Dimebag Darrell Killed December 9th 2004

Shooter climbs onstage, shoots Damageplan guitarist and three others:

Damageplan guitarist Dimebag Darrell (born Darrell Abbott) was shot dead at the Alrosa Villa nightclub in Columbus, Ohio, last night. Soon after the band began playing, a gunman charged the stage and began firing at the band and into the crowd. Three others were killed before a police officer fatally shot the gunman. Abbott, 38, was formerly a member of Texas thrash metal giants Pantera.

The shooter -- identified as Nathan Gale, 25, of Marysville, Ohio -- dressed in a hooded sweatshirt and hockey jersey, jumped onstage at about 10 p.m., just as Damageplan were beginning their first song. Gale then shot Abbott in the chest five or six times at close range and then turned his gun on the crowd of hundreds. Among those killed were fan Nathan Bray, 23, and Erin Halk, 29, who was either a fan or band employee -- the third victim and two wounded, currently at Riverside Methodist Hospital, have not yet been named.

District patrol officer James D. Niggemeyer, 31, responded within minutes to the call about shooting inside the club, entering through the back door to investigate. The officer then fatally shot the gunman, who at the time was holding an unidentified hostage by the neck.

Approximately 250 out of the 450 audience members (the club holds approximately 600) are currently being questioned by police. Amateur video was also shot during the show, but investigators have not yet determined whether any of the incident was caught on tape.

Formed in early 2003 soon after the breakup of Pantera, Damageplan also includes singer Patrick Lachman, bassist Bob Zilla and Abbott's brother, ex-Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul. Their debut album, New Found Power, was released last February.

Darrell Abbott grew up outside of Dallas, TX, where his father owned a recording studio. He saw many great blues and country artists come through as clients of his father and he learned from them. He learned quickly. So quickly in fact that he was not allowed to enter any guitar contests in the whole state because he'd already won them all...by the age of 16. It was not long before he decided to start up his own band. Eventually he gathered up a collection of musicians and created the monster, we had yet to know, a band called Pantera.

Drawing from such inspirations as Kiss, Aerosmith and Deep Purple, the band released their first album, Metal Magic in 1983. They continued to play their stadium style rock until 1988, when Phil Anselmo became their new vocalist. Phil was not a part of the writing process on the album entitled "Power Metal", but their new thrash/power metal style was beginning to form.

Though not exactly up to the standards we hear from them today, the album was nonetheless impressive enough to garner Megadeth main man Dave Mustaine's attention. Dave was impressed with Darrell's guitar playing and even offered Darrell the open spot in Megadeth. Dimebag chose instead to concentrate his time to his own band. Not long after the band released it's most powerful album to date, "Cowboys From Hell". Sporting a heavier, power/thrash vibe than previous albums, Pantera garnered much attention with this album and went on to create other such powerful albums. "Vulgar display of Power" and the transatlantic success of "Far beyond Driven", put the band at the top of the Metal world. Having never compromised their integrity, Dimebag and company, continue to this day to bring us monstrous guitar riffs, skin beating drums and acidic vocals.
