Last night, Dimebag Darrell of Pantera and Damageplan was gunned down while performing in front of an audience last night. The shooter also fatally shot five other people, including two members of Damageplan, before a police officer fatally shot the shooter. What would drive someone to pull off such a terrible mistake is beyond me.
Dimebag was a leading force behind Pantera, and his guitar riffs blew us away. He influenced so many people, and he helped keep the spirit of metal alive. I’m dedicating this blog to him and his bandmates, his family, his friends, and his fans.
