    Re: Dimebag Darrell RIP

    The whole thing is disgusting.

    Yahoo does a bit more on what happened (I've cut it down a bit, keeping the parts about last night):
    [font=arial]
    [/font][font=arial] A man charged on stage and opened fire at a heavy metal band and fans at a crowded bar, killing four people and wounding two others before being killed by police, officials said on Thursday.[/font] [font=arial] Among the dead was "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott, guitarist for the band Damageplan, who witnesses said appeared to have been singled out by the gunman and shot several times at close range. [/font]
    [font=arial]
    Some witnesses told police the 25-year-old gunman, Nathan Gale of nearby Marysville, Ohio, shouted, "You broke up Pantera" before gunning down Abbott and firing at other band members and the crowd in the Wednesday night shooting.
    [/font]

    [font=arial]"There was no connection between (Gale) and the band, at least formally. We do not know the motive and maybe never will. He is dead," Columbus Police spokesman Sgt. Brent Mall told reporters outside the club, the Alrosa Villa. [/font]

    [font=arial]Gale fired more than a dozen shots both at the band and the crowd of roughly 200 patrons, at one point stopping to reload his handgun with an ammunition clip, police said. [/font]

    [font=arial] A police officer confronted Gale as he held a hostage in a headlock and was apparently attempting to flee, Mall said. The officer, James Niggemeyer, killed Gale as the hostage, who was not harmed, struggled to get out of the way. [/font]

    [font=arial]POLICEMAN SAVED LIVES [/font]

    [font=arial]"We believe he saved other lives" by shooting the gunman, he said. [/font]

    [font=arial] Two people who were wounded were taken to a hospital. [/font]

    [font=arial] The band was playing the first song of its set when the gunman, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, charged the stage and began shouting and shooting, witnesses said. Some members of the audience initially thought the intruder might have been part of the band's act.

    He shot him because he broke up the band. And yet Chapman didnt even touch Yoko.

    Re: Dimebag Darrell RIP

    Awful. I was so shocked to see the tail end of the story on the local news, I switched to CNN Headline News because I thought I misheard and they had a quick thing up about it. Such an immense, pointless tragedy.

    My mother is friends with Damageplan's singer Pat Lachman, and my mother's fiance is a major Pantera fan, both of them are devastated, and my mom is still worried about Pat since we haven't heard if he was hurt as well or not.

    It still seems unbelievable.

    The online rumor is that Pat was the other band fatality. My thoughts and prayers to all his friends and family.

    Re: Dimebag Darrell RIP

    I wouldn't have known him from a bar of soap and I'd probably think their music is vile, but this is just terrible, terrible news. The local news paper read somethingto the effect of "Man wanted to make friends but didn't know how." Ummm... yeah! A gun isn't a good way of making friends. Turning it on someone who gives others pleasure and then on a couple others in the audience certainly won't win you any friends!!!

    Then, even more outrageous, is some spokesperson for gun advocacy. He e-mailed a local radio station and the subject line read: "Guns save lives at Columbus nightclub: Interview opportunity for gun advocacy". IDIOT!!!! It was a gun that started this whole thing. Of course a gun saved the lives of others... that's because it was in the hands of a police officer! A gun ENDED the lives of four people before the dirtbag was brought down by the police. I'm really sorry... but people who feel they need guns should expect this sort of thing.

    Re: Dimebag Darrell RIP

    Details about the shooter are beginning to come out. As nutty as he sounds, I wouldn't be surprised if he'd asked Dimebag to autograph a copy of The Catcher in the Rye earlier in the day.

    From the AP newswire, courtesy of Yahoo News:
    Ohio Club Shooter Obsessed With Band

    By ANITA CHANG, Associated Press Writer

    COLUMBUS, Ohio - The man who shot former Pantera guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott and three other men to death at a nightclub was obsessed with the heavy metal band and made bizarre accusations against the group, a one-time friend said.

    Nathan Gale apparently believed Pantera musicians were trying to steal his identity and the lyrics to songs he had written, former friend Jeramie Brey told The Columbus Dispatch in Friday's editions.

    Gale, 25, charged the stage Wednesday at a show by Abbott's new band, Damageplan, and gunned down four people including Abbott before a police officer shot him to death. Two others were wounded.

    Investigators said they may never know Gale's motive. Some witnesses said he yelled accusations that the influential heavy metal guitarist broke up Pantera, but police had not verified those reports.

    Brey and former friend Dave Johnson said they had become frightened by Gale's behavior and distanced themselves from him several years ago. By that time, Johnson said, Gale had begun talking and laughing to himself and once appeared to be holding an imaginary dog.

    "He used to be Pantera's No. 1 fan and has liked them for as long as I've known him," Johnson told the newspaper. "After a while something happened. He just kind of snapped. He went from being a cool guy to being a guy you didn't want to be around."

    Johnson said he met Gale, known as Nate, in the late 1990s through a mutual friend in their hometown of Marysville, about 25 miles northwest of Columbus. They shared a love of rock music, held jam sessions and attended concerts together.

    Brey recalled that Gale once showed up at his house with some songs he had written, but the words appeared to be copied from Pantera. Gale told Brey he planned to sue Pantera over the lyrics and for stealing his identity.

    An imposing figure at 6-foot-3, Gale had made people uneasy at a Marysville tattoo parlor, staring and locking them into conversations about heavy metal music.

    When he played offensive line for the semi-pro Lima Thunder football team, he psyched himself up before games by piping Pantera music into his headphones, coach Mark Green said.

    "He seemed like a normal guy you would meet any other day," said Anthony Bundy, 20, who lived on the same block as Gale. "He was a keep-to-yourself type of person. He was real quiet."

    Hours before the shootings, Gale got into an argument with a worker at the tattoo studio over some equipment he wanted the studio to order for him. He later angrily walked out of the shop.

    The worker, Bo Toler, said he thought Gale had come to the tattoo parlor because he wanted somebody to hang out with. "I just thought he was quiet. I thought he had low-self esteem because of his thick glasses," Toler said.

    Gale had had minor run-ins with police since 1997 but wasn't considered a troublemaker, authorities said.
    He served in the Marines in North Carolina until November 2003, when he was discharged after less than half of the typical four-year stint, Marine spokeswoman Gunnery Sgt. Kristine Scarber said. She declined to explain the discharge, citing privacy rules.

    Gale's mother, Mary Clark, did not return phone messages seeking comment.

    The violence at the Alrosa Villa club came just after the opening chords by Texas-based Damageplan, the band formed by Abbott and his brother, drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, after they left Pantera. Gale dodged two band members, grabbed Darrell Abbott and shot him at least five times in the head, witnesses and police said.

    In less than five minutes, Gale had also killed Erin Halk, 29, a club employee who loaded band equipment; fan Nathan Bray, 23; and band bodyguard Jeff Thompson, 40.

    Two other band employees, tour manager Chris Paluska and drum technician John Brooks, remained hospitalized Friday with bullet wounds. Paluska was listed in serious condition and Brooks in good condition.

    Vinnie Paul Abbott thanked fans for their support in a statement the band released Friday.

    "With all his greatness and accomplishments on the guitar, DIME will be missed more for his giving personality, charisma, caring for others, love and most of all his HEART!! Twice as big as the state of TEXAS!!!!!!!!!!!!," Abbott said.
    Our prayers continue to go out to Dimebag's loved ones, and our stereos will continue to blast Vulgar Display of Power.
