Doodle of the Day - R.I.P. Dimebag Darrell


On today's date, 7 years ago, legendary guitarist Dimebag Darrell was shot and killed on stage during a concert. Best known for his role in the band Pantera, his aggressive riffs, electrifying solos, stunning originality, unpredictability, and overall badassness, made his music famous around the world and earned him an awesome name.

Gibson.com named Dimebag one of the top ten metal guitarists of all time, but Dimebag could play anything and everything, from jazz to classical. I wonder where he should rank on a list of all guitarists.

A good article about Dimebag Darrell's huge influence in music can be found HERE.
