Sunday, December 12, 2004
Tragedy struck Wednesday night, Nathan Gale, a former marine obsessed with Pantera, jumped on stage at a rock concert and gunned down 4 people. One of these people was former Pantera guitarist Darrell Abbot.
Gail stared at people in Tattoo parlors, making them uneasy.
Gale, 25, was obsessed with the band Pantera. As he grew more erratic, Gale’s friends had distanced themselves from him. He forced people to talk about heave metal music. He made outrageous claims about writing Pantera’s song lyrics. He told people his plans for suing the band. Gail stared at people in Tattoo parlors, making them uneasy. He designed Feng Shui appetizers for parties that didn’t exist. But none of them thought he was capable of violence.
The Pun came from an interview with Gale’s estranged friend Jeramie Brey. Brey told the Columbus Dispatch, “He was off his rocker.”
