Annual Dimebash at Santa Ana’s Observatory Rallies For Four Hour Rock Marathon (SHOW REVIEW/PHOTOS)

From Glide Magazine:
“The NAMM show held each year in Anaheim California always brings a multitude of rock veterans to the area who end up playing at various venues across the county. The first night of this year’s show on January 25th was no exception with concerts cropping up all across the region. But the sold-out show at The Observatory in Santa Ana featured the most impressive line up of veteran rockers, coming together for the annual Dimebash. The tribute concert in honor of Darrell Lance Abbott (Dimebag), the former guitarist of Pantera, who was murdered onstage in 2004. The show benefited the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund, Kitten Rescue and KYNG’s GoFundMe campaign set up to help recover stolen gear and transportation.”

The Metal Mayhem at Dimebash 2018 by ocweekly.com

Despite being largely regarded as one of the greatest guitarist in heavy metal for his contributions in Pantera, his legacy can’t help but include his larger than life personality, and as his brother and longtime drummer Vinnie Paul would say, a heart as big as Texas.

Now, more than a decade later, metal fans gather in celebration on Thursday evening to show respect for their lost icon, and to put a resounding cap on the first day of NAMM 2018. Hosted by radio personality and “natural born headbanger” Jose Mangin and held at the Observatory in Santa Ana. I could tell it was going to be a good turnout when my parking location was so far from the venue, it had me bemoaning the fact that I hadn’t yet downloaded an app on my phone for counting steps, something I should be doing every year NAMM rolls around.
