It happened 5 years ago, this very day. Damageplan was playing a show at the Alrosa Villa in Columbus, Ohio when tragedy struck. A crazed fan (most likely full of self hate, and probably a few months behind on his rent) stormed the stage and shot guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott.
Any self respecting metal head remembers where they were on that terrible night. It just so happens that I was working. Words can’t describe the horrible feeling that I experienced. I can’t even imagine what all of the people in attendance were going through. But no matter how monumentally shitty losing Dime was, we mustn’t mourn forever. We should honor the man in the only way he would want us to….PARTY TILL WE PUKE!!
The overlords at RBM understand how the metal world feels about Dimebag’s death. To make this day as less depressing as possible, we have selected a few PANTERA songs. There is one stipulation. RBM asks you to play these videos loud enough for Dime to hear them. “How does one do that?” you ask? Turn that volume dial up until it breaks the fuck off!!!
