At a Damageplan show in Columbus, OH, some crazed fuck charged onstage at a nightclub and opened fire on the band and crowd, killing Dimebag and three other people before a police officer shot him to death.
Damageplan had just begun its first song at Alrosa Villa club Wednesday night when the gunman climbed onstage, started yelling and shot (Dimebag) five or six times at point-blank range, witness Chris Couch said.
Supposedly, the fucker was pissed about the demise of Dimebag's last band, Pantera and had singled out the axeman as the cause of the breakup.
This is just plain, fucking pathetic. But then again, these people exist.
My sympathies go out to Damageplan, their fans, and all of Dimebag's friends and families. Big Up, Darrell.
