You'll live forever in the minds and hearts of pure metalheads... I love your brilliant work, especially in Rigor Mortis' almighty "Freaks"!
R.I.P. axe-warrior, you were a great influence for many!

This makes me think of Dimebag a lot. Anyway, I'm always sad to read news like this.

RIP.

Indeed... Dude worked on Psalm 69, Houses Of The Mole and Rio Grande Blood which have some of the strongest riffs Ministry ever made.
A heart attack while playing? Oh man

RIP

RIP I don't listen to them but it is always sad to see a musician die. Especially, a day after the bassist for Iron Butterfly died. And this man was very young, 47 isn't very old.

Music was my life, music brought me to life and music is how I will be remembered long after I leave this life. When I die there will be a final waltz in my head that only I can hear.
