A video of late metal kingpin Dimebag Darrell and his trusty Dean ML has surfaced online for the first time.

The near seven minute clip features a young Dimebag, who at the time was going by the alias "Diamond" Darrell, sporting a rather distinct hair metal look, and glam-rock getup.

Watch the video, and you'll hear all of Dimebag's early influences, from Randy Rhoads to Eddie Van Halen and Yngwie Malmsteen channelled in the performance.

According to the YouTube description attached to the clip below, Darrell Abbott was just 18 when this video was recorded in 1984.
