Bad Music

I've been to my share of rotten rock shows, but this seems a bit extreme:
Guitarist Among Five Killed in Ohio Shooting
Gunman Shot and Killed by Police Officer
COLUMBUS, Ohio (Dec. 9) - A gunman charged onstage at a packed nightclub and opened fire on the band and crowd, killing top heavy metal guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott and three other people before a police officer shot him to death, authorities and witnesses said.
Police spokeswoman Sherry Mercurio identified three of the victims of Wednesday's shooting as Abbott, who played for the band Damageplan, and two other men, Nathan Bray and Erin Halk.
She identified the gunman as Nathan Gale, 25, of the Marysville area northwest of Columbus. She said there was no information on a motive or if he had any connection to the band.

"Dimebag" Darrell Abbott was the Pantera lead guitar prior to their split.
