Hellyeah cover ends with Dimebag tribute

Posted by on July 28, 2016

A lot of people likely listened to Hellyeah for the first time in a while after hearing that the band’s Phil Collins cover of “I Don’t Care Anymore” on their new album Unden!able featured guitars by one Dimebag Darrell. The band the former Pantera guitarist was playing in when he was killed, Damageplan, had initially started covering the song, but didn’t get around to finishing it. Since Dime’s brother Vinnie Paul plays in Hellyeah, the band recovered his guitar tracks, and were able to include them on the cover.

The band just released a video for the song, and it’s a dark video, literally. However, amidst Chad Gray and the rest of the band playing, there are archival shots of Dimebag playing, reminding everyone watching that he played on the song. However, perhaps the way the video ends is the most touching. The song is only about 4:40 long, but the video ends with a solid minute of a shot of one of Dime’s guitars in a tribute to the fallen legend.
