I'm just sad I didn't get to see them (Darrel included) in concert.
I saw Dimebags' band DamagePlan at Download Festival this year, and I must say they were utterly amazing, and did a cover of "Walk" and "This Love", and it was truelly a mind blowing experience.
It is sad to see that people's deaths seem almost irrelevant to people, merely because of the type of music they listen to or part of. The Daily Mirror (a British newspaper) would much rather have a picture of Britney Spears in Las Vegas on the front page, than have a damn near execution of one of the best guitarists known to man, relegating his death to page 25, of which only filled around half a page.
