Check Out Dimebag Darrell’s Guitar Parts on Hellyeah’s New Phil Collins Cover
About 14 years ago, Vinnie and Darrell recorded Phil Collins' "I Don't Care Anymore" while working on the Damageplan album, but never used it. On the new album from Hellyeah, the band decided to cover the song and make it theirs, and use Dime's guitar parts to make it special and honor his memory.
This is the result.
The producer Kevin Churko flew in the isolated guitar parts from Dime's original recording and synched it up with the version the band recorded, and it immediately gave the band goosebumps.
"When Kevin [Churko, producer] got the tracks isolated, he synched them up, and when we listened them it totally gave me goosebumps," Paul says. "We've always felt like he's been a part of this band since day one. We felt like his energy and his spirit was always with us. And for people to be able to hear him again in 2016 puts a big smile on my face."
It really is cool to hear Dime's playing live on, and get to come back on things like this. He was such an amazing talent.
To be honest, I'm a much bigger fan of Hellyeah over these last two albums, than the ones before. I'm not a huge fan of the whole "cowboy party band" thing they had going. But when they released Blood for Blood, it was darker, heavier, and more of what I like. I began to take them a lot more seriously, IMHO.
This new album, Unden!able, takes the next step, and is another serious and heavy album in their newer style. Gone are the silly party anthems like "Drink Drank Drunk", and "Cowboy Way". Now they're meaner, more aggressive, and sound like the band Vinnie and Chad should be in.
