:( December 8th 2004 at a club in Columbus Ohio, Damageplan took the stage.The two most well known members were ex Pantera members Dimebag Darrel and Vinnie Paul. During the show (in the middle of the first song or the second) an estranged man managed to leap onstage due to inexperianced/lax security, he started screaming and drew a gun and shot guitarist Dimbag Darrel 4-5 times at point blank range.After he fell the gunman reportedly shot at other members of the band but missed (I think from what I got from the reports.) Then turned his attention and gun onto the crowd. 3-4 ppl were reported dead, and 5-6 injured.:(

R.I.P. Dimebag Darrel, he accomplished alot in his time here.He will be sorely missed by fans and familey around the world.

I heard it on the news last week...Thursday? Anyway, all it shows is that security needs improvement. It really should never have happened.

I heard about this off my friends...
The world loses another guitar hero...

Didn't the police kill the gunman after he shot the people in the crowd? I can't beleive they could just let somebody jump onstage... harder to beleive they let someone into the gig with a gun...

I was in shock when I found out it was not a joke.. This is really sad and such a waste of talent.

I mean it is just a fine example of how stupid the human race is!

12-13-2004, 02:24 PM
What's stupid is that the guy shot him because he thought Dimebag stole his lyrics

Darrell never stood a chance. It's a total waste of talent, and he'll be sadly missed.
