Dug Pinnick of King’s X says,“I love being a part of DIMEBASH. So many friends and musicians show up and it’s like a family reunion. And keeping Dime’s party tradition in full bloom,” and Pantera‘s Rex Brown adds, “DIMEBASH, to me, is the epitome of celebrating his life and music all in one night! He was always about camaraderie, brotherhood and a killer f*ckin time! DIMEBASH Smokes On.”
Kyng‘s Eddie Veliz says, “DIMEBASH is one of the best shows/parties Kyng has played. One of the greatest memories of my career happened at DIMEBASH 2016 when I had the pleasure of playing Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish You Were Here’, the details to this story are very long winded but let’s just say it involved a couple of acoustics guitars and Dave Grohl. We are proud once again to play DIMEBASH 2018 because the proceeds always go to a good cause and a life is celebrated. Dimebag helped me mold the sound of Kyng through his music and I will always have a massive place in my heart for him, Rita Haney and the entire Pantera family.”
