December 8th is always a sh*tty day for rock & roll radio. There’s lots of mourning to do whether you’re thinking about John Lennon being shot 4 times in 1980, or Dimebag Darrell being shot on stage ten years ago today.
Ask any guitarist and they respect Dimebag. There are still lots of stories like this, where somewhere in the crowd puts everyone else at a venue, including the band, at risk. Actually, here’s an interesting piece on venue security from Rolling Stone today >> http://rol.st/1A8YZpC
Regarding Dimebag, Loudwire has put together a tribute to the revolutionary metal guitarist featuring Slash, Anthrax’s Scott Ian, Judas Priest’s Rob Halford, Godsmack, Five Finger Death Punch and many more.
