Friends of Gale's describe him as a loner. They say over the past few years his personality changed, and they add that they distanced themselves from him. They say he loved music, and was almost obsessed with the band PANTERA. Two members of PANTERA formed DAMAGEPLAN.
Former friend Jeremy Brey says, "We started noticing things. We were having band practice and he came over to sing a couple songs. There were a few he wrote that had PANTERA lyrics and we said you can't do this, these aren't your songs." Gale was a Marine, but friends say he did not show extra interest in guns or violence.
WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK.
I'm glad I did get to see them live a couple of times.
