    A sad day indeed... they were gunned down at a concert in Ohio, with their new band Damageplan. What a fucking world!

    According to eyewitness accounts, the gunman initially shot and killed the band's guitarist, Dimebag Darrell. Darrell, 38, and his brother, Vinnie Paul, 40, are former members of Pantera

    I am/was a big fan of them. "Vulgar Display of Power" in the early 90s left me speechless. The tight playing between the two brothers was what made them unique. This is devastating news for me.

    Holy crap, man I loved Dimebag the man was a genius on the guitar and vulgar display was massive.

    I saw pantera live a few times and they were truly awesome.

    Sad news indeed.

    That link wasn't clear about who died exactly tho..

    "According to eyewitness accounts, the gunman initially shot and killed the band's guitarist, Dimebag Darrell. Darrell, 38, and his brother, Vinnie Paul, 40, are former members of Pantera"

    I couldn't find that in the link, dunno if I just missed it, or it has changed since you initially posted it.

    BBC news have got it as well, so there go all chances of it being a fraud (Which I really really hoped it was)

    RIP Dimebag, I'll be playing Cowboys from Hell neighbour annoyingly loud for you tonight man

    Couldn't find anything about Vinnie dying, maybe he'll pull through

    I'm totally shocked!

    RIP Dimebag, you've brought me hours of pleasure and fingers crossed for Vinnie if he wasn't killed.

    Vinnie's gonna pull through from what I've heard - not even sure if he's injured at all. There's rumours that Pat Lachman's dead and the bassist from the opening band took one in the leg at point blank range.There's a few members of the audience in hospital... and I think a security guard dead.

    Weak.

    I saw Pantera live in the 90's, and loved their Cowboys from Hell and Vulgar Display of Power albums.

    Big loss. Sad.

    Really? That is interesting.

    Sad news indeed. He was one of the best metal guitarists of all time, trully an original. At least he died playing for ROCK!

    RIP Dimebag, give the big D a high-five for me.

    Apparently it might be a big hoax...

    ...some douche from Elektra has been saying it was a publicity stunt. Cocksuckers.

    Though I can't find reference to the message that I was just emailed by a mate... so it's likely it's not.
