Slash and Sebastian Bach were, as usual, among the first to send their best regards to the master of the heavy metal guitar riff, with the former Skid Row singer doing so in particularly colorful style. 'That Metal Show' co-hosts Eddie Trunk and Jim Florentine also expressed shock and optimism. As the news spreads and more rockers react, we'll update this page:
