Vinnie Paul Remembers Dimebag (A Top Story)


.
On Friday Vinnie Paul Remembers Dimebag was a top story. Here is the recap: (Gibson) It's hard to believe, but more than seven years have passed since Pantera and Damageplan guitar icon "Dimebag" Darrell met his untimely death while performing a show in Columbus, Ohio. The loss rattled the metal community, and the shock still lingers today.

Dimebag's brother, Vinnie Paul Abbott, drums in rock supergroup Hellyeah. Abbott recently chatted with Noisecreep about his brother's legacy, and he says the bottom line is that Dimebag "got off on making people happy."

"It didn't matter if it was about playing his guitar, shaking their hand, giving them a guitar pick. It didn't matter… " he said. "He got off on making people happy... He would not let you down. He was everything you wanted him to be, and then some. And we all miss him."

Abbott went on to call Dimebag the "biggest inspiration in my life." "I know he inspires these guys [the rest of Hellyeah]; I guarantee he's proud of this band," he said. "He's a part of this band. He might not be standing next to us, but I guarantee he … inspires every one of us to kick ass every … day, and we won't let him down. And that's the bottom line." - more on this story
