VELVET REVOLVER Guitarist Talks About DIMEBAG's Murder

VELVET REVOLVER guitarist Dave Kushner recently spoke to New Zealand's about the murder of PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott at a nightclub in Columbus, Ohio in early December.

"You know, it was weird," Kushner said. "Their tour manager called us only a few nights before it happened and when we heard we weren't sure who had been shot. Each time we got a phone call it would be someone different.

"We (had) just played a month or so ago with DAMAGEPLAN, on a radio show. Dimebag was such an amazing guitar player, and Matt and the guys were friends with Dime and Vinnie (Dimebag's brother) from their PANTERA days. It's a real tragedy and really disturbing to think that something like that can happen to you. It shakes the foundations of what we do."
