Born Darrell Lance Abbott aka Diamond Darrell was born on this day August 20, 1966 in Arlington, Texas. Darrell, his brother Vinnie Paul and Phil Anselmo formed the band Pantera in 1981. Pantera produced some awesome music till the split in 2003. Sadly on December 8, 2004 Darrell was shot and killed on stage. RIP I picked the most mellow song I think Patera ever made, Cemetery Gates but it still Rocks! Thanks to eu396 for the video.
