Leave it Alone is the first track to be released from the up-coming memorial disc honoring the legendary Dimebag Darrell Abbott. The incredible story of Darrell's life and death is well known and tributes were given to him at the benefit show in Chicago as well as the Rock Walk induction in LA. Unfortunately, not everyone who wanted to participate in those events was able to at the time. We all wanted to do something to honor Darrell.
SHADOWS FALL drummer Jason Bittner, former MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson, ex-JUDAS PRIEST/ICED EARTH and current BEYOND FEAR/YNGWIE MALMSTEEN singer Tim "Ripper" Owens and DAITRIBE guitarist Tristan "1690" Grigsby have joined forces to record a song for the upcoming tribute album to late PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott.
Entitled "Leave It Alone", the track features solos by special guests Nick Bowcott (ex-GRIM REAPER) and fan Brian Cashmore. It was recorded and mixed in Chicago at Farview Recording by Jason Walsh, with additional tracks recorded at Saltmine studios in Phoenix, Arizona and Galahad in Cleveland.
"Leave It Alone" was released to radio on May 6 and ALL proceeds from the song will go to the Little Kids Rock school program.
Little Kids Rock believes that all children in our public schools deserve music education as music education is a transforming force in children's lives. Dimebag had the same philosophy with always sharing his passion and love of music to the world inspiring kids to pick up a guitar.
Leave it Alone was done for Dimebag Darrell Abbott with respect and love. Everyone involved invested their sincere desire to pay tribute to Darrell and gave their blood, hearts and spirit to making something our brother could be proud of.
