Metal bassist shoots self, wife after Iraq

Stephen S. Sherwood, former bassist for Colorado heavy metal band IMMORTAL DOMINION (web site, MySpace.com page), shot and killed his wife before turning the gun on himself Wednesday (August 3), nine days after returning to their Fort Collins home from a tour in Iraq, according to the Associated Press.

When Sherwood joined the Army a year and a half ago, the former musician was "long-haired and tattooed and about the furthest thing from a military man you could imagine," a neighbor says.

When he came home on leave from Iraq last winter, the difference was dramatic: "Not only had he put on a lot of weight, he was real bulked up and had shaved his long hair and looked like an MP," neighbor Steve Johnson said.
