Darrell Lance Abbott, guitar player for Pantera and Damage Plan was killed on Dec 8th, 2004. It is ironic that John Lennon from the Beatles was also killed on Dec. 8th, 1980. They were both murdered by crazy fans. Dimebags because the murderer thought he broke up Pantera and Lennon's murderer wanted him dead because he said that the Beatles are bigger than Jesus Christ. He was apparently reborn or something.
