California, Arnberger's family moved back to Colby. Arnberger decided to move to Arlington and work at a sign company. He started to do more favors for Pantera by screening T-shirts and logos. And he kept filming. He piled into the cramped van and traveled with the band. When Pantera was signed to a record label in 1990 and began to tour beyond small Texas clubs, Arnberger went with the band. Arnberger said he had no doubt that the group would be successful. "Everyone had their own spot in the van," he said. "They were just different, and they were focused, and they knew what they really wanted. That's why I stuck with them." Arnberger has been around the world with the band, and his footage makes up a majority of the bands' three full-length videocassettes: "Cowboys from Hell," released in 1991; "Vulgar Video," in 1993, and "3: Watch it Go," in 1997. The latest video debuted at No. 1 at Billboard's video sales chart, a rare accomplishment for a heavy metal band. His mother, Cheryl Jackson, who still lives in Colby with the rest of Arnberger's family, wasn't too supportive of her son when he told her he would be traveling with the band. "We really didn't think of much of it at the time," she said and laughed. "But I liked how he hung in there, and he said they were going to be somebody and that he was going to be with them. So he was right, and we were wrong. I told him it's OK for parents to be wrong sometimes, too." In this 1994 photo, Arnberger and Darrell Abbott of Pantera hold a plaque commemorating the band's first two gold videos. Photos courtesy of Daryl Arnberger Daryl Arnberger (right) of Colby, who shoots videos for the band Pantera, is shown with Gene Simmons of Kiss. Arnberger has met many heavy metal legends through his touring with Pantera. "There aren't many people left in bands who I want to meet anymore," Arnberger says. She still worries about him, and she bought him a St. Christopher medal to wear when he leaves on one of his six- to eight-month journeys with the band. When he's away, he calls her with his schedule so she knows what he's doing at all times. "He calls a lot and sends postcards," she said. Arnberger will be in Colby until May, when he will leave to go to South America with the band. He is paid well for filming Pantera and hopes to buy a house in Colby one day.
