Wish You Were Here, Dime

Of course, the day wouldn’t be complete without a tribute to today’s other fallen hero, Dimebag Darrell Abott, of Pantera and Damageplan fame.. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, December 8 is not a good day in rock music history.

So to Dime, to Jeff, to Erin and last but not least to Nathan who was shot dead while performing CPR on Dime, a metal all-star version of Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here”

And, umm, no, I don’t necessarily think that this is a very good cover of “Wish You Were Here” but really, guys, sometimes, just sometimes, it’s the thought that counts.. And, quite honestly, Scott Ian’s reaction just gets to me every time. There’s something heartbreaking about seeing someone who’s used to expressing his emotions through music doing it through tears.
