Hatebreed front man, Jamey Jasta, will be hosting this year’s Dimebag Darrell Black Tooth Bash on May 17, 2007 at the House of Blues in Los Angeles. Featuring a slough of guest performances, Dimebag’s Black Tooth Bash will be an all-star event, with all proceeds going to the Little Kids Rock foundation, Dimebag Darrell’s charity of choice. The Black Tooth Bash will include mash up performances by the Black Tooth Band, featuring Vinnie Paul Abbott, Scott Ian, John 5, Matt Byrne (Hatebreed), Ripper Owens, David Draiman (Disturbed), Bob Zilla (Damageplan) Dave Navarro, Chester Bennington (Linkin Park) and many more. The Black Tooth Band will cover material from Dimebag’s many projects – including Pantera classics. Jamey will close the night by performing as part of the Black Tooth Band and will be hosting the entire tribute event.

Jasta will also be introducing a special performance by the L.A. division of The Little Kids Rock Foundation, showing the fruits of the foundation’s labors. The Black Tooth Bash is an apropos tribute to Dimebag’s impact on metal and his ardent dedication to bringing the arts to children. In support of the Black Tooth Bash, Coffin Case, Seymour Duncan, Dean Guitars, Schecter Guitars, EMG Pickups and GHS Strings have jumped on as the evening’s sponsors.

Preceding the Black Tooth Bash is the Six String Masterpieces: The Dimebag Darrell Art Tribute auction, where over 60 hand-painted Dean guitars (painted by celebrities and famous tattoo artists) will be auctioned off. Proceeds from the auction will benefit The Little Kids Rock Foundation, helping bring music programs to public schools throughout the US. Fittingly, Dimebag will also be inducted into the Hollywood Rockwalk at noon the same day, establishing his timeless impact on the rock and metal world.
