Happy Birthday Dimebag!
Get a party playlist and a recipe for the perfect Black Tooth cocktail as we celebrate all things Dimebag!
Today, metal remembers Dimebag Darrell on what would have been his 43rd birthday. We”ll start off with our top 5 tunes that Dimebag would have banged his head to tonight:
1. Kiss – Cold Gin
Kiss. Possibly the only thing that Dimebag loved more than shots of Crown Royal.
2. Van Halen – …And The Cradle Will Rock
Dime and Vinnie kicked off their musical endeavours by playing Van Halen covers in Texas.
3. Ted Nugent – Cat Scratch Fever
Pantera covered this beast of a track for the Kiss-themed movie, ‘Detroit Rock City’. Listen carefully and Dime throws it into the mix during ‘Cowboys From Hell’ on ‘Official Live: 101 Proof
4. Slayer – Dead Skin Mask
Dime and the King were super-close so we pick the Slayer tune with the most groove.
5. Judas Priest – Painkiller
More old-school love to celebrate Dime’s birthday.
No Dimebag celebration would be complete without a shitload of alcohol. Black tooth’s should be the order of the evening and here’s how to mix your own!
Come back later on today for the first of our series of reports from this year’s Ride For Dime event!
