DALLAS CHAPTER OF LITTLE KIDS ROCK IN HONOR OF DIMEBAG DARRELL ABBOTT
Guitar monster-shredder, Dimebag Darrell Abbott will be honored for the newest chapter of The Little Kids Rock school program in Dallas, TX this Tuesday, February 19th.
In May 2007, Dimebag was chosen as the next inductee for the famed Hollywood RockWalk at the Hollywood Guitar Center on Sunset Blvd. After the induction, to further honor Dimebag Darrell Abbott was The Six String Masterpiece Auction held to benefit The Little Kids Rock Foundation. Dimebag's Black Tooth Bash immediately followed the auction with special performances comprised with some of Dimebag's closest friends and influences. The auction raised enough funds to open two chapters in Dimebag's name. One chapter to be opened in Tampa near Dean Guitars, Dimebags guitar of choice and the other chapter in Dimebag's home of Dallas, TX.
Dimebag Darrell Abbott was loved by all and a hero to many. His unexpected departure from our world has been a great loss, yet he left us a legacy that will continue forever. It is a legacy to his family, friends and fans of the great music that he loved to perform as well as his crazy, charismatic sense of humor that touched many.
Little Kids Rock believes that all children in our public schools deserve music education as music education is a transforming force in children's lives. Dimebag had the same philosophy with always sharing his passion and love of music to the world inspiring kids to pick up a guitar.
The ceremony for Dimebag Darrell Abbott's Little Kid's Rock Chapter begins at 1:30 pm, February 19th, 2008 at the Pleasant Grove Elementary.
