Four Years Without Dimebag Darrell…It Just Sucks

Posted in Pantera with tags , , , , on December 8, 2008 by gearsofrock

Don’t forget to take a moment to honor and remember the legendary Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell, as today marks the four year anniversary of his cowardly murder—play it loud and proud.

“Once you’re into it, you’re into it for a lifetime. And maybe it’s not the coolest thing when it comes to what’s on top of the charts, but that sh– that’s been on top of the charts — on and off, on and off, a million times — and we’re still standing strong. So we’ll be here forever. United and hard we f—ing stand.” -Dimebag []

Dimebag Darrell Tribute At Ozzfest 2008

Above is the only decent video with good audio that I could find from the Dimebag tribute. It is “A New Level” with Max Cavalera [Soulfly], King Diamond, Scott Ian [Anthrax], and Kerry King [Slayer]. Many people are thrashing on King Diamond’s backing vocals, I embrace them.

From what I have seen of this venue on YouTube, it really doesn’t seem like the greatest place to hold the only Ozzfest show of the year. You can probably see what I mean. There seems to be no good view of the stage and the location of the jumbo screens are not optimal. Then there is that ugly Pizza Hut logo on top of the stage. I am confident they will bring the show back on the road next year.
