Metal Heavyweights Pay Tribute To 'Dimebag' Darrell Abbott During Five-Hour Benefit Concert
December 15th, 2011 9:59pm EST
System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian, Tom Morello and Disturbed star David Draiman were among the rockers who paid tribute to late Pantera guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott at a marathon party in Hollywood on Wednesday night.
The trio joined members of Pantera, Sebastian Bach, Duff McKagan and singer/songwriter Ben Harper at the Dimebag Bash, which annually honors the memory of Abbott, who was the victim of a crazed gunman at a concert in 2004.
The night's highlights included a version of Bruce Springsteen's "The Ghost of Tom Joad" performed by Morello and Tankian, and a reworking of Pantera's classic "Seek and Destroy," sung by Draiman.
Proceeds from the five hour tribute concert will benefit the late Ronnie James Dio's Stand Up and Shout charity.
