Ted Nugent is among the many musicians and fellow guitarists mourning the shooting death of "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott last week. Nugent, who resides in Abbott's native Texas these days, told Launch Radio Networks that he always had a high regard for the PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN co-founder. "It's a heartbreaker," he said. "He's cultivating his American dream and he's upgraded his life substantially over the years. And then he gets blown away? At a club? Having a party and rock 'n' rolling? I don't get it."Nugent leaves Texas this week to start rehearsing in Michigan for an upcoming tour, but he told Launch he planned to check in with the Abbott family to offer condolences before he departs: "God rest his soul. We'll pray for his family. In fact, they're here in Texas and the PANTERA boys, they show up at everything Uncle Ted, whenever I'm anywhere near them. So I'll get a hold of them and see what I can do to help."
