Last night (Thursday, January 24), Santa Ana, California's Observatory OC hosted a massive "Dimebash", a tribute to late PANTERA guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott. The event was hosted by Sirius XM's Jose Mangin and was headlined by an all-star jam of top musicians performing Dime's music and his favorite tunes.
Video footage of Dimebag's PANTERA bandmate Rex Brown, along with Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT, STONE SOUR), Dave Grohl (FOO FIGHTERS), Scott Ian (ANTHRAX), Charlie Benante (ANTHRAX) and Chris Broderick (MEGADETH, ACT OF DEFIANCE) performing the PANTERA classic "Walk" at this year's "Dimebash" can be seen below.
"Dimebash" also featured individual performances by KILL DEVIL HILL and FIREBALL MINISTRY.
Dimebag was co-founder and lead guitarist for PANTERA. When PANTERA broke up in 2003, Dimebag and his brother Vinnie Paul formed DAMAGEPLAN. On December 8, 2004, while performing with DAMAGEPLAN at the Alrosa Villa in Columbus, Ohio, Dimebag was shot and killed onstage. He was 38 years old.
