Slash (GUNS N' ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER), David Draiman (DISTURBED, DEVICE), Gavin Rossdale (BUSH), Sebastian Bach (SKID ROW), GODSMACK, JOURNEY and Scott Ian (ANTHRAX) are among the rockers who reacted on Twitter and Facebook to the passing of actor James Gandolfini, who gained fame playing a mafia boss on HBO's "The Sopranos". Gandolfini died earlier today (Wednesday, June 19) after suffering a possible heart attack while on holiday in Rome, Italy. He was 51 year old.
JAMES GANDOLFINI, ONE OF MY FAVORITE ACTORS OF ALL TIME. REST IN PEACE BROTHER. YOU WERE ONE OF THE GREATS.
