Philip Anselmo (PANTERA), Dave Grohl (FOO FIGHTERS), Robert Trujillo (METALLICA) and Dave Lombardo (former SLAYER) were all part of the all-star jam at the annual Dimebash charity event to raise money for the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund, held this year at Lucky Strike Bowling Lanes in Hollywood, California on January 22, 2016.
The show started of with local Long Beach band Revolution Mother, who were very impressive and got the crowd warmed up for what was to come. Next to perform was Nick Bowcott, who was a great friend of deceased Pantera guitarist, Dimebag Darrell Abbott. Nick kicked ass on some Pantera cuts and had the crowd starting a rowdy mosh pit, complete with drinks flying from unsuspecting fans to the front of the stage.
More special guests took the stage, including John Bush (Armored Saint), Doug Pinnick (Kings X), Mikkey Dee (MOTORHEAD), and Gilby Clarke (former GUNS ‘N ROSES).
