Was the Assassination of Pantera Guitarist Dimebag Darrell just an “Unfortunate Accident”?
6TH ANNIVERSARY OF DIMEBAG’S MURDER – WE REMEMBER!
A gunman stormed the stage during a heavy metal concert in Columbus, Ohio, on a Wednesday night 2004, firing at the band and audience and killing four people before a police officer shot and killed him, police said.
WHY would somebody want to kill Dimebag? Good question. Culture is the Mass controller. (for those unaware of the triggers) Music and Rock n Roll have used by Illuminati Controlled Groups like the “Tavistock Institute” and its big eugenics brother UNESCO …. For decades. Just the shock of live murder can have a debilitating effect on witnesses causing post truamatic stress in survivors.
In the book, A Vulgar Display Of Power, several of Gale’s personal writings, given to the author by his mother, suggest that the gunman was not angry about Pantera’s breakup or a belief that Pantera had “stolen songs;” instead, the documents suggest that Gale’s paranoid schizophrenia caused delusions that the band could read his mind, and that they were “stealing” his thoughts and laughing at him. While Gale could have been legitimately crazy (on SSRI’s) this can also be a tell tale sign of MK ULTRA style mind control.
Like Kurt Cobain who we also believe was Murdered, and Michael Jackson, Dimebag might have simply been worth more dead than alive! Those holding Pantera contracts might have been “Damaged” by Damage Plan – Dime’s new band which could hurt profits coming from his old band. Of course Dime’s death created a surge of sales for all things Pantera. Could it be that Dime’s death was performed as a duel purpose killing for both money and fear based mind control? Gun Control?
The “Security Industrial Complex” needs to keep you afraid of lone nut killers, that could be the guy next door, so they can justify metal detectors (no pun intended) naked scanners, and total a Surveillance Society (which includes SELF surveillance in the form on snitching on your neighbors!) Because of this TRAGIC incident: More ex military people losing their 2nd amendment rights thanks to Bush / Obama / McCain supported HR 2640. More cops are at concerts arresting people for pot smoking and public intoxication on the pretext of keeping the kids “safe”.
We always ask Cui Bono – Who benefits from such an event. It always leads back to the Usual Suspects and the PTB. Whether they just take advantage of a bad situation, or they plan it…. It all pretty much works out the same way.
Light a candle for Darrell AND John Lennon today!
Mom Of Concert Killer: He Was Sick
Discharged From Marines After Paranoid Schizophrenic Diagnosis

(AP) The mother of the man who gunned down former Pantera guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott and three others during a concert said her son was discharged from the military because he suffered from paranoid schizophrenia.
Mary Clark told Columbus television station WCMH on Wednesday that her son, Nathan Gale, was released from the Marines in 2003 after the military diagnosed the disorder. Gale’s rampage last week ended when an officer shot him to death.
Clark, who asked the station not to show her face on camera, also said she bought the 9 mm semiautomatic handgun used in the shooting for her son, before he was diagnosed, because she was proud of his military service.
“I’ll never, never be able to live that part down,” she said.
Gale, 25, of Marysville, charged the stage at a show by Abbott’s new band, Damageplan, on Dec. 8 at the Alrosa Villa nightclub. He shot and killed four people, including Abbott, before police officer James D. Niggemeyer shot him to death.
Clark said Niggemeyer had no choice.
“I give that man credit,” Clark said. “You’ll never know how many lives he saved.”
Two others were wounded in the attack, including tour manager Chris Paluska, who was released from the hospital Thursday.
The shooting investigation is nearly complete, police said, but they may never know exactly why Gale opened fire.
His mother said Gale was obsessed with Pantera, a popular, Grammy-nominated heavy metal band, and had a drug problem in high school. She said he believed the band had stolen song lyrics from him, a statement also made by some of Gale’s friends who have said Gale complained the band was trying to steal his identity.
Gale came home from the Marines with medication for his illness, Clark said, but she did not know whether he took the pills.
Maj. Jason Johnston, a Marine Corps spokesman at the Pentagon, said legal reasons prohibit him from for discussing why Gale was discharged.
In a separate interview, Gale’s former boss at an oil-change business said Gale acknowledged suffering from schizophrenia when he was hired in October 2003. The condition is characterized by delusions and hallucinations.
“I would always say, ‘Are you OK?’ Occasionally I’d ask him if he was taking his medication,” Rich Cencula, owner of Minit Lube in Marysville, told The Columbus Dispatch. “He always told me that he was.” He said Gale la
Dimebag Darrell Remembered By Fans On Anniversary Of His Death
Pantera guitarist was gunned down onstage in Ohio six years ago.
Six years later it’s still hard to believe. As fans around the world gather to remember the 30th anniversary of ex-Beatle John Lennon’s murder, a small but no less dedicated family of music fans will mark Wednesday’s (December 8) anniversary of another shocking rock and roll death.
It was six years ago today that beloved Pantera guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott, 38, was gunned down in Columbus, Ohio’s Alrosa Villa rock club in front of 250 people by 25-year-old gunman Nathan Gale. As confusion reigned in the club, Gale jumped onstage at the beginning of a set by Abbott’s then-new band, Damageplan, pumping several bullets at close range into the guitarist before opening fire on the crowd and killing three others. A police officer responding to the scene killed Gale a short time later with a single shotgun blast to the chest.
The metal world was stunned by the murder of one of its most beloved and larger-than-life figures by a deranged fan who seemed to hold a grudge about the breakup of pioneering speed metal act Pantera. Abbott’s death, which took place on the anniversary of Lennon’s assassination by a crazed fan, still lingers as one of the strangest incidents in rock in recent memory. A number of metal sites paused on Wednesday to pay homage to their fallen hero.
The Noisecreep blog noted that “his death still hurts for the majority of metal fans, his former bandmates and his brother even though over half a decade has passed since the incident. … While most of the music world is reminiscing today about the 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s also-senseless murder, the metal community is mourning the loss of one of the greatest guitarists to ever pick up an axe.”
The site spoke to former Pantera singer Phil Anselmo about the murder earlier this year, and he said the memory still haunts him. “I will say that with each passing year, it gets harder and harder and harder. This year was really rough,” he said of the work required to curate the reissue of the band’s legendary Cowboys From Hell without Dimebag’s help. “When I look around today and see what an impact that we made, and where heavy metal is at today, and I think of what could have been? What should have been? It’s very hard. It’s hard to come to grips with it.”
The Metal Underground site also marked the solemn occasion. “To a person, everyone who came into contact with Dimebag Darrell as he made his way around the world several times over playing the music he loved was made to feel like an equal, like a friend,” read the site’s remembrance. “With Dime, there were no walls between the fans and the musicians, between crew and band. There was only kinship and a common love of music and having the best time humanly possible. Even those of us who never met the man felt like we knew him from watching the Pantera home videos and seeing him exude one hundred percent uninhibited enthusiasm on stage each and every night and completely unfiltered, boyish joy off stage when he partied with his brothers by blood and by metal, the hardest drinking band in the business, Pantera.”
In keeping with Dimebag’s wicked sense of humor, the Houston Press took the occasion to point out some eerie parallels between Abbott and Lennon’s murders, like “both men were guitarists.”
Over on the boards of the official Pantera site, some fans paused to pay tribute to their fallen idol. “I miss Dimebag,” wrote Jyrki, a drummer from Finland. “Makes me sad that there’s never going to be another Pantera record. I’m broken.”
