Got a lot of requests for this off of a sketch I did awhile back. Darrell “Dimebag” Abbott was one of heavy metal’s great guitar players. Innovative, soulful, and full of heart. Best known for his work with Pantera, he eventually went on to shred with Damageplan. He can be heard with outlaw country legend David Allen Coe in a little project called Rebel Meets Rebel.
But that’s not all. Dime was so sought after, that he can be heard on a large number of other projects, lending guitar work to bands such as Anthrax, Nickelback, Drowning Pool, King Diamond, and more.
He was tragically gunned down during a Damageplan concert at the Al Rosa Villa in Columbus, OH. Every year since that horrible night on December 8, 2004, fans still gather at the Al Rosa to pay tribute to this fallen guitar hero who, by all accounts, was honest, hard-working, down to earth, and who truly loved life and appreciated his fans.
