Dimebag Darrell Gets Rockwalk Induction
Dimebag Darrell Abbott, the great Pantera guitarist who died in 2004, will be posthumously inducted into Hollywood’s RockWalk, the only sidewalk gallery dedicated to honoring those artists who have made a significant impact and lasting contribution to the growth and evolution of rock and roll. A bronze bust of Abbott will be unveiled during the ceremony and later installed along the RockWalk posthumous inductee wall, which also includes Robert Johnson, Elvis Presley and Bill Graham, among others. Abbott will be located directly adjacent to other equally accomplished musicians and innovators on the RockWalk such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Johnny Cash, Van Halen, Bonnie Raitt, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, the Ramones, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Brian Wilson, Stevie Wonder, John Lee Hooker and Earth Wind & Fire. The event will take place at Hollywood’s RockWalk, 7425 Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood, CA, on Thursday, May 17, at noon. The ceremony is free and open to the public.
