Dimebag's longtime girlfriend Rita Haney had this to say, "Crazy thing about this event is, you never think the last one can be topped. But when this much creativity comes together in one room, dude, watch it go! It will light you up! The vibe is always so incredible. It's like that vibe you get on Christmas Day, before you unwrap your presents, and the excitement of not knowing what you're going to get. But I guarantee, it's not those sh*tty socks you get from your grandma every year. You're gonna dig it and leave with a smile! That's the magic 'something Dime' can create,"
