Today marks what would have been Dimebag Darrell’s 47th birthday. The icon’s life was horribly taken from him back in 2004, but his legacy lives on through his timeless music for generations and generations. In the metal world, we like to argue on our favorite albums, songs, vocalists, drummers, etc, but Dimebag Darrell being the greatest metal guitar player ever is something we all seem to agree on. After the amazing riffs, solos, and live shows he blessed us with over the years, how could he not be number one?! He’s the absolute BEST!
So what made him the greatest? We all have our opinions on why, but let’s hear from the man who shared a stage with him for so many years in the greatest force the metal world has ever seen. PAN-FUCKING-TERA! Phil Anselmo recently spoke to our friends at Loudwire about his fallen friend and you can watch the kid’s response on why Dime was the best below!
Raise one up to the pink beard in the sky! Happy Birthday Dime!
