  3. Geez that sucks. I'm not much of a fan either, but they are a pretty talented band, and its sad if this kinda thing happens to anyone.

    Yeah, I heard about that on the radio a little while ago. I'm not a big fan, but I do like 'em. I hope everyone makes a speedy recovery, and I feel for the family of thier driver. :(

    Not a fan, but I hate to see that happen to anyone. Here's hoping they have a speedy recovery, and condolences to the driver's family.
  9. Bad news that the driver was killed, but I'm not overwhelmed with emotion. No doubt MTV will use this to boost their new album sales exponentially.

    Thats too bad about the driver but I really hate alien ant farm. I remember seeing them on farm club, this music show. This was before they were famous. ANd I can remember thinking "damn, these guys are terrible, I hope they never get famous. Then they get famous by doing a MJ cover. Isn't that like cheating. I think biters should be punished.

    It's always curious, in threads like this, why people mention whether or not they're fans. Someone died, others were hurt. My thoughts are with the driver's family, and I hope the others heal quickly.

  13. Ditto, very tragic event.

    Remember guys, they are one of us....
  14. Yeah, I feel for the driver's family and all those that got hurt!!!!

    I remember the state I was in a relatively normal crash - for someone to have died in a coach this must have been a horrific crash.

    Condolences to the drivers family and a speedy recovery to all the injured!
  15. strange man, they played in Holland just last monday (on the biggest dutch festival called Pinkpop). It's a good thing you can't look into the future otherwise I'm sure they wouldn't have played the show the way they did. Hopefully they'll recover soon and my condolences to family of the bus driver.

    Wow thats terrible:(, What's up with the increase in bus accidents lately, People must taking to ground instead of the Air a lot more??.
  17. Tour bus accidents are not a new thing, look at the Metallica tour bus accident, or the Nevermore accident.

    Perhaps it's because even though they are not fans of said band, they feel bad that such a tragedy could happen. Maybe it's a more "polite" way of saying, "Even though I don't particularly like them or their music, I do feel bad that someone was killed and others were injured."

    Just my thoughts on that subject.
