DISTURBED Drummer Says DIMEBAG's Murder Has Cast Shadow Over Live Performing

DISTURBED drummer Mike Wengren, a close friend of late DAMAGEPLAN/PANTERA guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott and his brother, DAMAGEPLAN/PANTERA drummer Vinnie Paul, told Launch Radio Networks that the onstage shooting of Abbott has cast a shadow over live performing. "I think one of the most scariest things is, you go up onstage, and there's this energy transfer between the band and the crowd, and you almost feel invincible. You feel very empowered," he said. "Never in a million years would anyone ever think something like that was even possible, and I think it just caught everyone off guard. It's pretty scary."

Nathan Gale, the disturbed ex-Marine who shot and killed Abbott and three others at a DAMAGEPLAN concert in Columbus, Ohio on Dec. 8, 2004, was killed by a police officer during the incident at the Alrosa Villa nightclub.

A second DAMAGEPLAN album, as well as other previously unreleased material featuring Abbott, may surface sometime in the near future.
