DIMEBAG’s Brother VINNIE PAUL: ‘Nobody Knows The Pain I’ve Been Through’

Former PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott spoke to this week about “Rebel Meets Rebel”, the upcoming album featuring the Abbott brothers (Vinnie and the late PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott) along with PANTERA bassist Rex Brown and country music outlaw David Allen Coe. The CD is due on May 2 via Vinnie‘s independent Big Vin Records.

“Some of the songs are about gambling, some of them are about broken hearts and some are about drinking,” Abbott tells “There’s stuff on there that’s balls-out metal, and there’s stuff that’s country. There’s even a flamenco guitar song.”

Abbott says that he and his brother had hoped to release the album after recording a second DAMAGEPLAN record. After the breakup of PANTERA and the launch of DAMAGEPLAN, Abbott says the two feared fans would be confused by another project.

Also on May 2, Big Vin will release “Dimevision Vol. 1”, a DVD that collects behind-the-scenes footage of Dimebag. Abbott dismisses those who think he may be cashing in on his brother’s legacy. “If the roles were reversed and I was gone, I would want him to be as gung-ho about this as I am,” he says. “Anyone who says I’m cashing in can kiss my ass. Nobody knows the pain I’ve been through.”
