This week marked the 15th anniversary of the tragic onstage murder of Pantera legend Dimebag Darrell Abbott and frontman Philip Anselmo has paid tribute to his former bandmate.

Anselmo shared a lengthy tribute to Darrell with Rolling Stone. Here is an excerpt: "I remember Dimebag as a warrior. He was not only an incredible guitar player and personality but also within the Pantera gang of band members and road crew, he was a very dynamic personality, always very demanding of everybody. And he had a magic way of showing you his appreciation.

"The way he went out, using the word 'murder' is always a stark, cold, hideous thing. None of this sh*t gets easier for me. It actually keeps getting tougher and tougher. For me, personally, I've yet to come to terms with it. I don't see the sense. I don't see the everything-happens-for-a-reason attitude. This year is the toughest yet.

"But when I think about Dimebag, 99 percent of the time, it's always the hilarious great times, and then one percent of the time it's regrettable times, on my part. I think of Dime every day of my life. I'm a vivid dreamer and he's in a lot of my dreams. When I dream about Dimebag, it's always good times back when we used to travel in the blue van or his souped-up yellow Camaro, where he would just terrorize his little Arlington, Texas, neighborhood. He was just f***ing hilarious, tearing into people's lawns or smashing into f***ing mailboxes. He was a f***ing wild man." Read the rest of the Phil's tribute here
