...I still havent got my head found the news yet. Ive got Pantera constantly on my stereo at work right now. Each customer who comes in chats to me about it. No-one can comprehend what's happened.
At my local rock club tonight, there's gonna be an hour of purely Pantera in a kind of, I suppose celebration of D.D's work.
If 'The Sleep' or, especially 'Cemetary Gates' are played - I will probably be in tears..

Correct. What kind of twat goes around saying things like that?!
Especially when they're in the public eye.
(Or rather desperately trying to remain in the public eye by re-joining his cheesy wrinkleys for a pensioners outing)

As someone said, for the metal world this is like losing a president...
But as someone else said at least he died on stage with his axe in his hand.....he would have wanted it that way....

Just to quote a line from Cemetary Gates - "...it all seems so unreal"

As I said before about Lars when I first posted what he said about Dimebag on page 6 ( ), the man's got class! That was great what he said about Dimebag.

I'm fairly certain that Sixx was being humorous in that statement, and it was clearly something he said before Dimebag's murder, the 2 are not related, and in fact the members of Motley Crue were good friends with the Abbott brothers.

From Yahoo! news:

Police Search for Motive in Club Shooting

58 minutes ago Entertainment - AP Music

By ANITA CHANG, Associated Press Writer

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Even at the tattoo parlor, 25-year-old N***** G*** made people uneasy, staring and locking them into conversations about heavy metal music. But no one pegged the semi-pro football player who psyched himself up before games by piping thrash-rock legends Pantera into his headphones as the type to go on a shooting rampage.

Police say they may never know why G*** charged the stage at a heavy metal show and gunned down four people, including former Pantera guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott, one of metal rock's most revered guitarists.

Some witnesses said G*** began his rampage by yelling out accusations that Abbott broke up Pantera, one of the most popular heavy metal bands of the 1990s. Sgt. Brent Mull said police had not verified those reports.

"We may never know a motive for this, unless he left a note," Mull said.

Abbott, 38, left Pantera with his brother, drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, to form the band Damageplan, which had just begun its first song at the club Alrosa Villa on Wednesday night when G*** dodged two band members, grabbed Darrell Abbott and shot him at least five times in the head.

"He grabbed Dimebag with one hand and shot him with the other," said Kevin Minerd, among the 500 people packed into the smoke-filled nightclub to see Abbott's new band.

In less than five minutes, G*** had shot three others, including Erin Halk, 29, a club employee who loaded band equipment; fan Nathan Bray, 23, of nearby Grove City; and Jeff Thompson, 40, a bodyguard for the band.

Two people employed by the band, Chris Paluska and John Brooks, were in Riverside Hospital on Friday morning with Paluska listed in good condition and Brooks in serious condition.

An imposing figure, G*** was on the offensive line for the semi-pro Lima Thunder in northwest Ohio, coach Mark Green said Thursday. G*** listened to Pantera on headphones before games during his one season with the team, Green said.

"You wouldn't look at him and think he was capable of doing something like this," Green said. "It wasn't like he was a loner."

A teammate, James Patterson, 31, said when he last spoke with G*** in October, he was laying sod for a landscaping company in Marysville, where G*** kept an apartment.

"I'm just stunned," Patterson said. "I can't even describe how he could have done something like this."

G*** made workers and customers uneasy at the Bears Den Tattoo Studio in Marysville, 25 miles northwest of Columbus, where he stared at people and forced them into conversations, manager Lucas Bender said.

"He comes in here and likes to hang out when he's not wanted," Bender said. "The most pointless conversations."

A tattoo artist at the studio, Bo Toler, said G*** was at the studio Wednesday between 5 and 6 p.m. G*** asked about having the studio order tattoo equipment for him and Toler said he told him no. G*** then got very angry and started yelling at him, he said.

"Last night was actually the first time I noticed his temper," Toler said on Thursday. "After the argument we had he kind of walked out with an attitude. He didn't even say goodbye."

G*** had red hair cut very close, often wore a winter hat and was always wearing a Columbus Blue Jackets hockey jersey, said Mandi Dellinger, who works at a cell phone store on the same block where G*** lives. Police said G*** was wearing the jersey during the shooting.

Dellinger said she used to say hello to G*** but they never had a conversation. "He seemed like a nice guy. He just seemed shy," Dellinger said.

G*** had several minor run-ins with police since 1997, but wasn't considered a troublemaker, Marysville assistant police chief Glenn Nicol said.

G*** ate two or three times a week at Maggie's Restaurant across an alley from his apartment, waitress Emi Walden said. He would stay to chat after eating and seemed lonely, Walden said.

"There was something odd about him, not like he would be dangerous to you, just something about him that wasn't right," she said.

G*** mentioned he was in the Marines but wouldn't talk specifics, Walden said. Messages left with several military public affairs offices trying to confirm his service were not immediately returned.

No one answered the door Thursday at the Marysville home of G***'s mother, Mary Clark. A message left on her cell phone was not immediately returned.

Despite a drizzle and temperatures in the 40s, more than 200 people turned up for a vigil Thursday night in the club's parking lot.

Shawn Sweeney, 22, played "old-school Pantera" on an acoustic guitar and a half-dozen young men held a blue tarp over his head and sang along.

"This is beautiful, this is absolutely beautiful," Sweeney said, referring to the growing crowd.

At one point, a naked young man stood in the middle of the street, arms raised, repeatedly cursing G***. The crowd cheered boisterously, and the man took off in a full sprint across the parking lot as four police officers gave chase.

He was soon tackled and a man in the crowd yelled out, "We got your bond, dude!" as the streaker was led off in handcuffs.

Associated Press writers John Seewer in Toledo, Andy Resnik in Marysville and Carrie Spencer in Columbus contributed to this report.

I know it isn't much but I'd like to do something if that would help...
That would be sweet - would u do that? I tried sending ya a PM about it, but you don't accept them.

I always find these statements to be so absurd ("At least he died doing something he loved" and the like), my guess is given the choice, Darrell would have selected dying peacefully in his sleep at age 88 surrounded by his children and grandchildren over being gunned down onstage at age 38 by a psycopath.

Also I feel for his family and dont want to mention his family name. Yes, I know its easily googled but thats not the point.
Good, it shouldn't be mentioned. I also hate to see and hear the name of Lennon's killer mentioned, or screamed out at a concert, because that's what he wanted. He was after fame, to have his name forever asscociated with John Lennon. He doesn't deserve to have that reward. So call him the asshole idiot gunman instead.
