15 years ago today, Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell has passed away at the age of 38. He was murdered by a crazy fan during a live show on stage.

Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello has shared a photo of Dimebag and wrote a deep message about his death. He also mentioned a little wish about a riff written by Dimebag. Here’s what he said:

“15 years ago today Dimebag Darell passed away. While I didn’t know him well he always came across as an authentic and ceaselessly positive guy with an overflowing love for rock, metal, guitar & that crazy shot of booze he concocted.

He is missed. And that riff in “I’m Broken”? Damn, I wish I wrote that.”

A fan named Kappeler said:

“And that riff in um every Pantera song? Damn I wish I wrote that”

Another fan named Ohmaro commented:

“Fuck yeah… My cousin would come from Mexico and make me go with him to see them, therefore I became a Pantera fan. Now I have a son and he will be a fan too.”
