December will always be the month that metal celebrates the life of the late Dimebag Darrell. Every year, Dime's girlfriend/widow Rita Haney plans a benefit to celebrate the life of Dimebag Darrell by putting a HUGE tribute show with all the proceeds donated to the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up & Shout Cancer Fund. This year, TONS of HUGE names in Metal joined in on the jam!
Rex Brown, former bassist of Pantera/Down has split ways with Down and has formed a new band/supergroup named 'Kill Devil Hill,' with members of W.A.S.P, Dio, Black Sabbath, and Pissing Razors. After 23 years of being with Phillip Anselmo (Pantera/Down vocalist), why did Rex leave 'Down?'
Back on December 2004, one of the saddest days in Metal occured, when Darrell "Dimebag" Abbot was brutally shot to death. After the occurrence, Dime's brother Vinnie Paul ceased to ever communicate with Pantera frontman Phillip Anselmo, as Vinnie possibly specualates that Phillip had something to do with Dime's death.
In a recent interview with Dimebag's longtime girlfriend Rita Haney, she want's Vinnie to FORGIVE PHIL!
To those hoping for a Pantera reunion, you can stop wishing now. Drummer Vinny Paul dismissed any rumors that Pantera would be reforming without his brother Dimebag Darrell, who was tragically shot and killed in December of 2004.
