He was raised in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles. He now is a resident of Dallas, Texas where he played with the rap rockband Hellafied Funk Crew and the Horror Rock band Shadow Reichenstein, and Vanilla Ice.
In 2003, The Abbott Brothers formed the heavy metal band Damageplan, after Pantera's breakup. Kakaha played bass, and former Halford guitarist Patrick Lachman on vocals. Damageplan recorded one album, New Found Power, which was released in February 2004. On December 8, 2004, Dimebag Darrell was shot onstage by former US marine named Nathan Gale in Damageplan's tour at Alrosa Villa in Columbus, Ohio. Damageplan was split up after the death of Dimebag Darrell.
Recently, Bobzilla shot 2 videos with Orphaned To Hatred. "Each video is directed by OTH vocalist McBride and will feature a special guest appearance by Hellyeah bassist Bob Zilla!" "Bob Zilla was at Dimebag's side that devastating night of December 8, 2004 when, his friend and band mate Dimebag Darrell Abbott was suddenly and cowardly shot down in cold blood. He joined Orphaned to Hatred to silence harsh critics who feel the band is nothing more than a Rip Off and to validate the only true successor to the legacy Dimebag's Pantera left behind." -Metalmann
