Better yet, why don't we just merge 'em.   ;)

Yeah, RIP heavy metal dude (and the others).   :-\

well that;s just ****** up. Damageplan was supposed to be here in Chicago for a big show tomorrow, I'm surprised i didn't hear anything about this on the local radio. ****** psycho pulling crap like that, i'm surprised he was able to get into the club, let alone on stage carrying a gun. a sad loss to the metal world with the death of Dimebag.

I couldn't ******* believe this when I heard it on the radio this morning.

I went to see Pantera back in 2000 after the Reinventing the Steel album came out. Great show, and you could tell Dimebag loved what he did for a living.

My brother's a huge heavy metal fan, and Pantera/Damage Plan/Down in particular, so he isn't taking this too well.

Also, December 8th, 2004 is exactly 24 years to the day after Lennon was shot and killed. Chilling, no? :-\ :'(

Yeah, there was more anticipation when DBB didn't know about it.

Maybe if DBB isn't the one to let us know that he started a thread from now on - we'll find it and that might bring back a little bit of the suprise.

It is somewhat like having Alex Trebeck answer in the form of a question for the contestants before they even have a chance to buzz in on Jeopardy.

It's bad form, and viewership will decline.

I concur, this was a lot more fun when DBB didn't come here and announce the deaths like this :'(

This could be the bridge that brings Packers fans and Vikings fans together.

Yeah yeah...its one of those things though that is hard to explain.  You just don't like any of those guys.  Especially the ones they always show on TV like the numbnuts who thinks Lombardi is a Saint. 

Packer fans are the most obnoxious fans on the planet hands down
