] Dimebag Darrell Abbott, formerly of seminal 90's metal band
] Pantera and currently of Damageplan, was shot dead onstage
] during a gig in Ohio by the ultimate death metal posterboy
] Nathan Gale. Here are some key quotes from the article.
] "witnesses reported hearing an accusation about Abbott
] breaking up his former band"
] Officer James Niggemeyer, who, if I had his last name I would
] have had it legally changed. (this guy's just waiting for a
] racially charged police brutality case to come his way, and
] when it does, may god have mercy on his soul...and his name),
] shot the gunman to death, presumably due to the fact that
] Niggemeyer must have been a Pantera fan.
] "The tall, physically imposing Gale hung out at Bears Den
] Tattoo Studio, staring at people and trying to get them to
] talk about music and bands, manager Lucas Bender said."
] But here's the best part!
] Dozens of messages were posted to the band's Web site after
] the shootings.
] "This is the worst day in metal history," one posting read.
] "The metal world feels your pain," another wrote.
] "How dare this man try to stop the METAL!!!" wrote someone
] "Dimebag will be back! You can't kill a man forever who had
] the metal pulsing through his veins!" The messages continued.
] "He's down there with our lord and master satan, rocking out
] with Randy Rose, the Great White guy, and f**king OZZY man!"
] Referring to superstar Ozzy Ozbourne, who, all appearances
] aside, is not believed to be dead."
] "This was a f**king awesome metal show, man! I never seen
] nothing so good. F**kin' A, man!" These writers were not
] available for further comment.
The Great White show was WAYYYYY more metal than this.
Save the gunfire for hip-hop, pyrotechnics gone haywire for metal.
