Today we celebrate the birthday of the late great Dimebag Darrell Abbott, and even though his life was cut short we can still learn life lessons from such a great bro.

I never had the opportunity to meet Dimebag or see him live at any show. But I feel like I have known Dimebag through stories from my friends and musicians that knew him the best.

First off when you ask someone about Dimebag Darrell a smile instantly comes to their face because of Dime being such a stand up bro. Dimebag was never to good to say hi to someone or talk rock and roll or whatever was on someone's mind Diembag Darrell had time for you.

You can watch videos of Dime either onstage or doing the hang and you can see the light that just glowed from from this man.

Just from those few sentences you can learn from Dimebag on just being a cool dude. So the next concert your at introduce yourself to someone and talk some rock and roll and spread the joy of rock and roll and the legacy of Dimebag Darrell Abbott.

When you see me out and about I usually wear shorts and you can see my tribute to Dimebag Darrell on my left shin.
