Top 10 Musician Tweets About Bin Laden's Death

Last night, this member of Rocks Off was sitting at a pizza parlor off Ella when he found out that our military killed Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan. It was a monumental moment in time, as we sat back and looked at the past decade and half of our lives, since we learned his name in 1998 with the bombing of the USS Cole, and then of course, his hand in 9/11.

So many of our friends and loved ones in the military, including even ourselves briefly, fought and trained against this man and all that he represented. As much as we made jokes ("Ozombie Bin Laden") there was an intense feeling of relief and pain in our hearts, like an era was ending that we have known longer than most anything else in our lives.
