Report on 'Dimebag' Darrell's Death Released
Band Photo: Damageplan (?)
A new 627 page police report including nearly 300 witness interviews was released last Thursday. The report details a chaotic scene at last December's Damageplan concert, with the tour manager getting wounded as he tried to prevent a gunman from climbing on stage -- he then was helped to the side where he watched former Pantera guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott get shot in the head three times. Some clarifications from initial reports are included in the following excerpts:
Christopher Paluska, Damageplan's tour manager, said he was shot first -- though it was previously believed Abbott was the initial victim.
Paluska was one of three people shot who survived. Another, stage technician John Brooks, wrestled with Gale who pinned him as a hostage as police moved toward the stage.
During the melee, Damageplan drummer Vincent Abbott hid behind amplifiers and lead singer Patrick Lachman jumped and screamed into the microphone for someone to call the police.
