Dimebag Darrell AbbottSix years ago today, the world lost an amazing guitarist and songwriter in "Dimebag" Darrell Abbot.  He was killed on stage in Columbus, Ohio at theAlrosa Villa club, a few songs into the Damageplan set.

Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT): "Every time I hung out with Dime, dude, it was just laughing. I just remember laughing my ass off, 'cause he was just one of the funniest guys, you know. And he was just one of the best dudes, man, and probably one of the best guitar players I've ever seen. Not only live, but just everything, you know. He just made it look fuckin' effortless."

Rob Halford (JUDAS PRIEST) on Abbott's legacy: "His music will live forever, and that's the wonderful thing about what we do as recorded musicians — our music will be around a lot longer than we will. So we have his music to cherish, and he still will be an inspiration to guitar players, as he was with PANTERA and with DAMAGEPLAN. So, you know, we'll miss him dearly."
