Forever overshadowed by John Lennon with the date coincidence, but I'll never forget the day my sister phoned me in tears to tell me about the Damageplan shooting. RIP, Dime.

Yeah. Not to take anything away from Lennon, who I couldn't care less about, I did actually shed a tear when I heard about Dime.

Last week saw the anniversary of the passing of Ray Gillen too.
RIP Ray
