Spinal Tap Not Inaccurate
A few days ago "Dimebag" Darrell, guitarist for Damageplan and Pantera was murdered onstage by a gunman who killed three others before being shot himself. Very shocking news and certainly no occasion for frivolity, but I can't help feeling that the luminaries of the metal community that MTV quotes do not quite hit the right note. What does our reader think?
"I'm speechless...This is totally unreal. Dimebag is a fucking legend and this is total bullshit."
(former Rob Zombie/ Ozzy Osbourne bassist Rob Blasko Nicholson)
"This is insane and this is beyond travesty."
(Killswitch Engage frontman and former Damageplan tour partner Howard Jones)
"If this is allowed to happen, what the hell? What does that say?"
(Slipknot singer Corey Taylor)
