On the sixth anniversary of the murder of Dimebag Darrell Abbott, Metal Underground has this positive news: As we once again mark the passing of the man born Darrell Lance Abbott, we perhaps have more reason for hope this year than in years past, as two of those who were closest to him, his longtime girlfriend Rita Haney and his front man and friend Phil Anselmo, appear to have let the wounds inflicted by the acrimonious split of Pantera and certain comments made by Anselmo, taken out of context in the metal press and circulated with tabloid sensationalism, heal this year. Though the rift between Anselmo and Dime's surviving brother Vinnie remains wide, we can be sure that Dime would enjoy seeing those who loved him most reunited in the spirit of his generous nature. In fact, it was only illness that prevented Anselmo from performing at Dimebash 2010, an all star tribute to the fallen guitar hero. In Rita's forgiveness and Phil's unwavering attempts at reconciliation, the gregarious and loving persona of Dime lives on. more
