Dec. 8, 2014 marks the 10th anniversary of Pantera / Damageplan guitarist ‘Dimebag’ Darrell Abbott‘s tragic death. In remembrance of the guitar phenom, we’ve spoken to rock and metal’s greatest musicians to gather stories and testimonies of admiration towards the immortal shredder.

Our video tribute series, 'Remembering 'Dimebag' Darrell,' continues with a testimonial from Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian. In this clip, the Anthrax legend speaks of "always looking forward" to spending time with Dime. The Pantera guitarist's signature black tooth grin didn't really delight Ian's palate, so Dime surprised Scott with a special gift.

Scott Ian also raves about Dime's playing abilities, saluting the musician's taste for both ripping, complex solos along with simple, monstrous riffs. Check out the clip above and stay tuned for more 'Dimebag' Darrell memories, coming from now until Dec. 8.
