POOL DRIED UP: We don't want to appear hard-hearted, but we're not so sure Drowning Pool has cancelled its tour as a sign of respect for Dimebag but more out of fear that they'd be the targets of the inevitable copycat event. Their statement reckons:

"No one knows why some people do the heinous things they do. Dimebag Darrell was the epitome of rock and roll. He wasn't just a player that all guitarists aspired to be, but the genuine article and a true friend."

Meanwhile, Ozzy Osbourne was woken up yesterday afternoon to be told of the incident - he expressed his shock, before asking what day it was; and Chimaira singer Mark Hunter said he didn't know anybody in a band who hadn't "stolen a few guitar riffs" from Dimebag. Apart, presumably, from drummers.
