Sevendust's Morgan Rose, with singer Lajon by his side, talked to the cameras about what he remembers about the fateful day the Dimebag was shot.

Ultimate Guitar

Thursday (December 8) marked the one year anniversary of the death of former Pantera and then Damageplan guitarist Dimebag Darrell Abbott. Darrell was viciously gunned down at a club in Ohio, and three other members of the band's entourage were killed.

Dimebag is missed by his fans and by his fellow bands. Sevendust's Morgan Rose, with singer Lajon by his side, talked to the cameras about what he remembers about the fateful day and said he spoke to Darrell's brother and drummer Vinnie Paul immediately after the event went down.

"Yeah, we got off stage and found out right when we got off stage. I actually called and actually talked to Vinnie while he was still sitting in the club and they hadn't even taken Darrell's body out yet. He answered the phone, and I was just calling to to see if it was a rumor, and it was happening. We've seen Vinnie and we've talked to him a lot and we're just here like millions of other people trying to support him because this is rough times. The holidays are coming up and the anniversary is coming up. And Darrell was really close with us, so that's the worst thing that ever happened."

    god this sucks. i saw vinnies face at the memorial when he was chanting "dime" and right at the end it looked like he was gonna cry and that hurt, it made me sad. god bless to vinnie and the abbott family and the victims, and most of all, to dime R.I.P. brother
    Lmao good thing you corrected yourself, but i think Dime deserves it more anyways. john lennon every year had a big deal made about him all over the radio and whatnot, now im just afraid not as many people will remember dime as they go straight to lennons anniversary first
    Sorry, I didn't know it was Lennons anniversary. Well, the reason probably is thats Dime's was more recent.
    Dime, forever your heart will rest/rock in peace, and one day we will all be rockin in heaven. FUCK THAT BAS**** who hurt you, i hope he rots in hell!
