On October 29 at the Key Club in West Hollywood, CA, fans and an all-star lineup will gather to celebrate the life of a heavy metal legend – it is the announcement of this year’s DIMEBASH 2010, in honor of “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott.
“The thing I remember the most about Darrell was the way he loved to jump up on stage with anyone at the drop of a hat”, states Rita Haney, longtime girlfriend of Dime and the person who knew him best. “When this tragedy originally happened, I saw the music community unite like I’ve never seen before. To have the name ‘Dimebag’, still to this day, bring together musicians and fans to pay homage in such a respectful way to such an amazing person and cause is very overwhelming! In Dime’s vision… it’s always been about a damn good time!” At the same time, proceeds will benefit in the name of another metal legend that left us too early, the Ronnie James Dio Stand up and Shout Cancer Fund.
The all-star lineup to share the stage will include hard rock and heavy metal titans: Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters, Simon Wright from Dio, Brent Smith, Zach Myers and Eric Bass of Shinedown, Kerry King and Dave Lombardo of Slayer, Robb Flynn and Phil Demmel of Machine Head, Chuck Billy from Testament, Chris Howorth and Maria Brink of In This Moment and many more, including some surprise.
