Pantera Producer Slams TV Station For Dimebag Murder Feature


(Classic Rock) Pantera producer Sterling Winfield has reacted with anger over a TV station's feature about the murder of Dimebag Darrell Abbott. He's accused WBNS-10TV of creating a "clickbait" report that needlessly causes upset, after this their release of previously-unpublished scene pictures.

Dimebag was shot dead on stage with his band Damageplan in Columbus, Ohio, on December 8, 2004. Four others died and seven were injured before the murderer was killed.

Winfield - who also worked with Damageplan - says via Facebook: "Is that the best you can do for news, cickbait from an almost 12-year-old murder? You people are most definitely part of the problem in this country. Drudging up the past and upsetting the family and friends of these people all over again must be incredibly rewarding and spiritually enlightening for you.
