Pantera’s Dimebag Darrell Jokes Around + Jams ‘Walk’ at Godsmack Gig in Never-Before-Seen Clip
This is pretty special. A never-before-seen clip of Pantera's Dimebag Darrell has been released, showing the legend joking around backstage before jamming 'Walk' in Las Vegas with members of Godsmack.
Released by Billboard, this piece of footage was filmed over a decade ago for Godsmack's 2002 'Smack This!' DVD. However, it didn't make the final cut. With the 10th anniversary of Dimebag's tragic onstage murder having passed on Dec. 8, Billboard figured it was the perfect time for fans to check out the unreleased piece of tape.
The video begins with Dime huffing into the camera and joking around about Godsmack frontman Sully Erna backstage. If you watch closely, not only will you see Erna, but Sharon and Jack Osbourne as well. The clip quickly cuts to footage from a Las Vegas Godsmack gig, where Dimebag, along with Pantera bassist Rex Brown and drummer Vinnie Paul, jam 'Walk' with Sully Erna on vocals.
Though left on the cutting room floor, the video isn't to be missed. It spotlights Dime's originality as a guitarist, showcasing the legend's beefy riffage and masterful soloing. Check it out above!
