Let's not judge a book by looking at the cover (Bo Diddley, great 
philosopher).  A friend of mine who is a self proclaimed metalhead (also a 
major Who fan) had met Dimebag Darrell Abbot several times over the years 
and said the guy was down to earth and was respectful to fans.  Let's not 
forget "image" is a big part of rock 'n' roll and is not always the reality 
of those involved.   You really don't think Keith was Moon the Loon 24/7?

As for the killer (25 yr. old Nathan Gale a discharged ex-Marine), 
eyewitness accounts say he was upset about the break up of Pantera screaming 
that it was Dimebag's fault the band broke up as he shot him.
