I have been in the music business since the late 60's.
The change that has occurred since then is horrible.

There was a time when the Biz was ENJOYABLE to work in.

All things are different now sadly.

I can't believe this happened at the Beverly Center. It must of happened in the parking garage. Did this guy really think he could get away with that?

@ realist, WOW..YOU ARE a really cold SOB. Yes, it is a realistic thing that people do die, however being shot at 21 at the mall!! I know quite a few 21 year olds who go to the mall and don't end up shot!!!

Maybe if it was one of your family members who got shot...THEN YOU WOULD "CARE"!....JERK-OFF!!!

Your complacency is what is wrong with this society!

# 24....a tear drop tat may also mean you lost someone. He got it for his dad after he commited suicide.

Let this man rest in peace....21 is way too young and nobody deserves to be murdered.

It was pre-meditated. Things like that do not happen at the Beverly Center.
Probably an east coast / west coast thang.
