Dimebag Darrell: Still missed

Nine years ago, heavy metal suffered one of the most shocking tragedies to ever hit the music world when “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott was cruelly snatched from us on that fateful night in Ohio.

Shot onstage by Nathan Gale while performing with Damageplan, Dimebag was one of four people killed that night, leaving behind his long-time girlfriend Rita Haney, his brother Vinnie and an incredible legacy as one of the greatest metal guitarists of them all.

It’s maddening trying to get a grip on the fact that it’s now nearly a decade since we lost him, and we still love and miss him dearly. We will never, ever forget him, his influence or what he’s meant to us as music fans. Wherever you are and whatever you’re doing today, raise a glass. RIP, brother.
