"Dimebag" Darrell Abbott
"Dimebag" Darrell Abbott was an American singer,
musician, and lead guitarist for the heavy metal
bands Pantera and Damageplan. The thrash rock
pioneer and two-time Grammy nominee was best known
for I'm Broken, Revolution Is My Name,
Mouth For War, Power Metal, New Found Power,
Reinventing The Steel, The Great Southern Trendkill,
Cowboys From Hell and Far Beyond Driven. Pantera
had been one of the most popular heavy metal
bands of the early 1990s. Darrell and his brother,
drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, founded Damageplan
after Pantera's acrimonious breakup.
The virtuoso guitarist was shot and killed
on stage in Columbus, Ohio, during a 2004
concert. The gunman, Nathan Gale, was shot
and killed by police officer James Niggemeyer
who confronted Gale after he took a hostage
at gunpoint, immediately following the shootings.
Many of those present at the nightclub praised
the officer and credited him with saving lives.
