Performers Who Died In Front Of An Audience

Whoever says "well, at least they died doing what they loved!" when a performer dies on stage clearly doesn't get why that would suck- because all of your accomplishments in life are overshadowed by the way you died.

'Dimebag' Darrell Abbott was one hell of a guitar player and a heavy metal god thanks to his role in creating Pantera, and in 2004 he was set to become an even bigger star with the debut of his post-Pantera band Damageplan at the Alrosa Villa club in Columbus, Ohio.

But Darrell's career came to an abrupt and tragic end when ex-Marine Nathan Gale walked up to the stage and shot 'Dimebag' dead, all because Nathan was upset about Pantera breaking up.

Now people know 'Dimebag' Darrell's name because of this tragic event rather than because of his incredible guitar playing, which is a real shame because 'Dimebag' truly deserved his guitar god title.

Such a shame to lose one of the greatest metal guitarists ever. And I still call him Diamond Darrell which he used earlier in his career.
