NickelBack Song - Side of A Bullet. This is my music video/slideshow is done as a tribute to Dimebag Darrell. Chad Kroeger wrote this song just 3 mo after Dimebag's death. The song was born from the pain caused by the violent death. Dimebag's heart lives in our music.
quote From NickelBack - about song ~ The latter tune sprang to life after Dimebag was shot and killed onstage in 2004. Kroeger honored his fallen friend by composing and recording "Side of a Bullet," then seeking the blessing of his brother, Vinnie Abbott.
"I called him up and played the track for him over the phone," Kroeger says. "He said, 'I'd love to have you do a song about my brother.' Vinnie then sent some guitar outtakes and we pieced together a solo and put it on the song. The result is a new Dimebag Darrell solo."
