Bizarre. Former Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell was shot and killed last night during a peformance by his current group Damageplan, along with 3 other people in the club. Reportedly the gunman, who was shot and killed by a policeman soon afterwards, rushed the stage denouncing the guitarist for causing Pantera to break up, and then pulled out a pistol and shot Darrell several times before shooting others. Ironically this occured on the 24th anniversary of John Lennon's murder in New York in 1980. Its hard to imagine someone's fandom for a group going that far, but its really not that much different than the stalkers who have pursued celebs, and sometimes killed them.
