From Wind-Up Records on behalf of Drowning Pool:

Drowning Pool have offered a comment on the passing of their friends. This is all the band has to offer at the moment. Their current tour has been cancelled.

"No one knows why some people do the heinous things they do. What we do know is that once again, we leave tour to bury friends, brothers, and family. 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. Darrell inspired our lives and how we carried ourselves not just as musicians out on the road but also as friends in everyday life. Stevie, CJ, Jason, myself, and especially Dave could not be prouder to be called his friend and family.

Jeff Thompson, known to his friends as 'Mayhem,' was the biggest friend that a man could have or know. Mayhem has been a big part of both Damageplan and Drowning Pool. We will sorely miss him and all of his nearly seven feet of glory adorned in a kilt.

In closing, we would like to send our thoughts and prayers to the Abbott and Thompson families and friends, and the crew of Damageplan."

Adrenaline PR has sent over statement from a variety of artist on their roster:

Doug Sabolick – A Life Once Lost
"A sad fucking day for sure, some miserable 20 something fuck killed a legend. A man who inspired so many to rip and thrash. Pantera was and still is my favorite group and Dimebag was the one who inspired me the pick up the axe, the bottle and the joint and just fucking RIP! I remember being 13 years old and just blasting Far Beyond Driven all day long. Darrell was who I looked up to, someone who did things on his own terms and still succeeded! To the dumb fuck who did this I hope you rot in hell you miserable scumbag!”

Phil Labonte - All That Remains
"I don't know what to say the whole band is shocked our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone!

Cory Brandon -- Norma Jean -
"I think it's insane and scary and most of all sad that this had to happen. How lame. Hearing about this sort of stuff pretty much pisses me off! Metal will miss that dude for sure. I liked him. RIP "cowboy from hell."

Dan Jacobs – Atreyu
"It's a sad day when being such a good guitar player can get you killed. Metal will never be the same."

Keith Buckley - Every Time I Die
"There are alot of counterfactuals involved in senseless deaths like that of Dimebag’s. What if it had been one of our shows? What if there are more people than we know capable of such atrocities? What if it had been me? But these "what-ifs" only come about after a period of reflection. The more sincere questions are the most immediate. Mine was this. "Why did Pantera break up in the first place?"

Trevor – Unearth
"This is a sad day for Heavy Metal, Rock'n'roll and for all his family, friends and legion of fans around the world. Dimebag Darrell was one of the nicest and most genuine human beings all of us in Unearth have ever met. His presence, music and most of all his friendship will be dearly missed. Dime loved life, cared about people and was a true rock icon. Everything about him was admirable. Our thoughts and hearts go out to his family and friends."

Ed Conroy - Full Blown Chaos
"That’s a idol and a legend gone for no reason. There is no reason for something like this to happen and it’s frightening to think if this could happen in the future if, say, some crazed fan jumps on stage and does something like that at a Full Blown show. With Darrell, man, it’s just a waste of talent. People all over are just bummed out about it. Whether he was a friend or not, his influence can be heard all around music now.”

Mark Morton – Lamb of God
"Dime’s music was a huge influence on me personally and on Lamb of God as a whole. As a guitar player he was a true innovator. His sound tone and style shaped modern metal and his riffs are constantly referenced by nearly every band in metal, including my own. Only recently did I have the pleasure of hanging out with him on a personal level and he was as genuine and down to earth as anyone you would ever meet. This is a huge loss to the music world."

Bobby C. – A Life Once Lost
"Not only was Dime progressive musician, his image and style of playing changed the face of metal to this day… Light one up in his memory."
