Doug Pinnick of KING'S X says,"I love being a part of 'Dimebash'. So many friends and musicians show up and it's like a family reunion. And keeping Dime's party tradition in full bloom." PANTERA's Rex Brown adds: "'Dimebash', to me, is the epitome of celebrating his life and music all in one night! He was always about camaraderie, brotherhood and a killer f*ckin time! 'Dimebash' smokes on."

KYNG's Eddie Veliz says: "'Dimebash' is one of the best shows/parties KYNG has played. One of the greatest memories of my career happened at 'Dimebash' 2016 when I had the pleasure of playing PINK FLOYD's 'Wish You Were Here'. The details to this story are very long-winded, but let's just say it involved a couple of acoustics guitars and Dave Grohl. We are proud once again to play 'Dimebash' 2018 because the proceeds always go to a good cause and a life is celebrated. Dimebag helped me mold the sound of KYNG through his music and I will always have a massive place in my heart for him, Rita Haney and the entire PANTERA family."
