It was nine years ago today that Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell was shot and killed onstage in Columbus, Ohio. His passing left the world of rock devastated. All these years later, we still mourn his tragic death and the hole his passing left in rock music.
It was a sad day for fans of heavy metal band Pantera when Darrell Lance Abbott -- aka Dimebag Darrell -- was murdered. The guitarist, who would have turned 46 on Aug. 20, was shot dead while performing onstage in 2004. But
Former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde is willing to replace Dimebag Darrell should Pantera reform. In an interview promoting his book, 'Bringing Metal to the Children: The Complete Berzerker's Guide to World Tour Domination,' Wylde was asked the question that has been floating around the metal world for the past few months.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary reissue of Pantera's classic metal album 'Vulgar Display of Power,' Loudwire and Ultimate Classic Rock are giving you the chance to win a jaw-droppingly cool Dean 'Dimebonics' guitar as well as the new 20th anniversary edition of the record.
Since lost tracks always seem to surface just before a band is ready for a reissue or a "special edition remaster," they're often rightly looked upon with suspicion. But Pantera proves sometimes the reason a song doesn't make an album is that it simply didn't play nicely with the other tracks.
