According to Rita Haney, “Crazy thing about this event is, you never think the last one can be topped. But when this much creativity comes together in one room, dude, watch it go! It will light you up! The vibe is always so incredible. It’s like that vibe you get on Christmas Day before you unwrap your presents and the excitement of not knowing what you’re going to get. But I guarantee, it’s not those shitty socks you get from your grandma every year. You’re gonna dig it and leave with a smile! That’s the magic ‘something Dime’ can create.”
Dug Pinnick of King’s X has said about Dimebash: “I love being a part of Dimebash. So many friends and musicians show up and it’s like a family reunion. And keeping Dime’s party tradition in full bloom.” Pantera’s Rex Brown adds, “Dimebash, to me, is the epitome of celebrating his life and music all in one night! He was always about camaraderie, brotherhood and a killer f*ckin time! Dimebash Smokes On.”
Kyng’s Eddie Veliz has also said: “Dimebash is one of the best shows/parties Kynghas played. One of the greatest memories of my career happened at Dimebash 2016 when I had the pleasure of playing Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish You Were Here’, the details to this story are very long winded but let’s just say it involved a couple of acoustic guitars and Dave Grohl...”

Dimevision Vol 2: Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over is a true celebration of Dimebag and how he lived his life.
The DVD/CD set – which includes more footage, true gems and classic moments – also includes five previously unreleased demos, picked from a vast catalogue Dimebag accrued since longtime girlfriend Rita Haney gave him his first 4-track in 1984. Dimebag’s personally-written lyrics, dates and notes on those tracks are also included.
