Watch Pantera’s Dimebag Darrell, Vinnie Paul + Rex Brown Perform Together For the Last Time
Most know Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul from Pantera and their follow-up band Damageplan, but how many of you remember Gasoline? It's not surprising if you don't, as the band was simply a fun project. However, on New Year's Eve 2001 they took the stage for a big blowout, welcoming Pantera bassist Rex Brown onstage as well. This was reportedly the final time Vinnie, Rex and Dime performed live together.
A fan with the user name Mr. Chris was at the show and filmed footage of this rare performance. Philip Anselmo was not with the group, as the band employed another singer for vocals. The jam finds the group having a good time as they rock through a number of songs like 'Gasoline' and 'Going With the Gut.'
Mr. Chris states in his description of the show:
This is my PERSONAL UNSEEN RARE FOOTAGE of Dimebag's RARE AND UNRELEASED BAND GASOLINE. This was a party band for fun only. These were just jack around tunes made to be funny and have a good time. These weren't meant to be serious by any means. The NEW AND UNRELEASED ANYWHERE ELSE songs...'GASOLINE' and 'GOING WITH THE GUT.' This is the LAST TIME REX VINNIE AND DIME played live together. The last song they got up and jammed Led Zeppelin's 'Moby Dick.'
I hated sitting on this for so long but it's time the world gets to see it and enjoy it like I do. I've been lucky enough to have this since 2001 and I've never given a copy away and never let it out. Please respect that it's mine and I will not tolerate anyone stealing it. This is OWNED BY ME. If the family wanted it...that's another story. This show was a very special night...New Year's was always a big deal for the brothers and usually they did a new years gig for fun with Pantera but after Phil became harder to deal with they had to do their own thing on New Year's. Pantera never played again and I'm thankful I saw the last moments these three stepped on stage together.
