The Dime Bash, a huge party at LA's Key Club is happening tonight to honor the memory of Dimebag Darrell. Additionally, proceeds go to Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund. So basically, it's a great excuse to party hard. There are going to be all sorts of big names out there remembering Dime, covering classic Pantera tunes and downing some blacktooth grins. Recently, Kerry King was interviewed about the upcoming show and he may have left a big cat slip out of the bag:

"Rita's [Dime's girlfriend] busting my balls to do it, and I told her I would if she got me a real singer," Kerry said. "'Cause you never know who's gonna show up. So she goes, 'Phil Anselmo, Chuck Billy, Robb Flynn… Are those good enough?' And I'm, like, 'Fuck, I'll do it with any one of those guys.' But I'm gonna see her tonight. I haven't committed, but I guess she committed me. (laughs) Oh, Dave's doing it, for sure. But I'm pretty sure I'll do it."

Wow, this could be a really huge moment if Phil Anselmo and Vinnie Paul share the stage. We all know there was a huge rift between the two after Dime died, because Vinnie partially blames Phil for his brother's death after things Phil said in the media about Dime deserving to be hurt. But, that was honestly the old Phil Anselmo. He seemed to have cleaned up as of late and has been nothing but apologetic to Vinnie and Rita for the way he acted in the past.

I sure wish I was in LA tonight for this Dimebash, but with the advents of modern technology and Flip cams, I'm sure we'll be able to get in on the fun just a bit. Here is the entire scheduled lineup of artists for tonight's big show:
