Dimebag Darrell's Grave Defiled With Homophobic Slur in Texas

By    |   Monday, 02 Mar 2015 08:04 AM

The grave of long-dead guitarist Dimebag Darrell was vandalized by a former lead singer from a metal act who confessed online to defiling the tombstone with a homophobic slur but insisted he didn't steal Dimebag's boots.

Reece Eber, former singer of the metal band Nuclear Hellfrost, wrote on Facebook that he was "deeply sorry" for the slur, but added that he didn't steal anything from the site, according to the Music Times. Eber said he didn't have a motive for his act.

"I'm not asking for forgiveness, I'm not asking for sympathy, I am only attempting to express an apology that I want to reach out to the people I hurt and offended with this dumb act," Eber wrote on Facebook. "There is no reason for what I did and it was the worst mistake I've made in my young and evidently dumb life. I don't blame the threats and comments.

"I understand how you feel and that's why I'm an asshole because I knowingly was out for blood, and so I don't blame anyone for wanting to do god knows what to me," Eber continued.

Dimebag Darrell, a guitarist for Pantera, was shot to death while performing with the band Damageplan on Dec. 8, 2004 in Columbus, Ohio, according to Loudwire.com. This past December was the 10th anniversary of his death.

Pantera responded on its Facebook page to a social media posting by someone called "Crustyplague" stating that they "hated Pantera," spat on Dimebag Darrell's grave and stole a pair of cowboy boots at the gravesite.

"We are absolutely disgusted by this," wrote Pantera on Facebook. "We ask that all of you please show Dime & his grave the respect he deserves. This conduct will not be tolerated and the authorities have been notified."

Last month, Guitar World magazine remembered Dimebag Darrell with a tribute, looking at his guitar collection, fan art and tattoos. In the magazine's February issue, it gave away a seven-inch "flexi-disc" of a 2001 recording of "Whiskey Road," on which the guitarist played all the instruments on the tune.
