Dean Guitars Celebrates Dimebag Darrell at Monster Energy's ýDimeBash 2011ţ Dec. 14, 2011
posted on 2011-12-07

(Los Angeles, CA - December 8, 2011) - 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. "Today marks the 7th year, which still doesn't seem like a reality to me", states Rita Haney, longtime girlfriend of Dime and the person who knew him best. "Sometimes I think, "Boy this sure is a long ass tour", but then I focus back in and realize what I'm working on at this moment and I just have to smile and be thankful for all the amazing people that surround me - thanks to him. I hope everyone enjoys this event as much as we like bringing it to them. It's nothing more, nothing less, than "About a damn good time!" - one of my favorite Dime pastimes and phrases. There are no words to express my thanks to all the artists who make this event special and give "us fans" a night to remember two truly amazing people and the music they created! I am forever at your beckon call, so c'mon out and experience the evening with us. It's going to be quite magical!!!"

The Key Club Hollywood plays host to all-star jams featuring the vocal talents of heavy hitters like Jerry Cantrell, Dave Draiman, Duff McKagan, Serj Tankian, Mike Muir and Sebastian Bach; the guitar fury from players like John 5, Scott Ian, Phil Demmel, Warren DeMartini, Ben Harper, Chris Howorth and Tom Morello; and the ground-shaking rhythms of Doug Pinnick, James Lomenzo, Ginger Fish, Brian Tichy and Joey Jordison, with many more superstars lending their vocal and playing skills to the metal proceedings ˝ with the whole shebang being emceed by That Metal Show's Eddie Trunk and his co-horts, Jim Florentine and Don Jamieson. In addition, kicking off the event will be Kill Devil Hill, featuring the legendary Vinnie Appice and Rex Brown. Also on deck are Dio Disciples featuring the great Rudy Sarzo and vocalist Tim Ripper Owens with a special appearance by Glenn Hughes.

It will truly be a special evening of hard rock featuring luminaries from some of the biggest bands in the world: Pantera, Anthrax, Disturbed, Slipknot, Rage Against The Machine, System of a Down, Machine Head and many more, all in the name of all things Dimebag - with 100% of proceeds from the event benefitting the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up & Shout Cancer Fund. Additionally, attendees will be able to land some limited edition merchandise and purchase Monster Energy cocktail drink specials with 100% of the proceeds benefitting the cause as well.
