What in the hell is going on?

Is it me or is the world going nuts? Right after the Dimebag Darrell murder comes news that former Iron Maiden front man Paul Di’Anno was attacked on stage at a heavy metal festival in Israel. I could be wrong but I don’t believe that bands being physically attacked on stage has happened that often in the past and now with the tragedy of last week fresh in our minds is there going to be a bunch of lunatics enacting copycat crimes for the publicity? Remember when the only danger a band faced on stage was firecrackers, beer bottles and over-excited teenyboppers? Am I overreacting? Please tell me that I am.
Later.
