Hardcore Icons Share Dimebag Memories

Hardcore Icons Share Dimebag Memories -

A new video of metal legends, Kerry King (Slayer) and Scott Ian (Anthrax) discussing their recent Metal Masters 4 concert along with slightly more hardcore subjects, such as arrests, alcohol & strippers has surfaced on, reports LoudWire.

Both Kerry and Ian touched on a number of subjects, however some of the most sentimental moments of the informal chat came when the pair were remembering Pantera's Dimebag Darrel.

"My normal rules went out the window when I played with those guys," recalled Ian.

"I would try to keep it to a minimum and say, 'I'm not doing more than three shots with you before I play.' But then they're walking onstage and handing me drinks in the middle of a set or pouring 'em down your throat. Any time I toured with those guys was the drunkest I've been in my life."

King chipped in, saying, "[Drinking] just made [Dimebag] loose. It got him in the vibe to play."
