Remembering a Great Musician

It's been seven years since that tragic night when "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott took the stage for the final time. He was senselessly gunned down by a so-called fan just before starting a set with Damageplan, his current band at the time. No one knows why it happened, all we know is that metal lost one of its most important figures that night. His distinctive screech is instantly recognizable and no one has dared try to replicate it.

Personally I've been a fan of Dime's since the mid 90s when I started to get into metal. Much Music used to play a show on Saturday nights dedicated solely to metal, and every show had at least one Pantera tune on it. Pantera and Damageplan are still bands that I listen to on a regular basis and now my kids are starting to show an interest in their music as well. Take today to remember this guitar god and crank the hell outta some metal!
