Manowar Pays Tribute To Former Drummer Scott Columbus In The Netherlands
While performing a concert in the Netherlands, American heavy metal veterans Manowar paid tribute to their former drummer, Scott Columbus, who died on April 4th at the age of 54. An excerpt reads as follows:
"I'm sure by now all of you have heard that we lost Scott Columbus this week; he passed away just a few days ago. I can only tell you there's a lot of rumors on the Internet flying around because people have nothing better to do with their fucking boring lives than to stir up shit and create rumors 'cause their lives have no fucking meaning. But I can tell you the truth, and the truth is this - Scott Columbus was our brother and your brother in metal. He was a father, and he was a friend. And he was a great musician, and he was a great guy. And he had a heart of gold. And he liked to drink beer, and he certainly liked this country a hell of a lot.
"Scott Columbus will never be forgotten, his memory will live on because he was one of those rare people. And heavy metal will never die as long as we all stick together.
"So, Scott, here's to you for all the times we played this great country of Holland; I know you're looking down on all of us. He's up there with Ronnie Dio and Gary Moore and all the other greats.
"So we're gonna play one of Scott's favorite songs for you, and this is for him. This is called 'Gates Of Valhalla'."
