PcP Films and RSL TV have uploaded new video of the Alrosa Villa nightclub in Columbus, Ohio, where PANTERA and DAMAGEPLAN guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott was murdered more than 16 years ago. You can now see the two clips below.
Plans are afoot to build three four-story buildings providing one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom apartments on the site where Dimebag and three other people were killed by a 25-year-old ex-Marine named Nathan Gale.
In a message accompanying its YouTube video,PcP Films wrote: "With the recent news that this unfortunate landmark in the history of heavy metal will soon be demolished, I felt compelled to go and visit it. Here is what it looked like in it's final days. RIP Dime, and all the other victims from that fateful night."
For more than 45 years, the Alrosa Villa hosted local and national acts, including SLIPKNOT, KORN, QUIET RIOT, FOGHAT and BUCKCHERRY.
In December 2019, Alrosa Villa was listed for sale for $1,295,000, including the 10,000-square-foot building, two lots totaling 7.2 acres, the liquor license, bar and equipment. FULL STORY
