Zakk Wylde talks about how it was drinking with Dimebag Darrell

Zakk Wylde talked about how it was like drinking with Dimebag Darrell on The Jasta Show.


Read what he said:

“There were very few that could hang with St. Dime. Pepper [Keenan, of Corrosion of Conformity and Down] was just telling me some severe comedy the other day about Dime coming in at like 8 o’clock in the morning when we were touring Australia or something. At 8 in the morning with just a tray full of Crown [Royal], Black Tooths… Like 50 Black Tooths.

“And he was like, ‘We’re doing a drinking contest, last man standing’ or whatever. And it got down to the point where we drank all day until Pepper said, ‘Zacky, we drank the hotel out of booze and the only thing that was left was those little bottle of Kahlua.’

“And we actually went down on those things. Then it got to a point where we just called it a truce. [Laughs] Probably both their livers were throbbing out of their bodies along with their pancreas and kidneys. It was beyond silly.”

“It was a beautiful thing, because everybody there loved Dime. Dime had Eddie [Van Halen’s] black-and-yellow guitar and tons of bottles of Crown in his KISS Koffin. Everybody was obviously bummed out, but they tried to keep the spirit light and celebrate Dime, even though we were all bummed because it sucked that we were never going to see him again.

“I remember just cracking up with Pepper Keenan, like, ‘Pepper, you think there’s enough Crown in there to get him up to God’s tavern?’ [Laughs] And all the stories everybody else had – everybody had all these ridiculous stories about him!”
