dimeOn August 20, 1966, the world was given a man who would prove to be one of the greatest guitar players in Heavy Metal history in the late, great Dimebag Darrell Abbott (Pantera/Damageplan). Unfortunately as history would have it, he was taken away from us in the blink of an eye due to a senseless crime. If he was alive, he would be turning 49 years old on this day, but we will never forget the legacy he left on this world because I’m sure he’s tearing it up in the other with some of the other great legends that are there as well. So, to help celebrate Dimebag Darrell’s birthday, we are dedicating this week’s Music Video Of The Week in his honor. The music video we are using is one of my personal favorites from the band’s breakout record Far Beyond Driven in the video for 5 Minutes Alone. I always loved the slow motion action in this video and the close ups of Dime’s hands playing the guitar especially during the guitar solo. Check out the video, head bang till your head falls off, and celebrate the legacy of the great Dimebag Darrell. Happy Birthday Dimebag Darrell!!!
