I know this is old news, I really do. But it is one of those taboo things no one talks about. For those who don’t know, Dimebag Darrell was the guitarist (and a sick one at that) for the band Pantera. One night, while he was performing, a crazed gun man in the audience shot and killed him, on stage. It was tragic, and caught a great deal of people off guard, understandably. Anytime some lunatic takes out their aggression on someone undeserved of it, it is a terrible, unforgivable thing. Yet, in the same breath, is there ANY more metal way to die, then to be shot while you are wailing away on a solo, on stage, in a packed club? I recognize it for the tragedy it is, and I am truly sorry anyone had to go through that, but I also recognize how metal it is. Not to seem tactless here, but there is honestly no more metal way to die, unless you die fighting a bear over the honor of a woman. And honestly, if you could choose a way to die that would be as epic and metal as your music, do you really think Dimebag would have wanted to go out any other way?
