A terrible day for the brass section.

I always looked forward to hearing Der Holle Rache played four octaves down when I'd arrive at the opera house for performance nights. We'll now only be surrounded by PETA protesters and there will be no one to drown them out.

What a complete idiotic fucking tragedy that Tuba Man was killed. What the fuckety fuck is up with this world? And it was TEENAGERS no less. Fuck me.

Every death diminishes the whole, I guess? I agree with OP that people getting murdered, senselessly is an awful thing, but I don't know if the fact that he was "tuba man" makes it worse or not.
