Dimebag would have been 46 years old today.  We lost him 8 years ago, and the metal scene is still missing something...

Happy Birthday Dimebag


Horns up! 

Keep rocking up there in Heaven Dime!

He was the guitarist for Damageplan at the time, but was better known for being the guitarist for Pantera. He was shot and killed on stage by a deranged former Marine in front of Dime's brother, Vinnie Paul also of Pantera fame, he was the drummer.

No.  His full name was Darrell Lance Abbott.  His brother is Vinnie Paul Abbott (yes the same drummer Vinnie Paul).

He was in Pantera, but after they disbanded, he joined forces with Vinnie Paul, Rex Brown (Pantera's bassist), and country artist David Allan Coe to form Rebel Meets Rebel.  They released one cd, and then formed a new band (without DAC and Rex) called Damageplan.  During the first song, "Wake Up," an a-hole named Nathan Gale jumped up on stage and yelled "you broke up Pantera" and shot him 6 times.   He then took a few others before he was taken down.

He also played on a few other songs (Nickelback's cover of "Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting)";  Anthrax's "Riding Shotgun," "King Size," "Born Again Idiot," "Inside Out," "Strap It On," and "Cadillac Rock Box"

Wow... Could you be more of a dick? Tribe might be a bit over the top at times, but just because you don't deem something as being important doesn't mean have to be an ass about it. Dime was a helluva guitarist and was snuffed out in the prime of his life and to those of us who liked his music, it is important enough for caps or whatever else.
