Saturday night was the anniversary of the passing of the great Dimebag Darrel Abbot, guitarist for Pantera who was tragically shot and killed on-stage back in 2004. Eight years is a long time, but for those who respcted and loved Darrel, no amount of time will ever be able to effectively heal those wounds. So in honor of Darrel’s passing several bands were filmed paying tribute to the man and his music over the weekend. From Machine Head, to Sylosis, these band’s took special time out of their day and did their best to honor a man who was, for better or worse, a key-player in bringing metal to the masses during the late 80’s, 90’s and early 2000’s. I’m not going to say much else, because really what can I say? If you’re interested, click the videos, watch them, and then go listen to Vulgar Display of Power and pour one out for a fallen homie. Cheers.
