Biography

Dimebag Darrell was best known as the guitarist for Pantera and Damageplan. He also performed in the southern metal band Rebel Meets Rebel.

On December 8, 2004, Abbott was murdered on stage during a Damageplan performance at the Alrosa Villa in Columbus, Ohio. He was shot 3 times by Nathan Gale. Two fans tried to administer CPR on Dimebag until paramedics arrived, but they failed to revive him ...

Trivia

Dimebag was Vinnie Paul's brother with whom he co-founded Pantera. Their father Jerry Abbott, was a famous country music producer.

Around 1989, Dimebag was offered a chance to play in Megadeth, but turned down the offer when his brother Vinnie Paul couldn't join.

Dimebag used to own a billy goat, which had a beard painted pink or purple or red, just like him.
