Guitar World magazine conducted an interview with late PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott's girlfriend of 20 years, Rita Haney, for its March 2008 issue, which contains a special section dedicated to Dimebag, the magazine's 2008 Hall Of Fame winner.When asked for her favorite memory of her time with Darrell, Haney said, "Darrell didn't sleep well at night, but he'd nod out while he was watching TV. He loved to watch forensics. The second he'd go to sleep, I'd steal the remote and switch it over to something that I wanted to watch, and I'd be real quiet so I didn't wake him. One time we were sitting together on the couch and I had to fart. I didn't want to get up because it would wake him up, so I just let it slide out. After I did, I was going, 'Oh, my God! This smells so awful!' and I was trying to keep from laughing. About that time, he started to stir, and he said, 'Are you cooking something? I smell sausage.' And he went back to sleep. I started laughing and then he completely woke up and said, 'Goddamn it! You farted, didn't you?' I told him I was sorry, but I couldn't stop laughing. Every time I think about 'Are you cooking? I smell sausage,' I have to laugh. I have a lot of good memories of him, but that one is about as candid as it gets."
