    Default Christina Grimmie

    I had no idea who she was until today, but still a very bizarre & sad story.
    It's creepy to read her last tweet, where she asks everyone to come down
    and see her in Orlando, not realizing she'd be shot dead moments after
    her set.

    I'm annoyed that this connecting article left off Dimebag Darrell, as he
    was shot by a fan/stalker, as well.
    Idiot reporters!

    Never heard of her either. Beautiful girl..probably some psycho that she didn't respond to on social media.

    So sad. I didn't know of her before today either. So young, and fortunate enough to be pursuing her dream. Heart breaking...

    Very sad. I didn't know of her either, but it's a terrible tragedy none the less.

    Never heard of her. This is a very sick world today.

    it's said she didn't even know the guy and there was no known relationship

    sounds like a Rebecca Shaeffer situation. Anybody old enough to remember her?

    that's the problem with the entertainment industry...and it is even worse in today's era of the youtube star

    young people get a huge amount of notoriety at a time when they don't have the financial means for the necessary security, and there they are, exposed and vulnerable

    we really need to have a serious focus on the state of our nations mental health care system

    I had a guy with a big YouTube following who plays guitar on my podcast once, and he said yep, his YouTube videos had attracted some kooks, and he didn't have the resources to hire a security detail! And this was some 40-something guy playing guitar who hangs out in his own house. I can't imagine for a 22-year-old girl who goes on a real tour and has to shake hands with a bunch of strangers.

    I play in front of very small crowds, 75 - 100 max, and stuff like this gives me the creeps.

    Just some random nut job decides "hey, you're up on a stage, looks like a good person to shoot".
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I'm sure this nutjob attempted to interact with her on her youtube page, or
    some other social media, only to be ignored because he's some anonymous follower.
    He probably built this fantasy in his head before-hand, then thought, "I'll show her!"

    I noticed Kellyismusical closed up her page & made her videos private.
    She probably got sick of these idiot commenters posting, "I like the way your
    tit rests on the guitar..."

    Or the over-used, "You are so hot, please marry me!"

    Then there was Travispicker, a great youtube classic rock player, closing his
    page down, due to death threats (??????)

    WTF is going on with all the lunatics just ruining everything for everyone?

    Neil Peart has said this is part of why he shies away from fan meet-and-greets and stuff. On their documentary he said, "I was the world's biggest Who fan, okay? But I never once would've thought about looking up what hotel they were staying at and hanging out in the lobby!" And at least Neil is a "legitimate star" who could afford a couple of bodyguards. This girl was 22 and just trying to take her YouTube stardom as far as she could on a shoestring budget.
