Published Dec 30, 2014Sadly, this December marked 10 years since the tragic onstage shooting of Pantera/Damageplan guitarist Dimebag Darrell. Though he's gone, the iconic metal musician is hardly forgotten, and his career is being saluted with the unveiling of a previously unreleased solo recording called "Whiskey Road."
The track was issued on a flexi-disc for the latest issue of Guitar World and was recorded back in 2001 during Pantera's Reinventing the Steel tour. Landing a little lighter than the Texas crew's usual mayhem, "Whiskey Road" is Dimebag's bloodshot ode to the brownest of spirits. Though the intro is full of intricate acoustic strums, Jack bottle slides, fiery leads and hard rock drumming take over by song's end.
