OLD DIMEBAG DARRELL FOOTAGE SURFACES

600x340xdimebag-600x340.jpg.pagespeed.ic.oC8xr4GBs4

The guys in Pantera had side project just for fun band called Gasoline. On New Years Eve 2001 they played with Sevendust and Drowning Pool. This show ended up being the last time that Dime, Vinnie and Rex were all on stage together. (Rex comes in about half way through the set.) Chris Stiles was at the show and recorded it, but for some reason sat on the footage until now.

This is my PERSONAL UNSEEN RARE FOOTAGE of Dimebag’s RARE AND UNRELEASED BAND GASOLINE. This was a party band for fun only. These were just jack around tunes made to be funny and have a good time. These weren’t meant to be serious by any means. The NEW AND UNRELEASED ANYWHERE ELSE songs…GASOLINE and GOING WITH THE GUT. This is the LAST TIME REX VINNIE AND DIME played live together. The last song they got up and jammed Led Zeppelin’s Moby Dick. I hated sitting on this for so long but it’s time the world gets to see it and enjoy it like I do. I’ve been lucky enough to have this since 2001 and I’ve never given a copy away and never let it out. Please respect that it’s mine and I will not tolerate anyone stealing it. This is OWNED BY ME. If the family wanted it…that’s another story. This show was a very special night…new years was always a big deal for the brothers and usually they did a new years gig for fun with pantera but after phil became harder to deal with they had to do their own thing on new years. Pantera never played again and I’m thankful I saw the last moments these three stepped on stage together. This show was Union Underground opening, then Gasoline, Sevendust, Then Drowning Pool with Dave Williams.

As always Dimebag was very cool to hang with and loved having fun with his friends and fans. I was a young 18 year old that was just happy to be accepted around him. He allowed me to hang around him a lot so I’ll be uploading more video of me with him and times I managed to film. I messaged the family many times about having this included in anything they officially released and never got any emails back so I’ll go ahead and post it here for everyone to see. I don’t think it’s right to just hold on to it without letting others see what it’s like to be around him. RIP dime… you made a huge impression on my young life and I’ll never forget it.

IN MEMORY OF DIMEBAG DARRELL

Today (Dec. 8th) is the anniversary of former Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell’s tragic death. It was ten years ago that Nathan Gale walked into the back of the Alrosa Nightclub in Columbus, OH, went on stage where the band Damageplan had just started their set, took out a gun and shot the legendary metal guitarist and longtime road-crew member Mayhem to death. This weekend in the Hangar we will celebrate his life and crank up Pantera as loud as it will go. For now enjoy some old school interviews and appearances from Dimebag.

METAL BABY PLAYS DRUMS TO PANTERA

A couple of weeks ago there was a video that took over the world heavy metal on youtube. The video is of a 8 month old baby named Wyatt drumming along to Pantera’s classic “5 Minutes Alone” In case you didn’t see it check it out.

Well Wyatt took the big stage on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to prove that it could be done live.

COOKING WITH PHIL ANSELMO #4

Yes the parody cooking animated series Cooking with Phil Anselmo is back for it’s fourth installment and this time Phil Anselmo actually lends his real voice to the episode. It also features guest appearances (voice parodies) from Chuck Billy of Testament, Ozzy, Chris Cornell of Soundgarden, Evan Seinfield of Biohazard/Anika 7, Lips from Anvil and guitarist Buckethead.

To me the best part is how they actually incorporate classic songs from these artists into recipes. Credit goes to Joey Siler who birthed this show out of his brain and does all the animation. Also to the Pantera tribute band Good Friend and A Bottle Booze for doing the music.

 

WE ARE GOING FULL COVERAGE IN THE HANGAR

When a band covers a song it can be the ultimate tribute to their heroes and to their peers. Take Metallica’s Garage Inc. album or the latest tribute record to Dio. There are incredible versions of incredible songs on some amazing records. There are also live records with cover songs, or songs recorded in the studio and used as B sides or soundtrack songs. This weekend inside Hangar 19 it’s classic (and a couple of current) metal bands covering other rock and metal bands.

We are going to go In the Vault with Motley Crue circa 1985. Of course they had a huge song with their cover of “Smoking in the Boys Room” from the album Theater of Pain.

nativity_in_blackThis week’s Power Set is a tribute to Black Sabbath. Both Megadeth and Pantera have covered Sabbath more than once and we’ll hear some gems from both bands this week taken from Nativity in Black 1 and 2. Both records were tributes to the classic 1970’s Black Sabbath line-up.

In 2011 they put out a covers e.p. called ReAniMate: The Covers E.P. The disc starts off with a pretty killer cover of Skid Row’s “Slave to the Grind.” So this week’s Then & Now has both the Skid Row version and the Halestorm version.

maxresdefaultOur soundtrack recommendation is something a little different as it will be a couple of metal bands covering wrestling theme music from the album WWF: Forceable Entry. 

This plus metal covers by and from Annihilator, Sepultura, Guns N’ Roses, Anthrax, and even a female tribute band to Iron Maiden for 3 hours of metal inside Hangar 19.
