Dead Guitarists I Admire, Part III

Unfortunately this is live concert footage poorly synched with the studio track of 'Walk,' but it's all I could find. Dimebag Darrell turned a simple hook into a killer song (my wife, who loves Abba and the Bee Gees and Blondie primarily, considers this her favorite song, and thrashes around like mad when she plays it. Her favorite line? "Can you hear the violins playing your song?"). His soloing is mind-bendingly inventive here. Some motherfucker shot him in the head during a concert a couple years ago. Now he's dead.
