Geezer Butler joins Dimebash 2012

Dimebag Darrell was one of the most exciting and talented metal guitarists of all time. It’s sad that we lost him in that terrible tragedy in 2004, because I think he had much more metal badassery to offer us, and instead of kicking ass on stage (maybe in a Pantera reunion), all we can do now is remember the good ol’ days when this guy was alive and showing those dubstep/nu-metal pussies how it’s done.

But I digress. Dimebash 2012 is happening, and a lot of great names are taking part. Let’s be honest, a few not-so-great names are in there, also, but Dime liked everybody, so in the spirit of Dime-goodness, I’m gonna let Serj slide.

Anyway, Geezer Butler will also be there, alongside people like Scott Ian, Tom Morello, Phil Demmel, Duff McKagan, Jerry Cantrell, Tim “Ripper” Owens, and others… Sounds pretty awesome.

Metal guitar legend “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott’s influence on the music community can never be fully estimated, but if the collection of artists and players at this year’s DimeBash 2011 is any indication, his legacy is as far-reaching and deeper than ever before. On December 14th, the world of hard rock and metal come together in a communion of thunderous songs and stories to tip its collective glass to one of the true masters of not only guitar, but music as a whole.

Show begins at 8 PM tonight, if you’re lucky enough to go there, make sure you honor Dime by drinking and enjoying metal. Getcha’ pull!



Alice in Chains were interviewed (videos after the jump). Unfortunately, nobody asked them why their new video looks like an amateur version of Fantastic Voyage.

Slash, Jerry Cantrell and John 5 will all appear in Turn it Up! — a movie about the electric guitar, obviously showcasing how you can get famous even if you’re mediocre at it.

Annihilator release free album. ‘If you can’t fight them, join them’ said their lead singer, referring to their fans who refuse to waste money on their stuff. Get it here.

Lordi (pictured above), the band who looks like Slipknot after an acid bath, won the ‘Eurovision Song Contest’ by hacking their website a few years ago. It paid off, as now they sold a whooping 1,000 copies in the United States, and those are just from dumb Lord of The Rings fans who thought it was a spin-off CD. These contests work, folks.
