Metal Stars Confirmed For Dimebag Tribute

Band Photo: Metallica (?)

The Ozzfest live tribute to fallen Pantera/ Damageplan guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott has began to take a clearer shape with many big name members of the metal community confirmed. The musicians will perform a set of Pantera classics after the set of Hellyeah at Ozzfest. Among the confirmed artists are:

Vinnie Paul (Pantera, Damageplan, Hellyeah)
Kerry King (Slayer)
Scott Ian (Anthrax)
Charlie Benante (Anthrax)
Mike Inez (Alice In Chains)
Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains)
King Diamond (Mercyful Fate, Solo artist)
Kirk Hammett (Metallica)
Chad Gray (Mudvayne, Hellyeah)
Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed, Icepick, Kingdom Of Sorrow)
Bob Zilla (Damageplan, Hellyeah)

Dimebag's former girlfriend Rita Haney has said about the tribute: “To have this event on the Mainstage at OZZFest in Dallas is such a treat and an honor!” says Rita Haney. “When this tragedy originally happened, I saw the music community come together like I've never seen before. To have the name ‘Dimebag’ still, to this day, unite musicians to pay homage in such a respectful way, is very overwhelming! In Dime's vision, it's always been about a damn good time!"

“When we decided on Dallas as the site for this year’s OZZFest, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to pay tribute to ‘Dimebag’ Darrell since it was his hometown,” said Sharon Osbourne. “’Dimebag’ was a part of our OZZFest family and everyone in the metal community misses him dearly.”

King Diamond has lived in Texas for a long time now (at least, the last time I heard), so that probably has something to do with it. Hopefully he'll wail out something from CFH or earlier. I'd love to see that.

enjoyed Dimebag , but how many tribute shows are they gonna do? It seems like it's becoming a good way to market a show for bands to play at, "call it a tribute for Dimebag". I wish these bands would stop using his name so they can have a place to play instead of the small clubs they should be playing in.

Your not a pantera fan? don't make comment's about Phil.
your only saying that because that is the opinion of alot of other loudmouths on the interent, it maybe true that his addictions lead to Pantera's demise but lets face it bands don't last forever.
I also believe that the media played more of role in the demise of Pantera.

Bottom line is Phil is much a part of Pantera as Dime was! and he needs to be respected.

R.I.P. Dimebag!

I dunno, I think "Bubba" kinda has a point. Phil was an a$$hole, no doubt about it...but he seems truly sorry, and deserves some respect. I really do hope that Vinnie and Rita can just be friends with him again someday, because he seems to want that.

Also... I think if Phil had been shot instead of Dimebag, most of the world would have forgotten what an a$$hole he (Phil) was at the time. I like Dime as much as any self-respecting metalhead should, but I think there's a lot of worship going to him just because of the tragedy, and it would have been the same way, maybe to a lesser degree, had it been Phil and not him.

Bubba, last time I checked this is a free website and country. I'm sorry that me not being a fan of Pantera somehow makes my opinion that an ex heroine junky who said something that horrible about his ex guitarist doesn't deserve to play in a tribute show to him somehow invalid.

If Phil was the one who got shot it would have not surprised me at all.

Maybe Phil is now waking up and appoligizeing for the things he did to Dime, but its way too little way too late in my opinion.

Phil is f***ing c*** the whole reason that Pantera broke up is because Phil wasnt ready to start recording again and Dime and Vinnie were plus Phil's drug addiction so Dime and Vinnie went off and started Damageplan and if Phil wouldve got off his lazy a$$ then Dime wouldnt have been playing in a little bar venue and wouldnt have got shot.

Wishing harm on an enemy is fine as hate is a natural human emotion. However doing so must be carefuly thought out as to wether their actions against you are truly worthy of such a strong emotion. From what everyone who every personaly met Dime who I have spoken to has only spoken great words of the man, I could not imagine that he did anything to Phil to constitute such a strong emotion or will against Dime.

The only words Dime had for Phil were after he had heard the "Metal Hammer" tapes with Phil's heroin injested words. Dime then said "What did I ever do to harm him?...You know what I've had it with this"...Rita had discovered Dime's journal of some sort and it read..."No longer will he trample through my peaceful mind"...I don't like Phil being blamed for Dime's death because, first, everyone is saying "Well if Phil had never left PanterA there would have been no Damageplan"...and so on. If a backwards chain is the case then, blame whoever created heroin for Phil to take. Resulting in his violent onstage rants and later on...Departure. If there's anyone to blame it's definitely Nathane "PIECE OF sh**!!!" Gale. If he had never been such a stupid d*** about being "made fun of" then everything would've been fine. I was also curious on how he managed to get into the venue with a gun...anybody??...talk about low-security..

get rid of chad grey and jamey jasta and replace them with........anyone metal. other than those two its a cool and respectable tribute lineup.

then quit with all the f***ing dime tributes. im sick of his death being whored out and pantera songs being covered by idiots that dont practice or even play the solos just because dime worship is "in" right now.

the guy was a great guitarist and died a horribley tragic death. the guy wasnt my biggest idol, but i was (and still am) a big fan of him and his work. i wish i couldve seen either pantera or damageplan live, but i never had that opportunity.

For everyone blaming Phil for the breakup and sh**...
"Phil is f***ing c*** the whole reason that Pantera broke up is because Phil wasnt ready to start recording again and Dime and Vinnie were plus Phil's drug addiction so Dime and Vinnie went off and started Damageplan and if Phil wouldve got off his lazy a$$ then Dime wouldnt have been playing in a little bar venue and wouldnt have got shot" Is a good example...

I would just like to point out that without Phil in the first place, Pantera would not be the band we love and adore today. "Power Metal" anyone? He studied Exorder's vocals and style and got the band playing like that, so without him helping to make the band what it became, the whole Nathan Gale thing might never have happened anyway, or if it did, noone would really care all that much because nobody would have given two sh**s about Dime (a certain "useless wooden toys" article comes to mind...) Sure, the dude is an a$$hole. Sure. he sais some things he shouldn't have. Sure, he had some retarted beef with Dimebag. But he is by no means someone who should be blamed for the dude's death or Pantera's breakup in the first place. Everyone in the band disagreeing on sh** was the fault for the breakup, and Dime's death is nobody's fault but Nathan Gale's... If you try and shift the blame from the perpetrator, all you're doing is giving them an excuse, and for sh** like this, there ARE no excuses.

Anyone ever thought about the fact that maybe Dime wanted to start another band? Maybe he was TIRED of doing the same thing over and over and over and over....
AND FURTHERMORE...we're talking about METAL f*ckin dudes here. So if Phil said that Dime needed an a$$ kicking well...who wouldnt expect him to if he was p***ed off at Dime? He's not some emo...he ain't gonna say o yeah Dime made me cry or some lame sh-t like that...yeah sure it wasn't NICE . Metal dudes arent the kind of dudes to sit around and give a flying F*CK about each other's feelings! WTF! And as far as blaming Phil for what some crazed fan did...f*ck that. You can't be held responsible for your fans, believe me. I F*CKING HATE PHIL and not because of what transpired between Dime and him, so I'm not defending him. I'm just saying that a$$hole that shot Dime is the only person to blame. AND Jamey Jasta is one of the coolest people you will ever meet. Whether you like Hatebreed or not, he does a lot of stuff for indie metal bands, and generally kicks some serious a$$. I do agree that Chad Gray is a homo. If you've seen THEM live...gah! Horrible.

i hope this tribute does justice to his legacy. chad gray is gonna have to smoke cigarettes til his lungs collapse to get his voice deep enough to fill phil's shoes. otherwise he should probably just stay home.

i dont think mustaine would do any pantera song justice by singing, maybe if he was on guitars then MAYBE...but he doesnt have the vocal "talent" that phil has/had/whatever. hes too snarly and his mouth doesnt move while he sings. silly mustaine

It's sad that it came to this.But it's true Phil saide some thing's that are a bit unforgiveable in the mind's of the ABBOTT'S.It does not matter if he was nathan gale's true motivation or not.The point is he saide these thing's.So as a result Rita & Vinnie have every right to deny him.That much is clearly his own fault.
