"Richmond is known worldwide for it's high energy music?"

Is it?

"He's in a jail not in America. That can't be good."

Most jails are bad.

"A fan jumped onstage and shot legendary guitarist Dimebag Darrell Paul."

Oh dear...

@ Oz: It's Virginia bruthah. Nuff said... No offense to any Virginians that may drop in, but I'm sure you can testify to the fact that 90% of the population in Virginia breathe exclusively through their mouths.

Isn't Gorec*** from Virginia? Nout wrong with that gentleman!

I wasn't having a pop at Richmond, just saying that, from an international point of view, I know a little about shows in New York, Texas and New Orleans, nothing about Richmond or Virginia in general though.

I can't speak for the "worldwide" perception of Richmond's music scene, and I grew up 45 minutes down the road so I was never totally in the thick of it, but I can say that as with most major cities, if you're looking for it, you'll find it - from great to terrible, and everything in between.

OKE: And I love you bruthah, but damn there's some hillfolk up in that dive. It's a generalization, and like most can be dangerous territory, but my point is that this news clip is about par for the course there.

"Dimebag Darrell Paul" made me cringe a little, but that kind of metal ignorance is hardly unique to VA. To be fair to the "in jail not in America" guy, I think his basic point, which I admit could've been articulated better, is that being brought up on charges and jailed in a foreign country, whose laws and standards of justice may differ and result in a drawn-out international legal headache, is simply not a good situation, whether or not you're guilty.

That said, BG: pistols at dawn. I demand satisfaction!

No, it's not unique to Va. Unfortunately, it's fairly wide spread. Ignorance abounds here in the land of the free and the home of the slaves.

Carl: Oh you cute little cuddly man you!
