Agreed!

It is very strange-and seems like such a waste. The criminal pulls the trigger-ends someones life over what? So this a hole will go to jail=big deal. I dont get it-never have-and in this case it especially makes no sense.

I was 2 rooms from the shooting. The man tried to enter the wrong room. The man in the room got nervous and thought he was being robbed. He then barred the door with a chair and took out a gun just in case. The man kept either kicking or banging the door so the man inside shot in self-defense. He was half asleep at the time so he wasn't completely aware of what he did. He claims the shot woke him up and he is currently very sorry and strongly regrets what he did.

TOO FCKING BAD!

"He regrets it"...

Why did he fire THRU the door-after he barred the door. It isnt like someone broke in-

Who the fck fires thru a door because they think they are being robbed?

I think this person you speak so highly of should take a good look at how he widowed a wife and left 3 kids fatherless!

You seem to have alot of compassion for someone who just murdered a great person in cold blood!

"he regrets it"... It wasnt an accident. He didnt accidentally shoot the guy-he intentionally shot the guy.

I remember back around 1986 or so. I was fresh out of high school, and ready to get started in the music business. Tom was a huge help for me and my band. He worked at American Music at the time, and We bought tons of sound equipment from him. Years later, after I finally started playing shows around Seattle, Tom would be back at the sound board mixing for all the bands of the night, and yes, he was a great sound guy! Tom will be greatly missed!

I worked with him-like some of you here. I talked with some people who were currently in his studio recording. The wife-witnessing this whole thing-being there I guess is much better than if she was somewhere else when it happened-talk about a rough moment.

All of us musicians are reeling in our own ways-and all have stated its the family they are sending their most heartfelt wishes too. At the same time-their is always a missing element to the seattle music scene. It is amazing the impact one person can have-and especially someone who worked with and helped so many.

Music is hard-its where art meets business. It is a group of people in the end-a community. I have noticed that alot with the passing of Tom and others-maestro-Shikany. When a superstar like Kurt kills himself its terrible as well. More people feel that worldwide. People who truly feel music and the scene feel this sort of a loss. You didnt see him in the spotlight-you didnt notice him on videos or big interviews. He wasnt getting praise and radio interviews. What he did was important to more players than just any one musician. He was a member of alot of bands. He was a valued member of the music community.

Moreover-a very missed member of a family. His and ours.
